Your Name.

Your Name. ★★★★★

Wow. Your Name wonderfully captures a nuanced and intimate portrayal of adolescence and builds upon its central hook with an eye for masterful storytelling and painstaking, but beautiful emotional beats. In many ways, this beauty comes from the meteor - the catalyst of the film - that achingly breaks apart our perception of reality and blurs the line between real life and fantasy. Shinkai’s craft is undeniably class, and his obsession with the weather and natural occurrences is providing a freshness to the Anime scene.
