First off, I admit I never saw the series of Clannad, so perhaps I would have been biased in watching this film if I would have seen the series, but I did not, so as I watched this film "Clannad", I was pleasantly surprised, I loved it! It was a movie that was completely unpredictable. I felt I knew which way this film was going but then it would go in different directions to where I never knew how the film would end, and I loved that about this Film.
Some really deep concepts about the beauty of life, dreams, soul mates, true love, and living your life(no matter what happens). Very deep film all around, I was very delighted with this film.
Also, I love Hayao Miyazaki films, but sometimes, as brilliant as they are, one gets tired of the constant theme that each of his films drive home about loving all creatures in life, loving mother earth, taking care of all living things, etc.(Of course, all great things we should do as people though). So it was nice to see a story that was different along the lines of this kind of animation.
Again, I love Hayao Miyazaki films, it was just nice and refreshing to see a different concept played out in an animation film like this.
I would recommend this film for all ages, as there is something for everyone in it. And who doesn't love the 3 lead characters in this one, they're so much fun to watch! I highly recommend watching this one.
