Mitsuha and Taki are two total strangers living completely different lives. But when Mitsuha makes a wish to leave her mountain town for the bustling city of Tokyo, they become connected in a bizarre way. She dreams she is a boy living in Tokyo while Taki dreams he is a girl from a rural town he’s never been to.
Considered by many as the heir to Studio Ghibli's Hayao Miyazaki, Makota Shinkai (5 Centimeters Per Second, The Garden of Words) proves himself to be a master of precise, beautifully observed animation, with every scene rich in detail. As a writer, he delivers an emotionally-charged story, cleverly balancing contemporary feel, traditional influence and sci-fi elements, keeping the viewer enthralled as the drama moves towards its awe-inspiring conclusion. This is a thought-provoking, mature work by one of Japan’s finest filmmakers.
Your Name, Makoto Shinkai, Japan 2016, 107mins, Japanese with English subtitles.
