Review: Patema Inverted

Hold on tight ......

Hold on tight ……


It’s a topsy-turvy world for Patema.  She’s an Invert – her gravity has been reversed – living underground following a catastrophic accident.  But she’s desperate to reach the upper world and, when she does, she meets a teenage boy, Age.  Trouble is, he’s the other way up – as is everything else.

Patema Inverted isn’t the most inspiring title for a film, but that shouldn’t put you off.  New kid on the anime block, 34 year old Yasuhiro Yoshiura, has produced a beautiful piece of animation that is aimed mainly at the young adult market, but is deserving of a wider audience.

My full review is on,


Patema Inverted opens around the UK on Friday, 2 May.
