Kazuo Yamazaki, director of Ninja Scroll, directed a delightful anime here. It's about a young man who's quest is to help the planet after it's been through a disaster. This disaster is a wind, which manages to erase most of the population's memory. This disables people from recognizing their loved ones, to being able to drive a car or work a microwave. Furthermore this movie is about our hero who meets many interesting people on his journey, including a mysterious beautiful tall woman, named Sophie.
Yamazaki's vision is true, as he directs a great, and well thought out drame. The consequences such a predicament would have on the world, are well thought out and well presented. However unlike a typical movie in it's genre, this one leaves us with a somewhat hopeful ending. The animation is on par with anything which was released during it's age, and the movie lasts a fantastic 80 minutes.
The sign of a great movie is, when the characters linger with you for days, after the end of the movie. These characters certainly stuck with me for a while, especially Sophie.
If you like thought provoking movies, which don't ask you to think, but watch and be amused, this is deifinitely for you. It seems very real, and I would recommend it whole heartedly, because despite it's premise... this movie is not depressing. ENJOY!
