This is a beautiful film. I realize that's a weak, generic word these days, but I can't think of a better one. Speaking as someone who hasn't particularly resonated with Miyazaki the way that some of the folks here have, I was surprised by how much the film got to me. (Katabuchi was screenwriter for Miyazaki before doing Princess Arete.) The story is not particularly narrative (which is again, usually a problem for me), but it (re)creates its world with such richness and detail that I was more than happy to just observe these people and their daily rituals. (It takes place in Hiroshima just prior to dropping of atomic bomb.) It's opening in NC in mid-August, so I imagine it will work its way around to major cities. If you are an animation fan, do make an effort to see it.
