Alukas’s review published on Letterboxd:
I heard really good things about this one beforehand, high expectations in other words.
I just finished the film a minute ago and what I can say is this: the film deals with the trickiest/hardest question of them all. In the end I actually believe that the film provided me with a beautiful answer, but cannot explain what that answer is, even though I feel it deep inside. When/after you achieve a goal in life you are still the same person.
PS. If I were to choose one part of the movie that I like, I would choose to take part of Joe’s ordinary life to a greater extent.
The ocean and the water quote is parafrasing D.F.W’s How’s the water-speech. I like it. Alot.
The animation and the voice actors are fantastically magnificent.
