Movie Info

One of the most acclaimed films in Japanese anime, The Winds of Honneamise tells the story of a group of would-be astronauts on a planet that is not Earth -- but not unlike Earth. While an eager young pilot named Shilo dreams of making his nation's space program a success, his leaders are not sure of the project's viability, and shortages of money and technical know-how threaten to keep space flights on the ground. Will Shilo and his friends buck the odds and take their ship to other worlds? ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

It is these visions, and the narrative, which also has a strong religious subplot, that make the program so compelling, a work of fantasy that is designed to make you think and contemplate. The artwork is outstanding

Almost as if Ingmar Bergman decided to direct animated movies.

Great animation for the time and the steam-punk themed world is pretty cool, it's just a shame that the story is a dreary, long-winded, directionless slog. There's being poetic, and then there is just being plain pretentious.

Slow moving but always intriguing. I like that the characters are all depicted as being imperfect, yet in the end it's the voyage into space that gives them purpose.
