Today, something a bit different – a movie recommendation!
君の名は (kimi no na wa) or in English – “Your Name” http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5311514/
It’s anime, but don’t let that put you off, this is a story about people – friendship, family, love etc. – no monsters!
“Your name” was a major hit in Japan in 2016 and 2017.
It’s been on my list of things to watch for a while. I finally got around to watching it on my recent flight back from Japan.
I don’t want to give away anything about the plot or storyline, I think it’d be more of a nice surprise if you don’t know much about it.
I like it so much I sent my mum a copy – together with a box of chocolates.
I was deeply touched by the story and I might have even shed a tear on the plane! (highly embarassing).
The animation itself is stunningly beautiful. It’s the first time I really had a ‘wow’ moment with some of the scenes.
The movie also has an excellent soundtrack by the RADWIMPS – the main song ‘Zen Zen Zensee’ is really great.
Hope you get a chance to watch it and enjoy it.
