YesAsia Editorial Description

A seamless blend of real live actors and computer generated special effects are on display in Akiyama Takahiro's Hinokio, a story about one lonely boy and his desire to reach out and connect with humanity, albeit with a futuristic twist!

Fearful and unable to leave his house since his mother's untimely death, a heartbroken, emotionally devastated twelve year old named Satoru (Kanata Hongo) withdraws himself from all contact with the outside world. However, this situation changes slightly when a technological marvel is built for him, a state-of-the-art robot nicknamed Hinokio! With the help of his robot doppelganger, Satoru is able to take the first tentative steps to reconnecting with the world around him, sending Hinokio to grade school in his stead.

During this daring experiment, Satoru is able to befriend a tomboy named Jun (Tabe Mikano) with the help of his robotic stand-in. But even if he connects with Jun, is he still not alone, isolated in his bedroom? Soon enough, this relationship impels Satoru to attempt to experience the world in a more direct manner, but not by coming out of the house. Instead, he activates the robot's "sensations," a decision that puts young Takashi in mortal jeopardy.

Back home, there is also the strained relationship between father and son for Takashi to deal with. Satoru's dad Kaoru (Masatoshi Nakamura) tries his best to reach out to his son, but Satoru still blames him for his mother's death. Thus, communication between the two is sparse at best. Yet through the vehicle of Hinokio, the two may finally have a chance at reconciliation. Will Satoru trade all his newfound virtual relationships for real ones or will he remain petrified with fear? Featuring appearances by Kobayashi Ryoko and Horikita Maki, Hinokio is a poignant film that asks the hard questions about what it really means to be alive.

The disc includes a making-of featurette, trailers, TV spots, and for the first pressing only, a Hinokio keyholder.

사람과 사람의 연결을 그린 순수한 러브스토리로서의 감동까지 안겨준다
아톰, 철인 28호, 키트… 이번엔 '히노키오'다!
온 가족이 따듯한 가슴으로 볼 수 있는 영화 [현대판 피노키오의 학교 적응기]
현실과 환상 사이 [히노키오]는 안노 히데야키의 [신세기 에반게리온]과 비슷한 정서와 주제의식을 공유하고 있다

[바이센터니얼 맨] [A.I]를 잇는 새로운 감동이 찾아온다!

원격조종 로봇를 통해 포기하고 있던 현실 세계로 돌아갈 수 있게 된다면?' 불가능하지만은 않은 상상에서 출발한 영화 [히노키오]는 분명 로봇의 대활약을 그린 여느 영화와는 노선을 달리 한다. 마요네즈 한 방울 때문에 사랑의 열병까지 앓게 되는 [바이센테니얼 맨]의 로봇 앤드류 때문에 가슴 아파하고, 천재 아역배우 할리 조엘 오스먼트가 연기해 더욱 절절하게 다가왔던, 사람을 사랑하게끔 프로그래밍된 [A.I] 로봇 데이비드와 함께 눈물 흘린 이라면 분명 [히노키오]를 사랑하지 않을 수 없을 것이다. 원격조종 로봇 [히노키오]를 통해 주인공 사토루는 그동안 만날 수 없을 것 같았던 사람들과 만남을 가지고 새로운 인간관계가 움튼다.

로봇이 핸드폰, 인터넷 같은 차세대 커뮤니케이션의 도구로서, 그리고 사회로 통하는 창의 역할을 수행하게 된다는 독특한 발상이 이 영화의 원점이 된 것이다. 현재 일본인구의 1퍼센트이상을 차지하며 그 수는 120만 명을 넘어선다고 전해지는 은둔형 외톨이. 국내에서도 10만 명을 넘어서며 새로운 사회문제로 떠오른 그들을 껴안고 독특한 발상으로 해결책을 제시하는 이 영화는 우리 안의 그들을 발견하는 새로운 감동을 선사한다.

언젠가 소년과 소녀였을 당신에게 보내는 감동의 메시지!

