Shinkai Makoto (director).

Commentary

Aesthetically and emotionally well below 5 Centimeters Per Second (2007). The story is poor SF. Its point of interest—what the Union is trying to do with its silly version of quantum physics—is unexplored. The alternate history aspects seem shallow, despite a basic plausibility.
