  • Despite being set in a Lord of the Rings-ish fantasy world, the core themes of loss, aging, and motherhood have real-world emotional resonance.

  • We don't even notice how deep Okada has driven her storytelling dagger until she pulls it out in the end, and the tears come, adding, to the bitterness and sweetness of this moving and strange little fable, a hefty dose of salt.

  • This eerie and affecting feature debut from writer-director Mari Okada blends fantasy and coming-of-age stories.

  • At almost two hours, the film feels a bit long and suffers from multiple endings, but Okada is clearly a talent to watch.

  • The visuals outshine the story events in Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms.

    June 28, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • 'Fantasy' often conjures visions of a Tolkien-esque mix of dragons, elves, quests and big blokes with axes, but Japanese writer-director Mari Okada's animated epic has done something impressively new with the genre.
