Japanese anime is currently enjoying a wave of mainstream popularity, largely down to the success of Your name towards the end of last year. This is one of the Director's earlier films and is was a joy to watch.

Two teenagers a boy and a girl, strike up a heartfelt freindship at school, and although they both move hundreds of miles away to new schools, their love endures, or does it? Told in three parts, the first shows the characters at school together and on a visit to meet each other, the second involves another girl who has a crush on the male character ,and the third sees the two characters in adulthood years later.

The theme of the movie is distance and time and the title takes its name from the speed at which cherry blossom falls, ( popular tree in South East Asia), This is a wonderful, life affirming and gorgeous movie with indelible music, particularly the closing song. Watching it for the second time, it was not hard to see why its Director has become the new star of Japanese Anime.

The animation in this film is beautiful, and I thought the voice acting was also very good. However, I didn't give it a full five stars because I felt that it was a little lacking in parts. It was also very short, but overall I would say I enjoyed it.

Stunning visuals. I only wish there was an option to play the movie with the original audio track without subtitles.

Only in German, Italian, French & Dutch which was not immediately obvious. Really annoyed as i didn't spot a fairly important bit of information about this DVD as the title is in English?!
