ABOUT THE FILM

Two fairies Kate and Echo reside in the fantasy world, but when one of them stumbles into the real world, their friendship faces a serious challenge. This very original piece will surely indulge you in a world full of pop colors and eccentric musicals while depicting the confusion about love experienced by young girls. Love is no simple matter even to fairies... Girls bravo!

ミュージカル映画の歴史に残る傑作だと思います。まだまだミュージカル映画にも可能性が多々あるのでは、と思わせ、またミュージカルらしく、音楽に限らず全体の音響設計も凝っていて聞き応えがありました。

画面構成、色彩はキレイだけど、私は何か伝わってくるものが好きだから、この作品はあまり好きではない。でも、ミュージカル風で新しい試みとしては評価できると思う。
