Rating: 4.5 -- 'Fantasy' often conjures visions of a Tolkien-esque mix of dragons, elves, quests and big blokes with axes, but Japanese writer-director Mari Okada's animated epic has done something impressively new with the genre. Full Review

At almost two hours, the film feels a bit long and suffers from multiple endings, but Okada is clearly a talent to watch. Full Review

Product Description:

Japanese writer-director Mari Okada's animated high fantasy film is a poignant exploration of the trials of motherhood. In a magical medieval world, a young girl from a tribe endowed with extreme longevity finds herself in enemy territory. She decides to raise an orphaned baby boy on her own, but her genetic inheritance (she no longer ages) creates unique challenges to their relationship over time.
