Your Name. (English version)
Opens May 12, 2017
This ambitious, imaginative animated feature revolves around two high
school students whose worlds collide. Mitsuha yearns to leave her rural
village and move to Tokyo. One day, her wish is granted, as she
mysteriously swaps bodies with Taki, a handsome Tokyo boy. These body
swaps happen over and over, forcing the two to find ways to connect. A
phenomenal hit with both critics and audiences, Your Name. is the fourth highest grossing film in Japanese box office history.
"Accolades like that can create outsized expectations, but Your Name.
is nothing if not an expansive achievement. The movie's spirit is by
turns energetic and serene, impetuous and wise, its wild shifts from
comedy to tragedy to romance revealing themselves not as tonal swings so
much as variations in a larger cosmic pattern. It is a thrillingly
beautiful movie." (Justin Chang, The Los Angeles Times)
