Koji Masunari’s colorfully explosive film sets a new bar for visual spectacle and inventive character design, with some of cinema's most gleefully surreal depictions of alien life. It seems like another lazy summer is in store for Amane and her cousin Natsuki, until one day they stumble across an injured dog. They soon discover that Pochi is no dog at all: he's an alien botanist sent to Earth to track down a rare and powerful plant. Before long, Pochi whisks the kids to a space colony on the dark side of the moon, and from there the plot twists come as fast and furious as the film's glorious barrage of color, resulting in a movie that is infinitely rewatchable.
