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

Its deliberately paced, meandering storyline demands extraordinary patience.

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.

Audience Reviews for Ôritsu uchûgun Oneamisu no tsubasa (Royal Space Force - Wings of Honneamise)

½

Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honnêamise is a solid, yet disappointing film that has absolutely terrific, groundbreaking animation with an impressive attention to detail, a splendid sound design and score and the mix of science fiction and drama is very intriguing, but the characters needed better development, the second half is pretty dull and the film never achieved greatness in the storytelling department.

Gotta love an anime movie about trying to get to space. The main voiced by the narrator of Bartender. It was a great one.

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.
