Eleven Arts describes the movie:
Poupelle of Chimney City is the story of younger Lubicchi residing among the many thick smoke from the chimneys of his remoted city, craving to see the “stars” —to know the reality —his father all the time advised him about. One Halloween evening he meets Poupelle, a person product of rubbish, and collectively they appear to the sky as their journey begins. Spectacularly lovely, crammed with inspiring performances and splendid music and sound results, and produced at Tokyo’s famed Studio 4ºC, Poupelle of Chimney City brings laughter, tears and pleasure.
The movie opened in Japan on December 25 and ranked at #4 and earned 322,998,700 (about US$3.13 million) in its opening weekend.
Hirota (CGI director for Berserk movies, Concord) directed the movie, with Nishino serving as manufacturing supervisor, unique creator, and author. Atsuko Fukushima (Genius Get together, Robotic Carnival) designed the characters.
