You can not argue with an anime that has such beautiful imagination. It reads like an Arthur C. Clarke story, earth's first encounter with alien, and its impact economically, sociologically etc. Like his novels, its a subtle thriller, never revealing too much too soon and always leaving more questions than answers.
To complain about its animation is as shallow as complaining about 2001:space oddysey's special effects. This is an anime that will stimulate the introvert. Those with a vivid imagination will lose themselves in this fantasy. The imagery is is beautiful to me, the sunny blue-green landscapes, cold deserted cities, long stares into the night sky, and the soothing loneliness (an escape from modern chaos)
If you have ever enjoyed any of the following
the imagination of the matrix,
Rendevouz with Rama novel by Arthur C clarke
The world of the Fallout (PC game) series
You will love this anime as much as I did.
Although I wish they had made this into a series, and prevented the abrupt ending that inevitably occurred... squeezing the future of mankind in a 90min screening!

Needless to say, this anime isn't for everyone. Some may not understand the story, as it tends to jump around and the plot seems mixed up. However, the concept behind the story is fairly interesting. A wind that makes the world forget everything they ever knew, but the show jumps around so much, it seems to take them a while to actually tell you about it. The art style is nice, the animation solid and fluid. I haven't listen to the English Dub, so I won't comment on it.
If you don't mind thinking through your anime, you should be fine. The show may move around a lot, but overall it isn't too bad.

Okay,I have to say this an okay movie.It just talks about a man named Wataru and he meets a girl named Sophia and then they travel around the country trying to pick up people who lost their memories and Wataru is willing to teach them things.Then Wataru finds out who caused the wind of Amnesia and blah blah blah.Most of the movie is about other people they meet then it talks about Wataru and Sophia.There's a lot of nudity though so I dont reccomend it for kids.Also,if this movie was drawna bit better then I would have given it five stars.I dont know why but I cant stand old anime.

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!

I'm pretty sure people who just started watching Jap. anime are WAAAY too facinated with the subculture and overwhelmed by the quality and quantity of animation that are viewd by those who grow up watching Looney Toons, Mickey Mouse, and Transformers.
For those of you (above), anime like "A Wind Named Amnesia" will BLOW u away (like most of reviewers here). But if you grow up watching Japanese animation, you'll notice this movie is just OK, nothing here that will "BLOW YOU AWAY". Animation quality is sub-par along with matching musical score, but the story is bit original- "like it - didn't love it."
For story info: read the ediorial review.
I'll recommend this DVD for those who are soooooooooooooo facinated by Jap. Anime and think everything from Japan is "WOW.. BEST EVER!!! OMG!! SUPERB!!"
for others, its entertaining, original, and worth a look..

I will start by stating that when I got this movie I wasn't expecting it to be the greatest, but it was much better than I thought it would be. Still others like Akira and Ghost in the Shell are better, but this one ranks pretty close to them. The story involves two caracters traveling across the United States in an attempt to "re-teach" everyone. Why? A strange wind that they call "amnesia" went across the whole world clearing everyones memory, but not like normal amnesia. This wind took away everything! The ability to speak, to think, and all the other basics. It reduced the whole world to barbaric people. Rather than rely on big guns and explosions, this movie uses a complex and great storyline to keep you entralled. If you like anime that make you think, you'll like this...........
