  • "Patema Inverted" mines a lot of entertainment value and social allegory from a pretty great concept despite being held back from greatness by a clunky narrative.

    August 29, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • An orphaned girl and a fatherless boy bridge opposing societies in "Patema Inverted," a delightful animated fable from Yasuhiro Yoshiura.

    August 28, 2014 | Full Review…
  • The film by Yasuhiro Yoshiura suffers from many of the same flaws as other anime features - a plodding pace, broad humor, a bland heroine and snarly, one-dimensional villains.

    August 27, 2014 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Yoshiura keeps the story fairly linear, while playing with perspective and composing many stunning, vertiginous images that consider the different possibilities of being at war with gravity.

  • Spirited Away perhaps not, but we're transported to an intriguing world nonetheless.

  • The sky is quite literally the limit in this very strong anime set in an upside-down bizarro-world.

Audience Reviews for Patema Inverted

  • Aug 13, 2014
    This very inventive, heart warming and exciting sci-fi anime film really brings out some original handling on a familiar premise. Centered around two individuals from two different worlds whose gravity is reversed/inverted, coming to understand each other and authorities willing to fight off their existence. There's a truly genuine sense of anime here with some very real emotions and a truly engaging plot, even with a touch of Philip K Dick. Highly recommended to the most enthusiastic viewers, Madman can you please distribute this film!!!!
