Movie Info

When Ruka was younger, she saw a ghost in the water at the aquarium where her dad works. Now she feels drawn toward the aquarium and the two mysterious boys she meets there, Umi and Sora. They were raised by dugongs and hear the same strange calls from the sea as she does. Ruka's dad and the other adults who work at the aquarium are only distantly aware of what the children are experiencing as they get caught up in the mystery of the worldwide disappearance of the oceans' fish.

  • It leaves you with the sense that the art form's boundaries have been nudged a little wider as you watched.

  • A lonely 14-year-old connects with two boys raised at sea in a gorgeous, sensitive anime movie that takes a wild out-of-this-world turn.

  • It's an astounding piece of work and one that will stay with you for a long time.

  • If you want a visually stunning animated poem that culminated with the brainchild of Terrence Malick's "History of the Universe" sequence from Tree of Life and "The Third Impact" from The End of Evangelion, you will love this wild ride of a movie.

    Dec 1, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…
  • Full of interesting concepts and accomplished animation, Children Of The Sea is less than the sum of its many parts and just seems to lose its way after a very promising beginning.
