Steve Reviews: The Ringing Bell (Chirin's Bell)

This time Steve Reviews The Ringing Bell, a film that has been highly requested for some time now. It follows the tragic tale of a little lamb named Chirin, and despite being targeted towards kids, has a very dark story line, with some intense scenes of violence.

    Ok I'm seeing a lot of comments theorising what the film's moral could be and whether it even intended to have one. After seeing a couple of comments below and doing some research online, it appears that in the original book Chirin ends up ambushing the wolf, and admits that he had always intended to kill him someday in order to seek revenge. But after killing the wolf, Chirin realises that getting his revenge did not bring him happiness, and admits that he actually loved the wolf as a teacher and a father figure. THIS would actually fit the moral that it is wrong to become consumed with revenge, but I guess the film thought that would have been too dark for Chirin's character, and so made out that he only killed the wolf to protect the other sheep. Which unfortunately ends up clouding the message of the story. So yeah, mystery solved team!

      The moral in the book was better and more consistent. I hope this story gets a new anime adaptation one day. An adaptation that is more faithful to the book.

      I think the reason the sheep rejected Chirin is because they were simply afraid of him; this massive monster comes out of nowhere, murders the people protecting you, almost slaughters you and all your friends, then kills the person you'd feared all your life in cold blood. Wouldn't you be afraid?

    is there anything to say about the symbolism of the lamb? lambs are very noble creatures that even in the moment of their death, they don't fight or resist, and in christianity is the simbol of the son of god as a suffering being and triumphant, forgiving by nature. So, i just saw the exact opposite, wouldn't be fitting for chirin to be a black lamb? or maybe i just had too much internet for one day

    I’m reading everyone’s comments and I think there’s a side moral of the story. You’re damned if u do and damned if u don’t. The herd treated Chirin as an outcast even when he was a lamb (he was the only one with a bell, he wasn’t consoled for his mother’s death) He was also treated like an outcast when he turned into the demon sheep, he was still outcasted even after he saved them. I also see that he was an outcast when he portrayed pure innocence (a pure baby lamb) and an evil lookin wolf sheep. Either way he was doomed. I think Chirin should’ve just lived how he wanted to. I mean normal isn’t always good the rest do the sheep are background extras Chirin has his own movie 👹👹👹👹👹🥰 Don’t let society’s standards dictate who u are because either way without Chirin that herd would have died without him whether they like him or not. And I think another message would be “following the herd” is not always the right answer aka following society’s misconceptions and rules. If u do u just end up a bi stander or u end up being killed. Chirin wanted to be a wolf even though he’s a sheep and he did just that. So f society.

    Fun Fact: Adult Chirin was voiced by Akira Kamiya (who also voiced Kenshiro from Fist of The North Star) which makes why he sounded familiar when Chirin's an adult.

    You know this whole plot about Chirn wanting to avenge his mother and fed up being scared and defenceless wanting to become stronger but ends up being trained by the wolf and becoming like the wolf thereby losing sight of what he originally set out to do seriously sounds like the basic of what probably happened with Drago Bludvist in How To Train Your Dragon 2 if they didn't obviously rush Drago into the plot as he wasn't even supposed to be in the 2nd film in the first place. Let's see......lived in fear of dragons who then murdered his entire village and ripped off his arm so he vowed to rise above the fear of dragons and liberate the world but of course starts using dragons for conquest including ones that have probably never harmed people and became as bad as the ones who destroyed his village meaning he lost sight of what he set out to do. Oh and of course the conclusion is that neither of them get happy endings and are left with an uncertain ambiguous fate (since Drago isn't confirmed to have drowned)

    After having read way too much family drama; pretty sure there wasn't a great morale here (unlike the book), it was probably meant as an allegory/fable. There wasn't a great reason for the wolf to want to kill the entire herd, except to sever the last ties Chirin had to his old life. The wolf didn't seem to have any plans for this until after Chirin told hi he was effectively his parent. Considering we live in a world where step parents and parental alienation isn't unusual, I can see why the filmmakers might want to shift the focus a bit and look at how divided a child can end up in such a situation. Maybe a bit of a leap, but that is often the case with interpretation of the artist intent. I definitely find the one from the book easier to follow.

    It speaks about nature of course and relates to the symbolization of sheep and wolves. Chirin witnesses the great life of peace and harmony until Woe arrives. When he does she witnesses his own dark reality of what his life will be. So he decides otherwise to change his life and become a sharper animal. Although he can only do this by adapting with Woe because he knows woe is wiser about the dark side of life, now you ask, why doesn’t woe just kill Chirin? Because there’s no point. After the birds are killed and chirin cries realizing he had done this Woe speaks to him about his life. Chirin dictates that he wants to get away from being a sheep but he doesn’t have the ability to. Woe understanding Chirins situation begins to train chirin, later adapting him into a fierce creature. As you know they go to the farm to kill some sheep. But chirin has the moment that relates to his past bringing his reality back that he is inherently is a sheep. So he kills woe and then is unaccepted by the sheep because he strayed to far from them. It has a lot of mixed themes and relatively when you think about them they make sense although it’s hard for me to explain them here

    I feel like the closest sheep type to Chrin is a Jacob Sheep. Though they ha two sets of horn. The top set curves back and the bottom set curves forward. On occasion though the top most horns can grow in a forward-ish fashion, but I don't know much about the breed personally. Just what I found doing minor research.

    This might have already been mentioned here, but I'd like to point something out about the bell. It's an old animal husbandry (ranching) custom in some areas of the world to designate a young male from the herd or flock as the "bellwether." The bellwether is castrated and specially conditioned to be the most responsive to the rancher's calls, while simultaneously being the one member of the herd/flock to which other members tend to follow or gather around, for the purposes of easier herding and field rotation. Hence, the poignant, if subtle, cosmic irony: Chirin was meant to lead his flock, but instead lost himself to the monstrosity which stole his mother's life and his innocence. It's poetic when you think about how he was supposed to live a life of contentment and companionship...only to be left abandoned to a cruel fate of solitude, all because he could not accept his grief and make peace with himself.

    I think when the wolf told Chirin that one thing must die for another to live that some of that got lost in translation. I think the real translation goes along more like some things are meant to die while others live, and the hard truth of that. So when the wolf saw that Chirin didn't die from the fall, whirlpool, etc. , he knew that he was meant to live, and later tried to force him to kill the sheep because he believed they were meant to die. So maybe just more about having a predisposition on nature and the duality of how it can be both cruel and beautiful.
