Jun-Dai:
The animation style is pretty weak for a Ghibli film. From the very beginning the film resonates with an unearned emotional significance, which quickly becomes quite tiring. The story makes about as much sense as a Wagner opera, which fits in pretty well with the confusing motivations, bizarre pauses, unexplained happenings, and odd character behaviour.

Probably the only thing I really liked about the film was Cob’s castle, which felt very much like an abandoned castle ruin.

It bears no real resemblance to the Earthsea I remember reading, but that was a pretty long time ago.

  1. I agree – this film was severely lackluster in comparison to his others. When will you write another review? I enjoyed reading these, as I learned about a few films that I haven’t yet seen.
