    Smile Your Name (2016)

    When I heard that Your Name is the highest grossing anime film in history, I thought that either it would be great or it would be overtly commercial. Needless to say, I was not disappointed.

    Small town high school girl Mitsuha and big city high school boy Taki keep changing bodies. First they both chuck it off as a dream, but eventually they do catch on leaving text messages for each other so they do nothing to arouse anyone's suspicion. Fat chance. This does lead to several comic situations, not the least of which is what happens when they confront each otherís bodies. You know this had to go there.

    But the story shifts when Taki learns the fate of Misuha and her doomed community. What then follows is a desperate fight against time itself by Taki to save Misuha. The pace of the film does get briefly bogged down before it gets to the second half, but consider that just the lull before the storm. This is the moment the film gets very intense.

    The artwork is superb, and at times astonishing. The animation is first rate. No cheap short cuts are taken here. Director Makoto Shinkai goes all out to stir your visual senses, bringing life to the entire screen. This film is best watched on a large theater screen.

    Your Name is not for small children. Pre-teens and up, OK. This would include adults. Your Name is currently in limited release in the US in both English and Japanese with subtitles. Definitely go see it.

    I really enjoyed the movie. Also very glad I got to catch it in theaters, though I would've wanted to see it twice, but timing just didn't work out. Might try again, but my time is sadly all too limited.

    As is usual of Makoto Shinkai's work, it is visually stunning, places I've seen and been to look like they might be photos, or scenes from a movie, but with more life to them, his directing style emphasizes living places, and is wonderful at illustrating the crazy hustle of the streets of Tokyo, and then just as easily the natural splendor of a country village. Also, as is per the norm for Shinkai, the movie concerns itself with star crossed lovers. He tends to focus on two people in his works, and their relationship, and both Taki and Mitsuha felt real. Their actions made sense, and you really were rooting for them to find each other. Since we're talking about spoilers here anyway, I'll say that the ending felt very satisfying. I am too used to Shinkai's works getting mired down in their own ennui, and was very glad that this one avoided the same fate.

    It is very much a movie worth seeing, and a movie worth seeing more than once.

    Tell me about it. The previous movie I went to a theater to see was Fences. I used to go every week.

    Not only just a great ending, it ended at the precise perfect moment. Even I got misty eyed.

    I just re-watched Your Name tonight. Still a great film, although the artwork and animation looked much better in the theater. It often works that way.
