THE SUMMIT OF THE GODS (Theatrical Release France 2021)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì 

The Summit of the Gods—French/Japanese anime—initially seems unclear about the purpose of its production. But the storyline and presentation soon supersede this situation because there is a certain captivation that works very well to keep the audience involved to the point that one almost forgets one is watching an anime rather than a live action film. The acting, voicing, and animation are fabulous. The bitter/sweet conclusion is the final touch that makes the movie worthy of adding to the home video library.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. This is very well done, tells an unusual story so well that one almost forgets it is an anime. Great work for Director Patrick Imbert.
