Watch Locally, Think Globally

Ice Floe

ABOUT THE FILM

Marine, an overweight young girl, suffers from the way other people look at her and from summer heat. She dreams of a better life among the penguins on an ice floe… This work surely conveys the message that we shouldn’t pay too much attention to what others may think of us. The final outcome awaiting a girl who is desperately trying to lose weight is truly absurd, but the viewer is left with feeling of wanting to delve further.

彼女が抱えたコンプレックスは、誰にも解らない。彼女だけのモノ。

天国で幸せになるよう、心より祈っております。 世の中の人が優しくしてあげたらと思いますけど。 ちなみに、痩せ型より太っているほうがかわいいと思いませんか?

The skinny children had cunning look, and fat girl had a pretty round eye. Skinny is not always beautiful. The ending was so sad, but she looked very happy at the end.

She looked happy because she was released from the mordern life, right?
