I didn’t know about Tree of Palme until it was licensed by ADV. Many of the advertisements gave me the impression that Tree of Palme would be a serious and mature title, despite the childish looking character designs. After watching I was right for the most part, its just I could barely keep awake when watching.

The first thing I noticed and probably most people, was the animation. It is undeniable beautiful and very smooth. Backgrounds in particular were well done and quite nice to look at. I guess since this is a movie the animation is expected to be amazing. read more

This is one of the most underrated anime movies in all history.
One of unique kind. If you are expecting some nice story with happy ending just stop reading this.
It's one genre that stands out of all of the rest, it's Dystopian Sci-Fi anime. If you've watched Now and Then, Here and There or Gin'iro no Kami no Agito or Green Legend Ran or even Ergo Proxy and liked them, then you will definitely like this one, it's just plain brilliant, unique and unforgattable. I won't start explaining the story that mostly is so unique that you can't fully understand it without throughout thinking about it. read more

Story is not easy but it is deep and good.
Animations are lovely.
Sound is ok.

Not everyone will understand this movie and will say " i dont like it"

I really like this film very much.

This has got to be one of the most trippy, esoteric, surreal and all around bizarre things I have ever witnessed. You know how creepy and weird all the freaky dreams of giant oozing teddy bears that sing and destroy hospitals Tetsuo had in Akira? Imagine two hours of THAT being used to tell a Pinocchio "I want to become a real boy!" story, except the story is very confusing and Pinocchio is highly manic.

Watching the movie, you can see the underpinnings of what in concept would be a decent story, but Takashi Nakamura mangles it so much with bland characters, muddled storytelling, heaps of read more
