User Reviews

Less than the potential of Tezuka on Buddha.
22 November 2014 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

For a Manga Fan or an admirer of pioneer Japanese Animator Tezuka, this is a less than thrilling night at the movies. Tezuka's striking drawing style is rarely evoked - Compare his own SPACE FIRE BIRD or CLEOPATRA QUEEN of SEX and the handling is familiar Nip Toon.

It is curious to see the life of Buddha turning up as one of these and they do get into quite cerebral issues, like the failure of Asceticism.

Every so often the makers also manage a memorable image - walking across the rice paddies, the burning hut or the giant's masked face thrust through the prison window.

Middle of a multi-part production.
