Patema Inverted

A film that will turn your world upside down

Patema Inverted

On DVD & Blu-Ray from Monday 1st Dec. 2014

Fast sell:

One of the freshest Sci-Fi anime in years, Patema Inverted literally turns its heroine's world upside down to produce an action­packed, gravity­defying adventure that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Yasuhiro Yoshiura's movie combines an innovative theme, spectacular set pieces and top notch art to create a sci­fi future classic you'll never forget. Just don't look down ...or do we mean up?

Key talent:

Patema - Yukiyo Fujii (Smile Precure!)
Age - Nobuhiko Okamoto (Ao no Exorcist)
Porta - Shintaro Ohata (Gundam AGE: Memory of Eden)
Elder - Shinya Fukumatsu (Paprika)
Lagos - Masayuki Kato (Space Brothers)
Izamura - Takaya Hash (Harry Potter series)

Synopsis:

The princess of a subterranean community, cheerful and inquisitive Patema loves investigating the mazelike tunnels and caverns of her homeland ­ especially the forbidden ‘danger zone’. While out exploring, however, Patema falls headlong into an impossibly deep pit ...only to find herself on the surface, mysteriously ‘falling’ upwards into the sky.

Saved by a teen boy named Age, Patema discovers that on this strange surface world, the floor has become her ceiling. Not only that but Age's country is a harsh, propaganda­ridden tyranny where people are forbidden to look upwards. With all underground dwellers seen as unholy sinners, Patema soon finds herself pursued by the secret police. Together with her new friend, she must uncover the dark conspiracy that lurks behind their two inverted worlds ­and live to tell the tale!

We like it because:

Patema Inverted is a movie with a literal twist ­ and the continually flipping perspectives never cease to be visually stunning! As well showing the world from Patema and Age's very different points of view, the clash of gravities leads to a slew of inventive action sequences. Add gorgeous visuals, likeable leads and an exciting storyline, and you've got a truly spectacular sci­fi adventure.

Hot Quotes:

"An assured and enjoyable piece of storytelling that looks great on the big screen." ­ SCREENDAILY.COM

"Patema's action sequences are a great reminder of the still­potent power of animation." ­ OTAKU USA MAGAZINE
