The Sky Crawlers is based on a popular six-part novel by a best-selling writer, MORI Hiroshi. The novel has sold more than 900,000 copies in Japan alone. The story unfolds in another possible ‘now.’ The main characters are youngsters called “Kildren”, who are destined to live eternally in their adolescence, and fight a “war as a show” organized and operated by adults.
My humble opinion is this masterpiece must to be watched. 3D scenes are far beyond Hollywood productions.
