Film recommendation – 君の名は・Your Name

Today, something a bit different – a movie recommendation!

君の名は (kimi no na wa) or in English – “Your Name”

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.
