Suzu is a shy, everyday high school student living in a rural village. For years, she has only been a shadow of herself. But when she enters "U", a massive virtual world, she escapes into her online persona as Belle, a gorgeous and globally-beloved singer. One day, her concert is interrupted by a monstrous creature chased by vigilantes. As their hunt escalates, Suzu embarks on an emotional and epic quest to uncover the identity of this mysterious "beast" and to discover her true self in a world where you can be anyone.

Audience Reviews for Belle

  • Feb 07, 2022
    A beautiful looking film that shows off 3D-to-2D animation, great soundtrack and also boasts sincere moving themes. Yet all these things can't really hold together this disjointed story chalk full of uninspired Anime High School tropes and other nonsensical elements. It's hard to feel immersed in a narrative when so many things don't make any sense. From straying romantic subplots, giant digital "hidden" castles with AI helpers exclusive to a simple teenage boy, a lawless metaverse where people can go anywhere and "hurt" anyone, being able to call people from a live stream without them needing to accept, letting a teenage girl/your friend travel across the country alone to confront an angry full grown man about his suspected child abuse… I can go on. Belle feels like it needed another month to cook in the writer's room if not at least a simple logic check.
