I just finished watching this. To quote Christy:

Quote:
scenery porn everywhere
Like literally wow. It was gorgeous, and the story was good enough. Let me let you into the world which I just saw >:V



BAHAHA I'M NOT SPOILING YOU GUYS

But yeah. My body, my heart. Too pretty, I'll probably watch this again like 2 more times this month. It's only 45 minutes and it's so ****ing gorgeous that I definitely don't feel like I lost out here.

Not going to lie. I cried.

I didn't expect much from reading the synopsis. I expected that it would just be pretty and have no substance at all. But I was completely wrong.

It was like a Ghibli film for me. Beautiful and very well executed, especially for it's limited time (being that it's only 46 minutes long.)

The angles in the film were so good. It felt like a live action sometimes during the intense scenes. They were varied in what they showed and the fact that some were moving and some were static. Another great thing they did, was add angles to the same scene as they went on. So the more we learnt about the characters and the overall plot the more we learnt about the scene and everything around it.


That brings me on the next point I want to talk about. The visuals. You could mute the movie and know exactly what was going on, be amazed by how it looks and still relate to the characters and have their story resonate with you. It was like P.A Works and Ghibli had a child and it just grew up making beautiful animated movies




The changes of perspective are very cool. We start off entirely from Akizuki's view (par that one scene where we we view the conversion between his parents.) It just develops as they change the perspectives, just like how they added the angles.

The development of the story during that 46 minutes was so good with all those features just baked together in the cake that was 'The Garden of Words'.


One last thing I'd like to touch on was that phrase they used through the movie. 'Walking in my own shoes'. It was so clever. I didn't believe that a running sub-theme of shoes was going to work but it did.

(Sorry if it sounds like a review of sorts, first time doing a discussion thing on the site, pretty much just joined :c)

^ you can post whatever you want!! It doesn't matter if it sounds review-esque *_<

__________

The story was pretty solid, it wasn't anything that moved the masses, but I enjoyed the romance very much, even if it was very fleeting and bittersweet. In stark contrast, the ART was amazing. It speaks for itself. It wasn't until halfway through the movie that I figured out that it was such a short movie lol.

I really enjoyed the fact that the story portrayed realistic elements of society, especially pointing out the forbidden teacher x student relationship, as well as the rare, but definitely true occurrence of adult bullying. The reason why people often associate bullying with children is because it gets more attention, but I liked that they shed some light on adult bullying. What those high school kids did were so mean!! Screw the haters girl, we can pee on their clothes and eat their families later ok.

I fell in love with the theme of rain. I personally LOVE when it rains and I felt really comfy when watching the movie. Additionally, rain in the movie didn't just symbolize loneliness, but also new beginnings and growth. The garden where the main couple would meet up at also evoked fond memories. If any of you ever get a chance, do visit at least one botanical garden in your lifetime.

Takao is such a cutie pie. He can ogle my feet however he wants as along as I get free shoes omg. Too bad his brother is such an ass. I was a bit sad that Yukino wasn't able to receive her pair of custom made shoes in the end, but Takao's goal of bettering himself to be a man worthy of Yukino in their future meetings made up for it.

Overall good movie, 8/10

Would you watch a sequel if it was made?

Me personally, I probably would since I hate sad endings or open ones. But also because I want to see those shoes again ;o;

But mainly I'd like to see how they progressed as people in the time that they were away from each other, regardless or not if they got together. They tried very hard to become what they want to be in order to be together so I think with that time away from each other where they progressed as people and characters, it would be nice to see the sort of 'end product' if I can use that phrase.

It would be nice to see that bully girl getting slapped again.

I'm not sure. I mean yeah, people generally tend to want a fairytale ending, but I think the movie ended pretty well. I think forcing a happy ending would just clash with Shinkai Makoto's style. Ghibli films are known to end on a happy-ish ending(most of them), but I think his style sets him apart from other film makers. You can't always be grim-dark or generic sunshine you know? So, I think his nestling in between those two genres work well. In my opinion, a sequel wouldn't do too well because the story/plot isn't something that can be stretched out into another 45-1hr+ work.

I'd rather have a brand new movie with juicy art instead though!

Yeah Ghibli do have those happy endings. But it's either happy or it makes you cry forever like in Grave of the Fireflies.

I can't wait for the next movie by these guys.
