This deep and visually complex Studio Ghibli film is about a young boy who, while yearning for his dead mother, develops a relationship with a heron. The heron guides the boy to a world shared by both the living and the dead. Rumored to be Hayao Miyazaki’s final film, and perhaps his finest.
(dir. Hayao Miyazaki, Japan, 2023, 124m)

“No one needed further proof that (Miyazaki) is a master. This meditation on grief and growing up does solidify the position, however, that Miyazaki remains the greatest living animator today, period.” – Rolling Stone
