Memories in a bowl of steaming noodles, a fading beauty finding her way and a bittersweet first love -- all in these stories of city life in China.
Flavors of youth tells three different stories of youth set in different cities of China and the film takes you on three contemplative and fascinating stories around past and lost youth.The animation/art is really good and I really liked the chinese vibes of the story. BUT I wonder if there is any better topic of choice besides modeling and fashion when it comes to stories about women. This is why my favorite story is the first one. It's the shortest, yet the most fascinating. some simple things bring to many people so much joy, it keeps you happy and humble just watching. BUT from CoMix Wave Films (Your name, 5 centimeters per seconds, The garden of words) collaboration with Netflix, I was expecting much more. The three stories don't connect, there are 3 short films, and meanwhile their author/maker are very talented, I can't help wonder and now what? Thanks for reading, follow me for more!
I felt that this anime had a lot of potential for growth and to explore the hidden depths and emotions of the characters...except it didn't I was just very dissapointed with this movie.
(SPOILER) It was a good watch for me. I really liked the first story where it was very relaxing that it made me hungry. I like how it was a simple story not too dramatic 'cause The story is about a boy having nostalgia while eating the noodles, I think it was the second, if I would rate it out of all the three stories in this movie. The second story was about siblings having problems and it was good, but it did not had quite the effect on me but the story and the lines of the characters was good. It would be the last story I liked out of all the three. The last one was really good the story was amazing, I loved how they communicate through video tapes (I'm not sure if that's what you call it) it was really amazing, like if only I could experience those things, and how the boy got so focused on just studying to prove something, that if only he listened to that fudging tape. Well it was my favorite out of all the three sotries I think.
