(2013) dir Isao Takahata [137 min; DCP; in Japanese with English subtitles]
Takahata 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. Staff Pick: Moussou

“‘The Tale of the Princess Kaguya’ is a marvel of Japanese animation, a hand-drawn, painterly epic that submerges us in a world of beauty.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
