A period piece that beautifully evokes both the 1960s and 1980s, and the quintessential drama of Japanese school-day nostalgia. Realizing she is at a crossroads in her life, bored twentysomething Taeko heads for the countryside. The trip dredges up forgotten childhood memories which unfold in flashback to younger years: the first stirrings of romance, the onset of puberty and the frustrations of math and boys. In lyrical switches between the present and the past, Taeko wonders if she has been true to the dreams of her childhood self. Studio Ghibli is known for its female heroines, but here they delve deeper into the real emotional experiences of girls/women than perhaps any animated film before or since.

In a break from the frequently mythical storytelling of Studio Ghibli, director Isao Takahata wryly tweaks the everyday activities of family life with his depiction of the irresponsible, slovenly and lazy Yamada family and their unassuming way of life. With cartoon-like characters and visual design unlike anything else in the Ghibli canon, the film is illustrated in a series of rough sketches and outlines, which are then filled with soft colors that evoke watercolor painting.

Sure, it's wishful and not reflective of the way things really are, but no one wants the movies to be a mirror anyway. We don't want or need accuracy; we want and need a little comfort and reassurance. If you want to be discomfited and made afraid, go read some subtitles. Go find some Fassbinder. 041b061a72
