Synopsis

A failed DNA experiment with plants has changed the world forever. Having demolished the moon, the intelligent and aggressive plant-life has spread to the earth and destroyed the human civilization. The few humans that remain struggle to survive, while maintaining an uneasy truce with the restless forest. One day, a villager named Agito stumbles across a stasis unit hidden deep in the forest and awakens a very cute girl from the past. Having slept for the past 300 years, Tula steps into a very different and strange world. The neighboring high-tech village of Ragna is still locked in a bitter war with the forest and when they become aware of Tula, they realize that she is the key to activating her father's final and ultimate weapon of humanity—a weapon designed to totally destroy the forest. When Tula is taken by the warriors of Ragna, Agito makes a pact with the forest to gain the strength and incredible powers to not only save her, but to stop the weapon from destroying both the forest and his village.

Like some bastard child of Akira and Princess Mononoke, Origin is one of the strangest movies I've seen in a while...

STORY - Origin's (I'm going with the English title because it's easier) central theme is the age old man versus nature. What I found particularly interesting though, is the semi-lack of advanced technology and the steampunk-like environment of the movie's present day, even if the conflict was initially caused by the usual advanced bio-experimentation we're all used to. Further intriguing is the fact that the audience is not automatically expected to side with nature in this movie (as is usually the case); because the people read more

This review tries hard to not spoil anything, but you might probably want to postpone reading everything after the introductory paragraph to not get any wrong impressions.

The introductory paragraph goes here. After reading the synopsys, you would probably think this movie was something for Studio Ghibli to create. And the truth is, it's not only obviously inspired by Miyazaki's [early] works, it feels more like the creators were moved by Castle in the Sky, Nausicaa, and Princess Mononoke so much they tried their best to recreate their story and some of the characters here. Which was a decision that both made the movie as good read more

Recommendations

Both deal with the relationship between nature and humans. The OSTs are wonderful. The scenes of fight are very well done (even if Gin'iro no Kami no Agito is futuriste and Mononoke happens in the past).

They have nicely similar story lines... "man devastates the earth and the forest comes back with a vengeance."

They both have good dramatic action. I personally liked Nausicaa more but the main character in that was a girl so i relate better with her than the male main character in Agito. Still Agito was a great movie with better art and graphics than the older Nausicaa. It was definitely one of the better movies i have seen lately. So if you enjoyed either of these movies, be sure to check out the other.
