Note: Forgive me if I miss some parts or forgot to mention something. I saw it on premiere in an animation festival, so I can't rewatch it.

Je t'aime is a fairly enjoyable short, but don't expect groundbreaking story mechanics of any sorts.

The concept is relatively simple. Situated in a ghost town, there resides a dog that's aching for contact with another living entitiy. This is very obvious: the dog roams the streets without other living soul, and just wanders around with no purpose. These particular scenes would also show off how refined the backgrounds are.

What I love about this movie is the stark contrast between read more

Found this one on Youtube. I don't know where it can be seen otherwise.

All in all, it's an ovni in anime world. The story here is really simple. It is about a lonely dog who desperately wants to find someone to play ball with. You see him wander thoughout a desterted Tokyo, and there are hints that something terrible has happened not so long ago. Probably an idea of the end of the world.

His day by day wanderings, on a music by Glay, leads him to meet some automated android, which purpose is unknow.

Even though it's rather simple, it looks more like something you could read more

genre: this is scifi but more art/music video.

Anime shows are very powerful. Although i personally watch happy films. Sadly, this one is a sad one. A mutt's travel through life with no friends. It really was heart breaking. The beginning and ending is never really explained. I will assume that for what ever reason human life could not function in that town and had to go. Animals like the dog and birds could so stayed. But that ending... was the robot their to help? was he or she there to monitor?

i think the idea of a bomb threat was what the director read more

Misleading synopsis.

Je T' aime begins mysteriously enough, with a beautiful piano soundtrack and desolate, melancholic feeling perhaps. And then it just loses me completely.

Obnoxious musical stings and heavy soundtrack that do not belong in this story kick in and we encounter a humanoid. And, a contrived, silly message with it. (Probably.)

Why was it done this way??

You had a phenomenal premise, you could've done so much with it! A lonely dog's point of view after the rapture or apocalypse. Painting strong feelings of despair, fragility and cruelness of nature. And what's been brought upon with time...


This one's a skip...

...Honestly it's no wonder I have heard ABSOLUTELY read more

Mamoru Oshii's Return to Anime!

The director of Ghost in the Shell hasn't directed an anime movie in eight years, but somehow Adult Swim has managed to coax him out of animation retirement for a "micro-series" next year. Let's take a look at his history as a director, and what we can expect from the return of a master.
