Synopsis

663114 is a short but hard-hitting monologue of a 66-year-old cicada. The insect draws parallels between the catastrophes of Hiroshima and Fukushima and poses a fundamental question about the future of our planet.

66 is the number of years since Hiroshima and Nagasaki were destroyed by Little Boy and Fat Man. 3/11 is the date of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and following disastrous tsunami. 4 is the number of reactors emitting radiation from the Fukushima Daichii plant.

663114 is a short independent animation from director Isamu Hirabayashi that questions the fundamental condition of being in, living in, and understanding Japan. The cryptic title is a combination of important data whose relevance make up the content of 663114. 66 is the number of years since Hiroshima and Nagasaki were destroyed by Little Boy and Fat Man. 3/11 the date of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and following hard-upon tsunami. 4, the number of reactors emitting radiation from the Fukushima Daichii plant.

The simple animation follows a very old cicada climbing a tree to complete its shedding of carapace, natural cyclical reproduction, and thus complete its read more

Reading the synopsis made me think this was made by a pretentious douche. Watching it confirmed that I am the most correct person on the planet.

663114 is about a cicada that climbs up a tree for forever and talks about how awesome it is to live in places that weren’t nuked. Then a bunch of pollution/influence of man metaphor hands grab at him and our cicada protagonist reminds the audience that Japan’s birth rate is falling so hurry up and have some damn kids. Also the child of the cicada ends up all mutated because Fukushima or whatever that plant’s called.

While this could be considered an art film, which is a plus or a con depending on each person, the concept is strong enough to be understood without a lengthy explanation or previous knowlege. If anything knowing too much takes away from the enjoyment. Beyond the concept the sound design is really strong and complements it much more than the animation. I doubt just anyone could do this in Premiere but it's a long shot from the sakuga some people expect in anime. Whether its simplicity makes it feel special or a wasted opportunity is up to you.

For its length it's a really read more

Story
An artistic expression/representation on a particular event cycle of disaster in japan. While that is a welcoming approach it was not told my the narration or the art. Only partially. If you wanted the full story behind this incest art you would have to do some research. By reading blogs and so forth. For me having a picture so to speak (Anime) for a story (natural disaster in 2011) and not fully citing or referring to the event is pointless. Yes, the anime did hit at the fact but it was too complex. Not very insightful with their hints. Much like read more
