A movie with a good production value: Toei did an excellent job with the animation witch is colorful, fluid and at time detailled. The orchestral score fit the movie (minus the awful songs wich could from a Disney). However, storywise it's another thing. Under the pretense of greek mythlogy is more a religous almost propaganda that had very little to do with the original myth. It's a positive an well intentionend message but it kill the drive of the plot let alone the dramatic impact. I've had nothing against spiritual anime. But we're millions miles from masterpiece like Haibane Renmei in that case....
