Children of the Sea

A young girl and her supernaturally gifted friends go on a magical adventure under the sea in this anime adaptation of Daisuke Igarashi’s manga.

"When Ruka is suspended from her school handball team, she decides to visit her father, who works at an aquarium. She soon meets and befriends Umi, a boy who seems at one with the ocean and has the ability to communicate with sea creatures. She also meets his older brother, the sickly and haughty Sora. Together they notice a song of the sea that's luring all types of sea creatures away from their natural habitats. And Ruka discovers that her affinity with the sea is far greater than she imagined." (Sydney Film Festival)

Full of interesting concepts and accomplished animation, Children Of The Sea is less than the sum of its many parts and just seems to lose its way after a very promising beginning.

A lonely 14-year-old connects with two boys raised at sea in a gorgeous, sensitive anime movie that takes a wild out-of-this-world turn.

It leaves you with the sense that the art form's boundaries have been nudged a little wider as you watched.
