Voices From a Distant Star
Just watched this short anime film that the ex would never let me see when we were dating. Not recommended if you are getting over a breakup. The plot is that two star crossed lovers are seperated at age 15 when the girl goes on a space mission, with their only means of communication being text messages sent by cell phone. As the movie progresses, their distance increases. It takes at first months for messages to reach her lover, than years. To make matters worse - they have to deal with time dilation, for the girl is forever 15, yet the boy ages. Truly a sad story. My interpretation is that the boy signs up for a similiar mission in the end, for the hope of being reunited with his loved one. Not sure if the girl survives, as the end seemed ambiguous to me.
