• Incredible attempt at the genre, reminiscent of the English "History of the Future Folk". Not sure if viewers are seeing dubbed or poorly translated copies, but I found the Japanese dialogue simple,powerful, and well executed with a perfect cast selection. I could sense the movie was taking a more humanistic tangent after the opening scene, yet was still floored when of all things, Religion - not war fated the fighting chance. It made me laugh, cry, and overall felt appropriate for 2 hour runtime.
