100 Word Review – Patema Inverted (2013)

Winner of the best anime at Edinburgh’s Anime film festival, this film is an absolute delight. 

Patema lives with her family in a series of tunnels deep underground. Exploring deeper and deeper she finds herself in  danger of falling off the world, in a place full of people for whom gravity is inverted.

The visuals in this film are breathtaking and Yasuhiro Yoshiura does a wonderful job of directing what could otherwise be a very confused feature.

Currently only available in Japanese, so not suitable for young children, but it’s definitely a great family film and a beautiful Sci Fi.
