Legendary Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata (Grave of the Fireflies, Pom Poko) revisits Japan's most famous folktale in this gorgeous, hand-drawn masterwork, decades in the making. Found inside a shining stalk of bamboo by an old bamboo cutter and his wife, a tiny girl grows rapidly into an exquisite young lady. The mysterious young princess enthralls all who encounter her—but ultimately she must confront her fate, the punishment for her crime. From the studio that produced Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro and The Wind Rises comes a powerful and sweeping epic that redefines the limits of animated storytelling and marks a triumphant high point within an extraordinary career in filmmaking for director Takahata. Academy Award nominee for Best Animated Feature. (Fully Subtitled)
