Members’ comments: Good choice again – I loved the music! Truly beautiful. A++ Colours I’ve never seen. Amazing – an Engineer as the hero! A brilliant film and amazing animation: a touching story of love and dedication: thank you for a very worthwhile choice. Exceeded expectations. Wonderful! Beautifully crafted – not sure if animation is suitable for adults. A refreshingly enjoyable film: a good story line, well presented with a touch of poignancy. The animation was a nice change, but the film didn’t really grab me. Nice to have a film about Engineers, even if it was a comic strip. Enjoyable, very different to anything I would normally see – thank you. Marvellous animation and a very informative film. A delightful film with amazing and superb animation and a good story, too. A beautiful film. Excellent – bitter sweet. Very unusual but wonderful. A subtle and charming confection sugar coating a highly contentious nationalistic recasting of history. Apart from the characters looking like dolls, a delightful yet interesting lesson in Japanese history and culture. Very charming, a little obscure in parts but beautifully crafted. Not my cup of ceremonial tea! Some films try and shy away from such topics - of war and its nature – this film did it superbly with a lovely soundtrack and colourscape. Beautiful images – surprisingly with challenging meanings – loved the slow pace. The animation was brilliant. I liked it very much – good story, beautifully animated: I don’t know why anyone should object to it as it had an anti-war view, perhaps a little long, though. I kept feeling I was watching a children’s film. Great concept and wonderful drawings – could have done with a good edit – to lose about 30 minutes. Charming, beautiful, really enjoyable. Unusual, wonderful animation: a quiet film, literally, not too loud: I enjoyed it. Completely different pace and sensibilities to any western film – interesting. Lyrical and sensitively portrayed – perhaps animation has a future! Superb – the animation was incredible! Interesting story and period, bit long, charmingly told. Beautifully drawn but dragged for me. Worthy but dull and overlong and kitschy – despite interesting subject matter – a disappointment. Great animation and enjoyable aircraft with love story. Fantastic animation: brilliant story: very enjoyable. Brilliant and thought-provoking too. Captivating film – a real visual feast for the eyes – beautifully sad. Good story as in the animation – impeccable, but story told too slowly and rather twee. A relaxing film to view; uncomfortable viewing as far too hot in auditorium. Most enjoyable – very poignant in places – film went at a good pace – could happily watch it again. Fascinating – despite cultural differences between both countries. Great film – superb detail. Good story – but I wouldn’t say I liked the way it was told. Poignant irony of the beautiful engineering for a killing machine! A sad, thought-provoking little tale: beautifully created; slightly over long. Refreshing after last week! A bit of everything: interesting: a bit long.
