Children of the Sea

Children of the Sea ★★★★½

Now that I have more mental energy I can dissect this a bit more. As I said, this was undoubtedly one of, if not THE most visually striking anime film I have seen. The only way I can describe the animation is INTENSE. As far as the story, I must admit I had no idea what was going on. It was similar to Mirror, other Tarkovsky work I had seen. It was all very pretty and poetic, but I truly could not tell you happened after we hit the hour mark, let alone once she was swallowed by the whale. It was one of the most stunning sequences I had ever seen though. Basically how I feel about the whole movie. The vibes were immaculate, and sometimes really unnerving, but what happened I do not know.
