Your Name (Kimi no na wa) – Movie Review
Two high school kids who’ve never met – city boy Taki and country girl Mitsuha – are united through their dreams.
Makoto Shinkai has been tugging the hearts of anime lovers for years. His films, 5 Centimeters Per Second, The Garden of Words and Voices of a Distant Star have touched many around the world. But his latest, Your Name is easily his most accomplished and beautiful work yet. The animation is spectacular, the characters are wonderfully realized, and the seamless combination of humor and drama is delightfully refreshing.
