Synopsis

Ginko is a traveller in a magic world full of creatures known as 'mushi', or insects. But those are insects of a different kind than we know: they merge with the deep flow of creation like ocean waves in the sea, and live in dimensions past us. Ginko travels a semimedieval Japan, helping people understand mushi.

Recommendations

The two films are really great, both show a wonderful scenery of nature from two different aspects. Although the plots are not similar at all, I think you may like those two somewhat slowly moving films.

Movie is much more weaker than anime, even though there are Jo Odagiri in it.

I liked it, I think Joe is good as Ginko! ^^

Odagiri is really bad as Ginko. He has no depth and no charisma. :-(
He didn't have the wisdom needed.

Fortunately, the rest was good.

I enjoyed it a lot, it seemed actually a lot better than the anime version, seemed more suspenseful and mysterious. But I wouldn't say that the actings were outstanding, this was solely the work of the script and the intense mis-en-scene. Even if they'd use middle class actors this would have still been good because it didn't focus on the actors but more on the story. Odagiri Joe sucks as Ginko, in my opinion. Since more then half of Ginko's face is covered anyway the facial expressions were not as notable and thus lost importance, but somehow his expressions seemed lame in spite of that, so it was all about the voice tone and the aura, and Odagiri Joe failed at that immensely, making himself look more ridiculous than anything else. There was not an inch of Ginko in his portrayal of the role. While this did bother me a bit, the other aspects of the film were great enough to make forget me about the sloppy Ginko. I think that's also partially thanks to the actresses who played Nui, the voices made it super magical and suspenseful.

Joo acts awesome... and the movie was made greatly. I mean, it wasn't too realistic, but not too imaginary.
