Garden of Words is a short 45 minute film by Makoto Shinkai (5cm/Second, Voices of a distant star, Children who chase lost voices), similar to the rest of his other works, it is a visual masterpiece and contains a slow moving emotional story.
However, unlike the rest of his works, this film had me engaged the whole time, from the start of the film which draws you in with its incredible art, to the stunning climax at the end.
This is without a doubt, the best animated piece of work i’ve seen in a while, it has a great story, sexy visuals, amazing soundtrack, just… everything.
Grab the 1080p FLAC version if your computer can run it, the art really will blow you away.
This is a real masterpiece, and at 45 minutes there is little excuse to not watch it.
