Jumping-Bryan DiBlasi

Although we didn’t get to it in class, I really enjoyed the film “Jumping”. This was the first Osamu Tezuka film I’d seen (aside from the “Astro Boy” stuff), and my favorite of his thus far. I just thought that the idea behind the story and the way he executed it was a very unique one. After I saw this, I looked up his film “Metropolis”, which I also enjoyed. I had read that he got the idea for the film from looking at a movie poster of Fritz Langs “Metropolis”(1927). This was what had attracted me to the film in the first place; me being a big fan of the German Expressionist Movement. Although, Osamu Tezuka claims to have never have seen the film himself; only the poster.
