Why the film is so exciting may lie less in the fantastic moments than in the “Beauty of the ordinary“, as our Moviepilot editor-in-chief Jenny Jecke wrote at the Berlinale:

Make more of an impression inconspicuous, warm images, which accompany Suzume’s journey. Drunk older people grinning at each other over sake and music. Curious, beaming toddlers discovering that the chair in their midst can talk. A young, incredibly beautiful man on a summer day.

Despite the constant threat, Losing everything through the disasters is what the film is about full of humor and reminds us of the ordinary people who need to be saved. That is the strength of the film and, together with the impressive images, makes it so touching.
