世界の終わりから (Sekai no owari kara)
Japan | 2023 | 135' | Kaz I Kiriya | ITO Aoi, MAIGUMA Katsuya, ASAHINA Aya, NATSUKI Mari
Hana (ITO Aoi), a high school girl with no immediate family and little to her name, is deep in the depths of despair when she is approached by a man claiming to be a member of a special government agency, who asks a bewildered Hana to tell him about her dreams.
Though Hana is unable to recall anything of note during the man’s visit, that night, she dreams of a young girl in a Sengoku-era (late fifteenth- to sixteenth-century) world, and of a woman who tells Hana that her dreams can rewrite destinies. Soon enough, Hana is caught up in the middle of a huge effort to save the world from its imminent end…
Directed by Kaz I Kiriya, known for his work on the English-language action film Last Knights, From the End of the World brings to the screen an apocalyptic time-travelling experience, blending the effective use of CGI with overwhelmingly human performances from its cast.
