About the Movie
Two high school boys grapple with their own humanity in a world where people are serviced by androids distinguished from their masters only by the halo-like rings above their heads. Public mores, enforced by the shadowy Robot Ethics Committee, dictate that androids be treated like appliances, and those who empathize with their robots are branded as "android-holics." Rikuo and his childhood pal Masaki find their assumptions about androids radically challenged when they come across Time of EVE, a cafe where androids and people are treated as equals. Liberated from the strictures of the Ethics Committee, Masaki and Rikuo must confront old wounds of betrayal and grief, and are faced with decisions that put their friendship and families on the line. Official selection at the Pusan International Film Festival 2011, New York International Children's Film Festival 2011, and Japan Media Arts Festival 2010.
It has a confusing story to it.
It is really good to see that I can buy this movie from iTunes store, and I think this is the best way for fans of the movie to buy it in US. The image and music of this animation are really great, and also I really like the content of it, it makes me feel a lot of warm! It will be better if you can provide the option of buying HD movie.
There are some errors in the subtitles, such as an extra 'b' appears in it. And also, the subtitle is always on, it cannot be turned off. But in general, the subtitle is good enough. I like to see these movies with the original Japanese audio so it is really good to see that the subtitles are provided. This is really a great movie, I wish I can buy some other good Japan anime movies in iTunes store in the future.
The animation was good but in a way that tried to look a lot like a normal film, shot with different lenses and zooming out and in, and panning. A little bit frustrating that it was hard to follow, the subtitles were a bit fast in some instances and there were some mistakes. The story is easy to get into, but difficult to follow, not told in an easy to understand way. It was mainly about how Japanese treat people who are different. I didn’t enjoy the film very much.
