Your Name.

Your Name. ★★★★★

In Your Name, the hyper-flourescent contrails of a comet hurtling through the starry night sky are like the multi-layered overlapping thematic threads that are interleaved into the very fabric of this film as it crafts a beautifully woven tapestry.

Beneath the comet, people are brought together by the shared act of bearing witness to its periodic cosmic orbit every hundred years. It is a reminder that we all share a common humanity that oscillates throughout time and place.

The interference patterns that ripple out from its trailblazing path create intersections where relationships are born between people living and dead, between cities and villages and between boys and girls, each relationship being an opportunity for love and friendship.

And when the comet disintegrates and the sky comes tumbling down, it is love that ultimately holds fast and continues to unite us all.

A beautiful movie that reminds me of why being alive is such an amazing way to spend your day.
