A gorgeous, evocative film that really captures that vague sense of longing for something in a forgotten dream.
Wondrous and dramatic, fun and romantic, the film rides out its effective and well-paced narrative enjoyably. Excellently animated, with effective grace notes for things like gendered body language.
The film’s exploration of how distance interacts with love, how empathy can change a person, its dreamlike look at how abruptly narratives can collide, it all works well, and looks consistently gorgeous. A lovely world to dip into for two hours. Three and a half comets, and an old phone.
