Once You've Met Someone You Never Really Forget Them. It Just Takes A While For Your Memories To Return.

I heard this movie before. In my concept, everybody has watched this movie in their childhood except me. I have no idea about this cartoon movie at all. It was top100 in Douban and IMDB website which interested me and I want to have a look waiting untill a joyful and lesisure time.

If You Completely Forget Your Name, You'll Never Find Your Way Home.

I thought it can purify my soul after watching it and everybody highly praised this movie. I begin watching it with high expectation, but honestly, I felt it’s a little creepy and so many characters without further plot development. I was disappointed once.

Just go back the way you came, you'll be fine. But you have to promise not to look back.

Then, following my regular rountine, I saw some movie reviews on the Internet and I was surprised that they got totally the different feeling from mine. Some critics recognized multiple characters as a projection of people in reality, however I hava no resonance at all.

Once you meet someone, you never really forget them. It just takes a while for your memory to come back to you.

It’s not the first time that I have distinct opinion about something from that on Internet. I used to add movies which has high ranking on the IMDB while I never do that again now. Everybody has diverse experience, value and judgement, we should not be affected by such conventional thinking but insisting our views on.

Something you wouldn’t recognize. It’s called love.

So I believe I have not acquired enough stories, experience enough emotions, see enough people with various personality leading the the fact that I can’t feel sympathetic witht the characters in the movie, with the people around me. I hope one day when I rewatched it, I will be able to find something new, something moving, something also existing deep in my heart.
