Synopsis

Murakami made this movie in cooperation with Louis Vuitton, the handbag producer. It is more a commercial for Louis Vuitton than it is an anime movie, however the animation is quite special.

If only all designer commercials were like this. It hasn`t convinced me to blow a month`s pay on a Louis Vuitton bag, but it has given me 5 minutes of happy. The music video starts with a little girl texting away on her phone. A tie-dye bear appears in front of her, and before the poor girl can recover from the shock of seeing something so outlandish, it eats her phone. Then it eats her as well. The inside of the bear is an alternate dimension that looks something like a hippie`s imagination filtered through the taste of a pre-teen Japanese girl. The girl flies read more

Rating a commercial is fairly simple; how effective is the work promoting the brand? There are many ways to do, but most commercials fail in that aspect; they either try to pretend it's "hip" to use the promoted product or use trashy witless humor. Even the recent Super Bowl ads feel a bit bland and stale.

This commercial, on the other hand, is memorable, adorable, and visually trippy.

For those who don't have three sisters who shop like I do, Louis Vilton is a well-known designer brand that sells designer bags and other fashion accessories. The commercial is intended to attract teenage girls to the brand, so read more

What is it, what we got in that 5 minutes, we should spend with that anime?

Story: [7/10]

I think, when you see that it goes only 5 minutes, you will know that it has not much of a story but even in that short time, it manages to give you something that will satisfy you. It's nothing really amazing but it fulfilled his purpose to show us a fantastic world, where everything can be possible and nothing could be wrong. Nothing needs to be explained because it is just the fantasy what that little girl imagined and the viewer of this has just to sit comfortable read more

Superflat Monogram and Noiseman hide short but cohesive stories behind visuals that seem like the brainchildren of kids on acid; that is, they are both flamboyantly cute yet head-spinningly surreal. The music they employ is chaotic with samplings from nearly every imaginable musical instrument between them, but the masterful way they are integrated with the animation, kicking beats in right when things get exciting, makes these films feel like very polished music videos.
Besides being both directed by Hosoda, the world of OZ resembles the strange world of Superflat Monogram.
In both of these short anime, a girl is taken through a journey inside colourful and abstract fantasy world.

They have a similar feel to them, so if you like one, you will most likely enjoy the other as well.
Wow. I saw a recommendation for these two, so I wanted to see if it really looked alike, but it's almost exactly the same... It totally has the same feeling. It's about a little girl... who suddenly finds herself in a strange world... there are a lot of objects who suddenly are alive and turn into animal kind of things ( well okay stuffed toys and... hm... I have no idea what I should call the other one.) I can't explain it that well, but it is really alike. t has the same kind of music also and it is kind of cute.
Both are directed by Momoru Hosoda. They share similar animation styles and elements.
