You know here at The Peoples Movies, we love animation and Anime too. Later this month Manga UK will be releasing the beautifully animated Chinese epic Big Fish & Begonia.
Twelve years in the making, Xuan Liang‘s anime feature is a visually stunning cinematic adventure that captures the unique aesthetics, mystique and rich cultural traditions of ancient China.
Manga UK has sent us a new clip which showcases the opening minutes of this gorgeous animation…
In a world within our world, yet unseen by any human, the beings there control time and tide and the changing of the seasons. On the day Chun turns sixteen, she is transformed into a dolphin to explore the human world. She is rescued from a vortex by a human boy at the cost of his own life. Chun is so moved by the boy’s kindness and courage that she decides to give him life again. But to do this, she must protect the boy’s soul, a tiny fish, and nurture it to grow. Through adventure and sacrifice, love grows, yet now she must release him back to the sea, back to life in the human world.
Last month, Manga UK released the UK Trailer which slipped right past us (Apologies for that). Like the opening minutes, the clip above this visually beautiful promo sells the film perfectly.
Big Fish & Begonia will screen in selected cinemas across the UK and Ireland on Wednesday 18th April.Showcase Cinemas will show the film at Bluewater, Cardiff, Coventry, Derby, Dudley, Glasgow, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Manchester, Nottingham, Paisley, Peterborough, Southampton, Teesside, Walsall.
