From Up on Poppy Hill

Love Ponyo. Love My Neighbor Totoro. Love The Cate Returns. I pretty much love all of the Studio Ghibli films so I am very excited for this new one. Also excited for a good cry!

“Set in Yokohama in 1963, as Japan is picking itself up from the devastation of World War II and preparing to host the 1964 Olympics, the story centers on Umi and Shun, two high school kids caught up in the changing times. But a buried secret from their past emerges to cast a shadow on the future and pull them apart. With its rich color palette, stunning exteriors, sun-drenched gardens, bustling cityscapes and painterly detail, From Up on Poppy Hill provides a pure, sincere, and nuanced evocation of the past, and marks yet another creative triumph for Studio Ghibli.”
