Critic Reviews for Patema Inverted
"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.
An orphaned girl and a fatherless boy bridge opposing societies in "Patema Inverted," a delightful animated fable from Yasuhiro Yoshiura.
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.
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.
Impressive but not dazzling. Miyazaki would have given the action more thump and Kon might have gone that bit weirder.
Audience Reviews for Patema Inverted
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!!!!
