What are the foundations of civilization?

The city of absolute beauty is going through a barbaric impact. When people reach middle age, they encounter mediocrity knocking on the door. If they lose the foundation of reality, no matter how dazzling the shape is, they will lose their soul, and no matter how delicate their life is, they will be empty.

The screen is full of masterpieces of human civilization, but there are few scenes of natural scenery. Was it deliberately done by the director? However, the core of the film is very similar to the poem of Hayao Miyazaki's City in the Sky, such as the song of Google, rooted in the soil, coexisting with the wind, wintering with seeds, and singing with birds.

That is the foundation of all civilization.
