ABOUT THE FILM

In midsummer, a girl finds a dead frog at a Shinto shrine. Just as she becomes fascinated with it, the frog's ghost appears before her. It doesn't bother her -- rather it merely becomes a part of her life, like the air and water. Although with some worries, she accepts the frog and carries on her life as usual. Japanesque rural scenery is beautifully utilized.

空間を演出する音楽がとても心地良いのと、ゆったりとした流れの中で、少年少女時代にしか味わえないような不思議な出来事がノスタルジーを感じさせる。蝉の鳴き声、梅雨の時期の蛙の合唱。音が効果的に夏という季節を幻想的に演出している。実写とアニメーションの融合も違和感がなく実写のフレーム内の構図にセンスを感じた。良い作品だと思います。

話の内容より、ビジュアルの方が不気味で怖い。
