Feb 13, 2019
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

Rating: 3/4 -- Despite being set in a Lord of the Rings-ish fantasy world, the core themes of loss, aging, and motherhood have real-world emotional resonance. Full Review

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
Time Out
Jun 28, 2018
Mari Okada directs and pens a film that revolves around three concepts that intertwine and combine to a rather unique presentation: Love, time and memory. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- If the film is a bit frustrating on the storytelling front, it makes up for it with some staggeringly beautiful imagery. Full Review
Alternate Ending
Aug 29, 2018
We don't even notice how deep Okada has driven her storytelling dagger until she pulls it out in the end, and the tears come, adding, to the bitterness and sweetness of this moving and strange little fable, a hefty dose of salt. 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.
