Synopsis

In 2019, following an uprising in the USA and a subsequent global nuclear war, humanity was decimated by a catastrophe called "The Maelström." A half-century after this cataclysmic event—to preserve humankind—the World Health Organization (WHO) has progressively assimilated worldwide political power and completely redefined society: people are now considered public resources and are guaranteed a happier life. The heightened development of medicine, nanomachine technology, and augmented reality promote this greater devotion to human health.

Suffocated by the excessive kindness of Japanese society, high school student Miach Mihie decides to oppose the societal values she considers dehumanizing before the health implant surveillance system WatchMe activates itself the day she turns 18. Miach plans to kill herself with two of her friends, Tuan Kirie and Cian Reikadou. However, Cian betrays the pact in disagreement with Miach's intentions, allowing Tuan to survive her suicide attempt, unlike Miach, who is declared dead.

Thirteen years later, now a high-ranking inspector of Helix—an organization affiliated with WHO to monitor military conflicts—Tuan is sent back to Japan after her drug smuggling activities in the Niger warzone are discovered by senior Helix inspector Oscar Stauffenberg. On her first day back to the country she tried running away from, thousands of people simultaneously commit suicide. Tuan is now in charge of investigating this wave of mass suicide and exposing the terrorist organization behind the unprecedented attack.

Quickly said Harmony is a pretty boring movie about a person traveling around the world, being infodumped by every character she meets while trying to solve a case she's working on.
There's lots of philosophical themes in the movie, many of which go nowhere and aren't really explored beyond talking about them.
It's great material if you're an over thinker and actual like sitting on your ass for two hours while boring characters read textbooks to you.
Note that the rest of the review can contain spoilers.

Okay, here we go. Hmm, there will be minor spoilers, but I think it won't hurt anyone who haven't watched it (most of it are already in the synopsis).

Story (8/10)
I have to admit that Harmony give us an interesting concept of a futuristic world. In Harmony, humans has advanced to the level that they have defeated disease and aging. A system called 'Watch Me' also guide humans to have a perfect healthy life and follow the social ethics (well, you'll see more feature of this system by watching the movie). The only minus of this 'Watch Me' is your life can be watched by the read more

"Day by day the world becomes a healthier, safer, more beautiful and wholesome place"

I honestly don’t know how to even start this. Harmony is the second in a series of [unrelated] films based on the works of Japanese science-fiction writer, Satoshi Itoh (Also known as Project Itoh). This particular piece hones in on the life of Tuan Kirie several years after she attempts suicide alongside two of her friends, Miach and Cian. Harmony is set in a world ruled by technology — where nanomachines are implanted in children at birth in order to “preserve” their lives under the pretenses of health and safety. Miach is read more

I'll be honest: The things which drew me straight away to this show were the Music (Egoist), the crystal-clear Art, and the outstanding Characters.

|Some shallow spoilers, not for the light-of-light-hearted|

As a spiritual person, I delighted in the fact that the story revolved around consciousness. On one end was the vigorous yet timid Tuan Kirie, and on the other was the beautiful, smart Miach Mihie. It wasn't clear who the bad guys were, and who the good guys were until the very end. The only plot that we could hang onto, was the time when both Tuan and Miach were together. Miach would sing and dance, read more
