"A Great Watch"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I've watched this movie many times, it's a favourite I go back to. The characters are engaging and draw you in, the story is unpredictable and varied, the historical aspect is fascinating and insightful and there is enough comedy to lighten the intensity of some of the themes. It's a sweet love story.

"Ghibli Did It Again."
4 stars"

Another fantastic story by Studio Ghibli, I fell in love with it straight away.

"A sweet romance between high school students set in the 1960s."

Purchased on Mighty Ape

I loved this film. It is set in the 1960s in the year before Japan hosted the Olympic Games. The romance between the lead characters is very engaging.



From Up On Poppy Hill

A high school love story in the year before the 1964 Tokyo Summer Olympics as Japan begins to pick itself up from the devastation of World War II. A new generation struggles to move towards a prosperous future whilst trying not to lose the essence of their past. Capturing the beauty of Yokohama harbour, Umi and Shun's budding romance develops as they join forces to save their high school's ramshackle clubhouse from demolition.

From the Studio Ghibli Collection.

  • " You don't watch a Studio Ghibli film so much as sink into it like a hot spring, with groans of delight. " – Robbie Collin
