Synopsis [D]estined to be remembered as one of the revered Studio Ghibli’s finest achievements, Takahata’s first feature in 15 years delivers an emotional wallop on par with that of his 1988 masterpiece GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES. -- Grade: A[A] marvel of Japanese animation, a hand-drawn, painterly epic that submerges us in a world of beauty.The pastel watercolors and line drawings are enhanced with splashes of more vibrant hues -- a flitting bluebird, brilliant diaphanous kimonos, luminous cherry trees in full bloom.4 stars out of 5 -- [P]ersonal, beautiful, and proving one last time, should we need reminding, that Takahata is a master filmmaker of the highest order.4 stars out of 5 -- Unique, beautiful and endlessly fascinating. It really is a work of art.In this fanciful tale, a bamboo seller finds a tiny princess in a stalk of the plant. Years later, five men propose marriage to her, but she isn't interested in any of them.
