Departing from his past sci-fi works, 5cm is set on earth, and in city landscapes that are unfamiliar only in their extreme beauty. Average sights like telephone poles and empty streets become the evocative backdrop to narratives of love and disappointment. Subtitled "A chain of short stories about their distance", Shinkai creates sheer poetry out of the tiny but infinite gap between dream and reality. They don't call him the "next Miyazaki" for nothing.
