The film is a visual treat with a lot of imagination. However, as a whole, there are a lot of anime cliche tropes that end up in a naive optimistic message in the finale of the film. There is not much focus on the dramatic structure but more a need to exhibit more and more imaginative details about the world the film presents. What this work lacks is restraint.

"Hoshi O Ou Kodomo" is an animated movie from one my highly favorite director Makoto Shinkai and I can simply say "wow". This movie was definitely a very beautiful tale crafted with gorgeous animation and wonderful music. Here the settings is mostly a fantasy and it is about a journey to "Hell" (in fact, Agartha, the world below Earth) in order to revive the one you love. This movie has truly a very similar feeling than most of the Miyazaki's movie highlighting nature, the meaning of life, the struggle between our principals and its surrounding. Again a beautiful tale, maybe less strongful than "5cm Per Second" or "Hoshi No Koe" but maybe more eventful (less boring on some parts if you are more into action/progression in a story).
