[glow=green,2,300]The Place Promised in Our Early Days[/glow]
Set in an alternate universe, this sci-fi story centers around three teenagers, a rip in the space-time continuum, and the perseverance to keep a promise against all odds. The film captures slice-of-life beauty between three friends, while epic events threaten to drive them apart.
The animation is breathtaking. The backdrops are stunning; it’s so life-like that it’s hard to believe it is animated. Every outdoor scene is exquisite, as is every shot of sky, whether cloudy, sunny, nighttime, raining or intensely blue
My thoughts: I really liked this movie. Shinkai really succeeded in giving the characters "souls". I havent really seen many titles that are able to do that. The artwork is nothing short of amazing and the voice acting is awesome. They fit the characters very well and makes it easier to think that the characters are real people in your lives. I did prefer this movie over Voices of a Distant Star, but that's just my opinion. Probably the best movie I have or will see this year. 5/5
