About the Movie

The directorial debut from acclaimed artist Takashi Murakami, Jellyfish Eyes brings its creator’s endless imagination to the screen in a tale of family, friendship, and loyalty set in a world of fantasy that only Murakami could conjure. Having moved to the country with his mother following the death of his father, young Masashi (Takuto Sueoka) immediately makes a most unlikely friend: a flying, jellyfish-like sprite that he nicknames Kurage-bo. Taking Kurage-bo under his wing and into the classroom, Masashi soon discovers that his schoolmates have similar friends - and that they, their creators, and the town itself are not all they seem to be. Pointedly set in a post-Fukushima world, Murakami’s film carries a message of cooperation and hope while boasting unforgettable creature designs and handmade special effects nearly a decade in the making. A touching triumph of creativity and wonder, Jellyfish Eyes is a must-see for film lovers of all ages.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Whatever you might think of Mr. Murakami's paintings and sculptures, they are invariably polished and eerily perfect, but his movie seems thrown together. – Roberta Smith, New York Times, Jul 14, 2015

Rotten: [The] story [is] barely original or interesting enough to sustain a half hour of kids' TV. – Peter Debruge, Variety, Jul 15, 2015

Rotten: Though it may amuse hardcore devotees of kaiju film on video, the film hardly threatens to make Murakami the next Julian Schnabel. – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, Jul 15, 2015

Rotten: Watching unmemorable child protagonists repeatedly fight and bond with each other and a bunch of F.R.I.E.N.D.s, tacky-looking Pokemon-esque monsters, is unproductively exhausting. – Simon Abrams, Village Voice, Jul 14, 2015
