  1. Jordan Kaltz's rating of the film The Boy and The Beast

    this was stressful I left the cinema after 40mins!!

  2. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film The Boy and The Beast

    I think this movie's flaws are perfectly understandable when put into the context that this is a director without prior scripting experience stepping into a role he isn't used to. Even so, this movie is astonishingly confused and counter-intuitive. Supporting your children emotionally confuses their sense of identity? Berating and neglecting children leaves them emotionally well-adjusted? And Hosoda's a parent?

  3. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film The Boy and The Beast

    Altra bella opera di Hosoda,che non arriva ai picchi emozionali quasi irragiungibili di Wolf Children,ma che colpisce nel segno per quanto riguarda lacrimoni e gropponi in gola. Un processo di crescita molto originale,che attraverso la diversità e la mostruosità porta a compimento la formazione di un essere umano. La messa in scena della città animata è bellissima,cosi come il dinamismo dei combattimenti:bello bello.

  4. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film The Boy and The Beast

    I like the part that takes place in the real world, because that's what most like the things I like about Hosuda, or what I think Hosuda is actually good at if you want to frame it in a less emotional manner. But that's a very small part of the film; it flails and has no real structure to the story and the animation is far too cartoony. I like the idea of the story but the exectution is lacking.

  5. pomegranate's rating of the film The Boy and The Beast

    Ernest from "Ernest and Celestine'' gone bad

  6. Ruben Leite's rating of the film The Boy and The Beast

    A not-so original premise that is delivered with an enticing, marvelous twist. Sweet atmosphere, great characters, beautiful art direction, what's not to love about this movie!

  7. dhani's rating of the film The Boy and The Beast

    I got a new pickup line: "I want to be a sword in your heart" <3

  9. msmichel's rating of the film The Boy and The Beast

    Mamoru Hosoda (Wolf Children, Summer Wars) moves a little closer to the mainstream with this warm hand-drawn gem that pales to his two previous pictures but still manages to entertain. The passing of time is warmly captured before the film's final act winds up as somewhat derivative despite its' 'Moby Dick' influence. Well worth a watch.

  10. swordofdoom's rating of the film The Boy and The Beast

    Not in the same league as his best work, Summer Wars (masterpiece) and Wolf Children.

  11. Star Lord's rating of the film The Boy and The Beast

    Nella mia top 5 del genere.

  12. glitchedplant's rating of the film The Boy and The Beast

  13. Rocketeam's rating of the film The Boy and The Beast

    With Miyazaki threatening to retire, we look towards Mamoru Hosoda to keep that magical tradition going.

  14. Nicole Danielle's rating of the film The Boy and The Beast

    Beautifully animated with an interesting plot that kept me watching.

  15. T-Cruise's rating of the film The Boy and The Beast

  16. Enrico Gaudenzi's rating of the film The Boy and The Beast

    Bella storia di formazione, con qualche caduta e tanto buonismo

  17. At0msk's rating of the film The Boy and The Beast

    contradicciones de la herencia

  18. Eric Ortiz García's rating of the film The Boy and The Beast

  19. Henrique Amud's rating of the film The Boy and The Beast

    Hosada is usually one of the most entertaining and emotionally honest japanese storytellers out there and he always delivers on the thrills and the feels, but what the fuck was that third act?? it almost ruined a pretty good film.

  20. Louis Léonard's rating of the film The Boy and The Beast

  21. Stefano De Putti's rating of the film The Boy and The Beast

    forse un po' troppo smielato in alcune parti

  22. Fabio Di Felice's rating of the film The Boy and The Beast

    Non è bello come Wolf Children ma è comunque una storia che merita assolutamente la visione. Dal punto di vista artistico è bellissimo e la storia sa come colpirti dritto al cuore; in un paio di momenti è capace di lasciarti a tanto così dalle lacrime, col groppo in gola che non vuole andarsene.

  23. patchwork's rating of the film The Boy and The Beast

    Hosoda si conferma un ricercatore di storie non banali ed anche in questo caso l'originalità dell'assunto è uno dei punti di forza. Rimane però anche il suo difetto, ovvero una difficoltà relativa alla compattezza del tutto: la narrazione, che comunque ha i suoi bei momenti (il viaggio dai vari maestri su tutti), ha dei momenti di stanca, non aiutato in questo dall'eccessiva durata. Nel complesso un'altra bella prova
