Children Who Chase Lost Voices From Deep Below ★★★★☆

"any single frame could easily be removed and held-up as an accomplished piece of art"

Director Makoto Shinkai's previous effort 5 Centimetres Per Second (2007) is one of the most beautiful animes to ever grace the screen. Its tale of unrequited love told across three stages created a story more emotionally devastating than even the most assured romantic film. Children Who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below (2011) is a far more conventional anime film, recalling the fantasy and wonder of Studio Ghibli, yet still retains the same artistic flare which marked Shinkai as one of anime's most promising directors.
