Los Angeles Times Critic’s Pick
Legendary director Isao Takahata revisits Japan’s most famous folktale in this gorgeous, hand-drawn masterwork, decades in the making. This is a powerful and sweeping epic that redefines the limits of animated storytelling. It is a stunning parable about what matters in life and what does not.
“A marvel of Japanese animation, a hand-drawn, painterly epic that submerges us in a world of beauty. While almost everything about it bespeaks its origins in a culture very different from the West, the delicacy and grace of its sublime imagery create an impact that couldn’t be stronger.” -Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
“Exquisitely drawn with both watercolor delicacy and a brisk sense of line, the film finds a peculiarly moving undertow of feeling in a venerable Japanese folk tale about a foundling country girl who can’t shake a sense of being out of place. ” – Nicolas Rapold, New York Times
” It’s the best kind of fairy tale – tough, deep and meaningful, with a heroine who stays true to herself. ” – Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
“Isao Takahata’s retelling of the oldest recorded Japanese narrative is a visionary tour de force.” – Maggie Lee, Variety
” An allegory about the irrecoverable joys of childhood, it may make parents hug their kids now.” – Graham Fuller, New York Daily News
