  • THE WINGS OF HONNEAMISE, one of the best animated films ever made (it won three separate best animated picture prizes in 1987), is an epic tale set in an alternate universe, somewhat similar to our own. In it, human civilization is on the verge of travelling into space, though no one is taking any real serious steps to get there, and The Royal Space Force is no exception. More a government publicity stunt than a viable space program, its recruits are often ridiculed and demeaned by both the public and the government. However, when one recruit, Shiro Lhadatt, meets a young woman who encourages him to kick-start the program, he organizes a haphazard team of scientists and pilots who race to be the first into space.

    "...Great-looking....A boldly sketched vision of the future in a realistic style..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "...A visually sensational two-hour extravaganza....One of the pleasures of the film is simply enjoying Yamaga's visual imagination..."
