Synopsis

A movie adaptation of the 1981 children's book Chikashitsu kara no Fushigi na Tabi.

A wonderful and mysterious birthday adventure, one that you will never forget. Beyond the basement door in Aunt Chi’s antique shop lies a world beyond your wildest imagination...

Akane Uesugi is a shy 6th grader who has trouble telling other people how she feels.

The day before her birthday, her mother, Midori, sends her on an errand: to go get her birthday present from her free-spirited Aunt Chi’s antique shop. But a strange man named Hippocrates the Alchemist, who calls her the "Green Goddess," together with Pipo the fairy, takes her on a journey to "The World Beyond" from a door in the basement.
There, the water has dried up and the trees are losing their color. Can she save it with the help of her free-spirited Aunt Chi, the stern Hippocrates, and his apprentice Pipo?

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS

Pros:
+Character and world design
+Captures magical Ghibli inspired feel
+Environmental message

Cons:
-Propaganda for the privileged (although probably unintentional)
-Poorly written villain

Thoughts:
The immediately obvious selling point of this film is its visuals. The characters and world are captivating. They bring out a similar spark to Ghibli films. Throughout the film, the characters travel across this breathtaking "wonderland", and boy is it gorgeous. However, the world is losing its color due to drought. In order to save it, the main character must go and rescue the prince who can perform a ritual to bring back the rain. They make a point to differentiate this world from Earth, which read more

This movie makes me very conflicted, I want to like this movie, and I do, but there's no doubt in my mind that there's a lot of flaws holding it back.

Overall: 6

TLDR: Did this movie make me laugh? Definitely, and fairly often, actually. Did it make me roll my eyes? Quite often on that count as well, haha. But most importantly, did I enjoy my movie going experience? I would say yes, and I think I can recommend it without too many reservations.

Character: 7

I want to begin with this category because it definitely feels like the writers wanted this film to be a character driven read more

I love Ilya Kuvshinov's artwork, which was what interested me into viewing Birthday Wonderland because his style was prevalent throughout the film. However, in the end, his beautiful art style couldn't save this boring and predictable film.

The story itself, for me, felt lacking. Events that have happened, for me, felt like they came out of nowhere because it's cause and effect felt deficient. Not only that, specific scenes in this film were unnecessary and either contributed nothing or information dump that made me yawn or want to do something else while the characters were talking at their dinner table (BORING.)

However, the parallel world the characters read more
