Note there are no pictures with this review because I watched it at Sakura Con
When she was little Jun Nanase witnessed her father commit adultery and as a result was cursed by an egg to be unable to speak. Years later Jun is selected by her teacher to be on a committee to to put together a performance for the community. It is decided that the performance will be a musical but what will that mean for Jun's curse as well as the other three students on the committee?
Anthem of the Heart is a movie that is mostly a teenage romantic drama. It also has a small amount of comedy to it, not enough to interrupt the drama but it helps the movie from feeling too heavy or pretentious. Although it is a romantic show the movie isn't one that is geared to one gender and is clean enough that you can watch with most of the family although little children probably wouldn't like this.
The main cast consists of the four students in the committee and each of them has enough sub plots to them to make the movie complex but not convoluted.All the main characters feel fleshed out as they could be in a normal length movie and they work well and build on each other as well. In truth there is little I can say about this movie that isn't praise.
Overall I think Anthem of the Heart is a movie that I think could earn it's place among the anime movie classics.
Rating the Golden Egg for being a wonder of a movie that restored my faith in anime.
