About this movie

From acclaimed director Mamoru Hosoda (Wolf Children) comes a daringly original story of love passed down through generations. When four-year-old Kun meets his new baby sister, his world is turned upside down. Named Mirai (meaning "future"), the baby quickly wins the hearts of Kun's entire family. Kun becomes increasingly jealous of her, until one day he storms off into the garden, where he encounters strange guests from the past and future – including his sister Mirai, as a teenager. Together, Kun and Mirai go on a journey through time and space, uncovering their family’s incredible story, in this magical and emotionally soaring adventure about the ties that bring families together and make us who we are.

This moving was really boring and I fell asleep. IMO they got the wrong Japanese voice actor for the kid and every time he talked you go through this mental confusion where your eyes see a 3 year old but hears a 20 year old. As a result, I had trouble getting immersed into movie. There were some artistic scenes that were interesting but apart from that it was one of the biggest dissapointments.

My over all problem with this movie is there is a lot of components to a great story in this movie, but the ordering of scenes and inconsistent rules to the world ruin it for me. The build up to the end feels like it comes from out of nowhere/ isn't justified. If the tree was "explained" or had consistent "Triggering" I feel like it would have made the story hold together better. Personally I think that this story would have made more sense if the main character was the Sister or the Boy was older and able to critically reflect on the things going on. Just felt confused and not satisfying. There were multiple instances of things being referenced that never paid off.

Pensé que era agradable tbh. La animación es sólida, la historia es saludable y es entretenida. Sin embargo, lo vi en Netflix sin el doblaje en inglés. Mi única queja es que la historia tarda un poco en comenzar. Los primeros 10 minutos más o menos no tienen sentido.
