“Bell” – Dentsu
The beauty of the world of the animated movie Belle can only be matched by the amazing realism of the characters. How did the animated version of “Beauty and the Beast” and “Ready Player One” combine to create a nuanced, moving and resonant coming-of-age drama?Suzu, her troubled teenage girl A story that gained fame in another online world “U”. Directed by Academy Award-nominated Mamoru Hosoda, this animated feature film is reminiscent of Hayao Miyazaki’s tender-hearted My Neighbor Totoro as a story about coping with grief through escapism. And finally, ameliorate real-world difficulties.
As a teenager, Suzu is dealing with the tragic death of her mother. Her mother drowned and saved another girl in a river. After this terrible accident, we see the first examples of suffering under the opinion of others. Many have directly discussed online how a mother abandoned her child to save a stranger, and other unsolicited online hot takes are very real. You have an excellent understanding of life’s strengths and limitations.
The character’s interiority is as beautiful as the film’s most memorable sets: the detailed fantasias of the Beast’s Castle, the lovingly realized teens’ bedrooms, and the sprawling outdoor meadows. important to the film. Above all, literally, magnificent clouds in the sky. The first thing that strikes me about “Belle” is that it’s fun to watch. The real world is gorgeous and vivid, and the world of “U” is amazing.
With the death of her mother, Suzu lost her love for music. But when her best friend Hiro persuades her to join “U”, an online community that scans your true identity and allows for endless customization, she is reborn as Belle and becomes a musical sensation. Hiding Suzu’s identity and other high-concept concerns amidst the debate over Bell’s promotion is the real and recognizable friendship between the girls. Nice and relatable, but the real world writing was what clicked for me. This movie is more serious than it looks when you see the pink-haired Belle in the promo.
Belle takes the ‘U’ music scene by storm, and her fame and notoriety only increases when she is attacked by a mysterious ‘U’ vigilante group known as the Beast. Belle eventually tracks the Beast to a castle, but before Teapot and Candelabra begin inviting her as a guest, the story goes deeper and with emotional resonance. They try to reveal their true identities to each other or themselves, and Belle’s discovery of the Beast’s true identity gives it another meaning.
The teenage drama fits right in with Beauty and the Beast, delivering a delicate and satisfying resolution. I also haven’t seen the movie “Mirai” which was released, but it’s on my list now. You don’t have to be an avid anime fan to understand that “Belle” is a special film, insightful into personal themes and larger cultural issues.
In the virtual world ‘U’, avatars of themselves are generated based on real people, giving filmmakers plenty of room to explore their characters. Suzu and her friends are well-recognized young people, and their extraordinary experiences illuminate human emotions through truly beautiful animation, in a realistic and fantastical artistic style.
“Belle” is available for rent now.
