(2013) dir Isao Takahata [137 min; DCP]
Legendary Studio Ghibli cofounder Isao Takahata (Grave of the Fireflies) revisits Japan’s most famous folktale in this gorgeous, hand-drawn masterwork, decades in the making. Found inside a shining stalk of bamboo by an old bamboo cutter and his wife, a tiny girl grows rapidly into an exquisite young lady. The mysterious young princess enthralls all who encounter her – but ultimately she must confront her fate: the punishment for her crime.

THE TALE OF THE PRINCESS KAGUYA: IMDB | Facebook

“This delicate, hand-drawn marvel is lyrical and heartbreaking in ways that most live-action movies never approach.” – Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor

“The Tale of Princess Kaguya is both very simple and head-spinningly confounding, a thing of endless visual beauty that seems to partake in a kind of pictorial minimalism but finds staggering possibilities for beautiful variation within its ineluctable modality. It’s a true work of art.” – Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com
