I had no idea that a banker’s job is to help make peoples dreams come true. Thanks movie. Seriously though, still really good. Flew by.
Absolutely fantastic. Great animation along with really well developed characters and themes. Nearly cried a few times. It’s so refreshing to see a new take like this on such an old (and quite frankly overtold) story, and Del Toro knocked it out of the park in my opinion.
I am still in shock and awe with this film. With no sound or spoken dialogue, this still manages to be one of the most beautiful and moving films I’ve ever seen. This film is constantly on my mind and continues to be one of my personal favorites. I will always cherish it.
What can I say other than ‘beautiful’? Absolutely breathtaking, gorgeous, and poetic. One of my favorite endings of all time, it’s just executed perfectly. Made me nearly tear up multiple times, but reflecting on the entire film as I’m writing this has finally made me do that. I don’t think I’m gonna be able to get this one out of my mind anytime soon.
What a ride. While it definitely felt its length, I can’t say that that’s a bad thing. It definitely needed to be that long, and it payed off. Such a great story, with a fantastic beginning and end section. The middle part I found myself becoming a bit confused at times, but I was tired while watching it, so that could have something to do with it. Even then, the film was really captivating, and there’s so many scenes throughout…
That was honestly way sadder than I expected. I mean, I knew what the film was gonna get into, but damn. Very well done film with great characters and cinematography. I also absolutely love the contrast in lighting throughout the film, definitely one of the best aspects about it. Also, the use of trees as metaphors for the girls’ internal suffering is excellent. Not a bad film at all. I didn’t love it, but I can still say I enjoyed it and think it’s well made.
