At first I was slightly put off by the narration, thinking the film would be a bit more plot-driven. But I soon realized that the purpose of the narration was more to act as a guiding supplement to the images. It actually felt kind of Malick narration in an animated film (this would be pre-Thin Red Line Malick narration, not the more whispery stuff of his recent work).

Yes, that's right, Five Centimeters Per Second is anime Malick.

Haha, or as I said when I rewatched it for the top-100 stuff:

@FroHam: I dictated this to you...animated lens flare!
@Sam: You should watch this too...voice over narration and slow shots of nature!

Hum. We shall see. Seems the only way to get it in the US is to buy it.

I'd try to find the stream of it I had found before but you'd probably shun it anyway. I found it at the library the first time I watched it.

All I know is I downloaded it illegally, but I am now looking to buy it.

I could interlibrary loan it and see if I get anything.

Anime Malick! You must do whatever it takes, Sam!


Though, a word of warning, it's not that much like Malick.

Interesting how you focused on Brosnan, only gave a passing mention to Greg Kinnear, and ignored Hope Davis completely.
