Joelle Davidovich Pomponette, better known as simply "Pompo," is an extremely talented movie producer, having inherited her grandfather's connections and cinematic eye. Despite her promising outlook, Pompo refuses to produce anything other than trashy B-movies. That is, until she hands her assistant, Gene Fini, a script for an ambitious screenplay about the life of a composer and announces that he has earned his first directorial credit.

Determined to make the film shine, Gene throws himself completely into his work. However, with an overwhelming workload and a deadline only days away, the aspiring director struggles with what must be sacrificed in the name of creation.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Eiga Daisuki Pompo-san was set to premiere in 2020, but was delayed to March 19, 2021, due to undisclosed circumstances. The release date was then postponed to June 4, 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The film was nominated for an Annie Award for Best Indie Feature in the 49th Annual Annie Awards.

Eiga Daisuki Pompo-san aka "A movie on how to make a movie!". It's a love letter to all the classic filmmakers.

At the very end of the year, I got my "Anime Movie of the Year". Its visuals are so beautiful that you just want to stare at them. In this ninety-minute movie, so much energy, so many ideas, so much food for thought, and emotions have been packed in that I was honestly surprised. The characters are as vivid as they are realistic. There are also some great dialogues.

The story is about the journey of making a life dream come true. The message of the ...

Mixed Feelings
Eiga Daisuki Ponpon-san does not belittle hard work as some shows do. There are makes valid arguments as to why the main characters is qualified to occupy his position, and he works hard to get there.

The movie also doesn't shy away from subtly exposing Hollywood flaws. (While simultaneously being blind to others) The art direction and transitions are fantastic.

This is where the benefits of the show start to run short. Many characters are forced into pointlessness due to clumsy introduction and follow through, and this problem inflates and affects the main beats of the story itself. These flaws are not egregious but make the show ...

I don't wanna sound rude, but this film is exactly the same quality as Pompo's films lol

It feels like the entire movie was made for portraying an irony

The story is so shallow, the characters are so bland even the Pompo herself, and i couldn't find what's so interesting about this movie other than the visualization, just like Pompo's films.

Visual wise, they're good but not that great, the animation, the design, and the colors in this movie. I really love the transitions they use. I love how they try to put movie-like effects in an animation which is kinda tricky, but they made it work.
That makes ...
