Place Promised in Our Early Days, The


Japan 2004, 90 minutes
Dir. Makoto Shinkai
Rating: [M]
Genres: Science Fiction / Anime


Aroview: Evocative and measured anime, which bases its sci-fi storyline around a future Japan divided by civil war into two islands separated by sea.

Three children growing up on one island ponder a lofty tower they can see far in the distance and plan to build a flying machine to investigate it. Years later, they resume this pledge as war again breaks out... Mature in tone and supported by lovingly animated imagery, the maker of VOICES OF A DISTANT STAR here fulfils his potential.
