Excuse me, I'm Spanish and I don't usually write in English. If you want you can read my review in Spanish.

Kenji Miyazawa is one of the best known Japanese authors internationally. One of the reasons for his "relatively" recent prestige has to do with the adaptation of part of his works to anime. The first of them was Night on the Galactic Railroad (1985) thanks to the Group TAC study. But the period of greatest abundance was the 90s. This interest in the author materialized in animation with the medium-length film Spring and Chaos (1996), but also with the work reviewed: The Restaurant of Many read more

This wonderful film tells the story of man verses nature in it's most imaginative and primative state. Reminiscent of more European animation styles than Japanese, this anime had more of a pastel or artistic look to it, much like that of Hedgehog in the Fog, The Man Who Planted Trees or anything by Katou Kunio.

With nothing in the way of real dialog to assist us, this anime used incredible sound effects, music, and it's animation to convey the story and moods to the audience. I found this method to be more successful than if there had been dialog and was excited and spooked the whole read more

There was something missing to make the experience more satisfying, but is artistically sublime.

Based on a short story by Kenji Miyazawa, it tells a tale of two British hunters getting lost in the woods and discovers a strange restaurant. Mainly, it is a situation of Man vs. Nature or hunters becoming the hunted.

Like Angel’s Egg, this short doesn’t have any dialogue at all. I’ll admit that no dialogue did bother me a bit, but I was completely OK with that. Sometimes it takes more than dialogue to do any story right. Once again like Angel’s Egg, it has that eerie atmosphere but this time, it doesn’t give away that it’s haunted. Once you enter the restaurant, the realization read more
