The series centers on Joelle Davidovich Pomponette (Pompo-san), a talented film producer at the movie capital "Nyallywood." Despite her prowess to see through to the potential of actors and staff and bring out their talent to the fullest, she has only been producing B-class action and erotic films. One day, Pompo's "film-worm" assistant Gene, who has been doubtful of her choices of film genres, is given the task to direct a film based on a script written by her. Will Gene be able to bring Pompo's "masterpiece" to fruition?

I was fortunate enough to watch a screening of this at the Anime NYC convention in November, months before the public release. It was part of a double billing along with Belle, the latest film by Mamoru Hosoda, whom you might know from Wolf Children. While Belle packed the auditorium and received far more hype in the form of its own booth and advertisements all throughout the convention, Pompo felt like the actual masterpiece.

From the very beginning of the movie, the cinematography stunned me. Compared to most other anime, the world of Nyallywood seemed very much alive, colorful, and dynamic. Every scene transition was read more

Pompo the Cinephile is a tight 90 minute package that builds upon its straightforward story with a ton of aesthetic flair. While it excels in its humor, voice acting and music, the visual style is what propels this movie to greatness.

There's an abundance of stylistic decisions that stand out throughout the movie. Pompo the Cinephile borrows elements from film which give it a playful charm most anime don't have, and its use of smoothly edited transitions for eye candy keep the pace of the movie brisk.

Another notable aspect of Pompo the Cinephile are the clever ways it represents the filmmaking process. For example, editing is read more

Pompo: The Cinéphile is a 90-minute show about striving in the movie industry, filled with a great proportion balance between comedy and drama, as well as giving audiences a glimpse of how the movie industry and the filmmaking process works.

Pompo: The Cinéphile asks what the gap is between a fun, wacky B-movie and a serious, critical masterpiece. Gene Fini, aspiring director, must realize what a master leaves behind to leap over that gap.

Pompo: The Cinéphile isn't a masterpiece. But it's charming, fast-paced, and in my eyes, a great film. It's aware that reasonable chunks of character development, several really beautiful cinematic shots, and good-looking characters, keep the audience at the edge of their seat without getting fatigued by the length of a masterpiece. Whenever Gene sees a fantastic scene, we as the audience can't help but agree.
