5 Centimetres Per Second Review | Capsule Computers

Luke Halliday writes:

"It is no secret that Makoto Shinkai is a special film-maker. He worked tirelessly for many years with small project like Voices of a Distant Star and She and Her Cat, it wasn’t until one fateful film that he would finally receive the recognition he truly deserved. That film is none other than the modern anime classic 5 Centimetres Per Second.

5 Centimetres Per Second is a short yet remarkable film that provokes both deep thought and emotion. This is about as tragically real as anime gets and Shinkai puts a spotlight on the painful distance that inevitable grows between us all. He has gone on to top himself with masterpieces like Children Who Chase Lost Voices, but 5 Centimetres Per Second was the film that laid the foundations for his future works. It is a brilliant film in every regard and one that is truly timeless."

Beautiful movie, but for me I enjoyed Place Promised in Our Early Days more. That resonated more with me whereas this seems geared towards relationships.
