Therefore I enjoyed myself immensely while watching this film. The only problem was toward the end when self-discoveries were made I burst into tears. It literally made me emotional. Things took a drastic turn and the movie besides becoming a vehicle to tackle this great issue of social relationships and suicide, imparted a message. It is along these lines, all people are made up of colors. They are colorful. Basically the message meaning that say for example you have a cheating girlfriend. That cheating girlfriend could be a great daughter and support system to her mom. There is bad in people sure but then there are sides of them that we do not commonly see in day to day life that are worthy of praise. *Not that I am defending cheating in any way. Cheating is still a disgusting act by people. Going so far as cheating shows you don't care about hurting someone you love. Which to me is cruel behavior, something I cannot abide by.*
I was and still seriously am moved by this movie, Colorful. It tackled controversial issues of the social kind, imparted a message, and made you think about life. All of these things which I appreciate.
Language Watched: While I usually prefer watching anime in Japanese with English subtitles I made an exception with this movie since I was pretty tired when I watched it.
Voice Acting in English Dub: Amazing! While I had my issues with Josh Grelle voicing Gareki in the Karneval anime series, here, as Makoto Kobayashi he does a good job. His voice fit to the main character. Finally, there is another voice actor extremely worthy of mention and that is Luci Christian as Pura Pura.
Overall Experience: I cried! I think this is a sign that it was more than simply good. It has only happened with Titanic, Spirited Away, The Notebook, and a few other films where the story really draws you in, to that world.
