5 Centimetres Per Second

Image

I just watched 5 Centimetres per Second and god is that a stunning film. Each and every frame feels like artwork, not only because it looks beautiful but also because every scene seems to have meaning and a comment to make. The use of light is particularly amazing.

My main critique is probably the plot. Maybe this makes me a robot but I just can’t really empathise with all the angst. The characters also feel somewhat limited, can you really imagine anyone in the film laughing? or finding joy in something? The happiest state any of them are ever in is ‘content tranquility’. Then again, that could be a culture barrier issue.
