5 cm/s: a chain of short stories about their distance
This is Part 1 of Cosmonaut(2nd Chapter of the film)
This film gives a realistic view of the struggles many face against, time, space, people, and love. The movie is named 5 Centimeters Per Second for the speed at which cherry blossom petals fall, petals being a metaphorical representation of humans, reminiscent of the slowness of life and how people often start together but slowly drift into their separate ways. It is directed by Makoto Shinkai and the film in its entirety runs for about an hour.
