I loved this film, but I don’t want to spoil anything regarding the story, so I’ll keep the review short and I will let the images speak for themselves!
Overview: The story takes place in the spirit world. On the day of her 16th birthday, a spirit girl is sent to the human world and has an unfortunate accident. She spends the rest of the movie dealing with the consequences of that accident. It reminds me of a great Ghibli film. It’s full of spectacular animation and intriguing characters.
Review: The vivid animation makes the spirit world feel vast and complex. The story deals with the themes of responsibility, sacrifice and love. Some people complain that the characters and plot are confusing, but I think it all made sense to me. There’s a grandiose finale and a post-credit scene, not to be missed. The music is great too!
Verdict: A must-see film for animation fans and a game-changer for Chinese animation.
