All About Lily Chou-Chou is a movie about two childhood friends who drift apart. No, actually, it's much more than that, it's a story about growing up, about solitude, about the meaning of life, about the ether that glues us all together, being that music or the power of our actions and how they affect others around us.
Essentially, the search for our own identity and how two completely different persons can merge their real, free personalities to the point of no distinction.
The amazing soundtrack, the beautiful cinematography and the phrases that pop on screen, conversations about real feelings, help to the melancholic feeling of All About Lily Chou-Chou. And one thing the kids really got right: the songs we hear throughout the film are really ethereal.
