In the new Korean animation feature Beauty Water, Kyung Hun Cho signs a gripping and poignant story about the seek for beauty and its aftermath.

An engrossing autobiographical family drama, with an eye towards adults, even though it details a young girl's story in Taiwan. Review for  Hsin-Yin Sung' film, On Happiness Road.

The latest feature film by Summer Wars director Mamoru Hosoda is a gentle family comedy of manners, which really takes off at the film's final reels.

A feature film about kids and dogs, without ordinary kids and dogs.

The 1915 disastrous Gallipoli campaign becomes an animated 3D/2D documentary, produced entirely in New Zealand.

Yeon Sang-ho's third feature is no less fierce and violent as his The King of Pigs and The Fake efforts, and wholeheartedly artistic at the same time.

The latest offering from Studio Ghibli is sweet and good-natured, but it doesn't match its previous achievements.

Yeon Sangho becomes with his sophomore feature (after the equally blistering King of Pigs) one of the masters of contemporary adult animation.
