Synopsis

In near-future Japan, Aya Okamura lives alone in an apartment away from her parents. Her mother has worked overseas ever since her childhood, so her aging father Kouji and their cat Mii-san are the only ones left in their family home. After a tiring day, Aya declines her father's invitation for dinner by lying that she is still at work. Yet that very night, she receives another call with sudden news that may bring this separated family closer.

"An ounce of blood is worth more than a pound of friendship."

There have probably been cases in all of our lives in which we took our families for granted. When I look back on my life I realize I was a selfish, greedy kid. Growing up in a suburb of the United States will make you that way. You want to fit in with the 'now' and want to be socially acceptable so you aren't judged by others. I've bought material things to impress people I don't know, shown off the newest fashion or technology to friends to feel an ounce of vanity, and gone read more

7 minutes. It doesn’t ask for any more of your precious time. Amidst all the troubles in life, if you decide and manage to invest that amount of time in watching this ultra short film, what you get is something that will undoubtedly stay with you for a long time.

Dareka no Manazashi awes with its simplicity. It portrays a certain phase of human life, i.e., the growing up phase and the changes that come along with it in one’s life, that almost every person experiences. It is about how we tend to put up facades in public just for the sake of presenting ourselves as read more

Every director has the same main goal: touch the emotions of the audience. I wouldn´t say that there aren´t many who can actually achieve this, but there are definetly very few who can pull it off in less than seven minutes. 6 minutes and 40 seconds of screentime is all that Makoto Shinkai needs to tell the bittersweet story that is Dareka no Manazashi.

In this little story about family values, it is impressive how Shinkai manages to use the seven minutes he has here... we learn just enough about the characters and their background to care about them, making the film quite read more

The animation in this short film is really magnificent, the music while subtle is quite enjoyable however the sotry is very poor; with a superfitial overview of the characters it tells the story of a woman who is able to connect again with her stranged father. I believe it is totally woth to watch it just for the art but don't expect much from the story.
