Children of the Sea (2019)

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. … Director Ayumu Watanabe´s stunning adaptation of the prize-winning manga by Daisuke Igarashi.

Peter Debruge, Variety

Watch it on the biggest screen you can. From the play of light through water to the huge number of moving elements in each scene, the almost photo-realistic detail in many of the fish and the dazzling visual imagination at work elsewhere, it’s an astounding piece of work and one that will stay with you for a long time.
