Flavors of Youth

Aug 6, 2018

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!
