User Reviews :
As close to pure cinema as they come
15 July 2016 | by Ayal Oren (Israel)
As far as I know this is the first time the illustrious Studio Ghibli has cooperated with a director outside Japan. Still they gave it their trade mark detailed approach to the depiction of nature, and since the whole story is about nature, and about human beings as a part of nature

it counts. What we get is a fable/fairy tale, about a

survivor-castaway getting to a deserted island with no human or other land in sight. And the surprising story of his life following that event. I don''t do spoilers, and almost anything I could add would be a spoiler. So I''ll limit myself to one more remark - the absence of dialogue works for this movie and in a way make this fantastic story more real. Words seem unnecessary as the story develops.

Though it''s animation, it''s not exactly made for children, but it could work very well for children viewing it. The auditorium in the Jerusalem Film Festival was packed with children and I didn''t hear a single complaint.
