Mary and the Witch’s Flower 4K Review
I crazy love Japanese animation. Especially those rare full-length animated cartoons that were presented to us by Hayao Miyazaki, Makoto Shinkai … Learning that the director of the cartoon “Mary and the Witch’s Flower 4K” Hiromasa Yonebayashi is a disciple and follower of the legendary Hayao Miyazaki, while also creating the masterpiece “Memories of Marnie”, from viewing which I’m still under strong impression, I was looking forward to the show with anticipation. Although there were fears, fear of disappointment, fear that I was too adult for such an animation, I discarded them after a few minutes from the beginning of the cartoon. I really liked him. He immediately riveted his eyes with his detailed painting, bright colors. Exactly what their spectators were bribed by the creations of the studio Ghibli, the animators of the Ponoc studio also adopted. The world tries to seem alive, to surround the characters of the picture, creating an inexpressible sensation for the viewer.
Also for me a huge plus is the absence of eerie, flat jokes, which sometimes abound in modern animation, trying to simplify everything, in pursuit of a mass audience. But not infrequently killing a fairy tale, a miracle. “Mary and the Witch’s Flower 4K” is the same example when it comes out of the hands of animators that it tries to keep the children in their childhood and give them the right message.
The plot of “Mary and the Witch’s Flower Ultra HD” gently introduces the viewer into the world of the little girl Mary, shows her fears, aspirations. But you do not have time to enjoy the beauty of the world and peaceful peaceful life, when suddenly you find yourself in a fairy tale that even more captures you, adds dynamics, emotions. There is everything: friendship, dedication, aspiration, what any good fairy tale should teach children and what is sometimes worth remembering by many adults. However, I can assume that for some, a gradual introduction to the narrative may seem too long, which, again, we are accustomed to modern animation. All this is individual, and for those to whom it might seem so, I advise you to sit back in your chair and enjoy the lively, fervent nature of Maria’s non-attendance, which, I am sure, will soon conquer you.
For those who want to get a little good light mood or to please their children, I advise you to watch.
