The pacing is rather slow and relaxed, and even though there’s also lots of explosions, they seem surreal like everything else in this movie. The atmosphere is slightly depressing, yet very engrossing, in part due to the incredible score by Kenji Kawaii. Even if you happen to not like the movie as a whole, it’s worth watching at least once just for the music.
Here’s a short teaser that gives some quick impressions.
Avalon – Teaser
I recommend watching Avalon in its original language, Polish, because the unfamiliar speech helps transport you into Ash’s reality, just like the music and subdued visuals do.
