Screening on December 5th is subtitled in English!
Magical, romantic and moving, this animated fairy tale is presently the world-wide favorite of Japanese cinema. After a meteorite shower, the lives of village girl Mitsuha and city boy Taki are drastically changed: they awaken in each other’s bodies. The theme of Your Name is that, somewhere in the world, there is someone to whom each of us is inextricably connected.
Mitsuha had always dreamed of the big city. “Please make me a nice-looking Tokyo boy in my next life!” Now that her wish comes true unexpectedly, her life becomes an exciting, hilarious adventure. Their lives are exchanged, completely beyond their control. But then a gigantic meteor appears in the sky and the suspense is heightened: they want to meet each other, but is their connection strong enough? And will they survive?
Your Name gives us breathtakingly beautiful animation, from hyper-realistic cityscapes and the most spectacular astral magic to hallucinatory pastel images. Even the most convinced cynics will feel themselves pulled into another world.
