a film by Makoto Shinkai

Ah, if only the authors of this beautiful anime constrained themselves with the “early days” of the English title. Two boys fascinated with building a plane, dreaming of flying “to the other side” to see the mysterious tower and falling in love with their schoolmate during Summer holidays. What could be better?

Instead, the story “develops” into complete nonsense. Or maybe I missed something. I guess it did not help that this DVD has English subtitles somewhat conflicting with English dub. (For instance, the voice says “Sayuri”, the subtitles go “Sawatari”. It took me a while to realise that this refers to the same person named “Sayuri Sawatari”.)