일본만이 아니라 세계에서 이미 검증 받은 특수효과의 귀재 아키야마 타카히코 감독은,[파이널 판타지]의 완벽한 VFX와 CG 구현으로 그 실력을 인정받은 바 있다. 그런 그가 20년간 품어두었던 프로젝트 [히노키오] 안에는 그 시절의 순수함이 그대로 간직되어 있다. 그리고 2003년 미국 아카데미 단편 애니메이션상 후보에 올라 화제를 모았던 요네무라 슈지와의 공동작업을 통해 완성된 탄탄한 각본은, 이 영화를 단순한 볼거리가 아닌 사람과 사람의 연결을 그린 순수한 러브스토리로서의 감동까지 안겨준다.


새로 온 전학생의 정체가 로봇?! 과연 로봇과 친구가 될 수 있을까?

원격조종 로봇을 통한 대리등교를 허용하는 법안이 통과된 후, 교통사고로 어머니를 잃어버린 충격으로 휠체어생활을 하고있는 사토루는 법안실험의 첫 대상이 되었다. 아이들은 재료로 노송(히노키)나무가 사용되었다는 이유로 로봇에게 '히노키오'라는 별명을 붙여주고 학교 전체의 관심이 히노키오에게 쏠린다. 하지만 타인에게 관심을 보이지 않는 히노키오에게 실망한 골목대장 준, 졸병 죠이치와 겐타는 히노키오를 괴롭힐 계획을 세우는데…

처음 맛보는 우정, 어느덧 우정은 설레임으로 바뀌어버리고..

Professional Review of "Hinokio (DVD) (Limited Edition) (Korea Version)"

October 12, 2005

This professional review refers to HINOKIO INTER GALACTIC LOVE (Japan Version - English Subtitles )
Hinokio is a heart-warming children's film that looks at young people affected by death, school, friendship, and communication. Satoru, emotionally handicapped by his mother's death and the temporary disability of his legs, has a fear of emotional communication with his father and those around him. In order to regain a sense of social interaction, Satoru uses a bizarre-looking robot nicknamed Hinokio to carry out his everyday duties (namely attending school). In this film, Satoru's use of the Hinokio robot provides a stage for the reflection of his inner emotions and his eventual reintegration into family and society.

Most films directed towards children usually contain a positive message for social behavior, morality, and traditional values. Hinokio is no different: the positive messages are indeed there, albeit somewhat confused. This is because the range of societal problems and subplots that the film tries to incorporate is much larger than a 110-minute film can accommodate. For example, the problems between Satoru and his father would be more than enough to take the audience on a more focused and emotionally wrenching journey.

Adding to the confusion, some of the metaphors used in the film are also too complicated for the comprehension of younger viewers. In particular, the links between the real world, the virtual world, and the spiritual world, most of which are loosely explained by a video game featured in the film. This may sound confusing, and indeed it is, as the film oscillates between the real world and the game world. Finally, these two worlds merge, creating an even more confusing gateway into the spiritual world.

One of the less talked about achievements of the film is the visual effects. The effects used to create the Hinokio robot are an achievement in themselves. This isn't surprising since director Takahiko Akiyama was the special effects supervisor for Final Fantasy – The Spirit Within. The way the robot looks and moves imbues a sense of humor and vulnerability which accurately reflect Satoru's character. Ultimately, the synergy between Satoru and the robot becomes so comprehensive that at times you forget that Satoru is really a human and not a robot.

Overall, Hinokio isn't good enough to warrant a cinema outing, but, despite its minor flaws, it's an enjoyable film that is positively geared towards youths and family audiences.

A heartwarming movie. Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
Have you ever wonder if there`s a real-life pinochio? Is there a way to bring this favored child`s tale to life without beating to death with cliches?

Hinokio is stunning when it comes to special effects, CGI and booasts great acting from the child actors/actresses. Storywise, I can only describe it as slightly predictable. At times, I can see each frame of the movie as each plate of a well-plotted manga.
But I enjoy it nonetheless.

So much that I owed the DVD!
