From Up on Poppy Hill Directed by Gorō Miyazaki
The film’s primary delights derive from its immaculate visual craftsmanship and the sensual fluidity of its animation. Look out for Umi’s chopping board when she’s preparing cabbage to eat with tempura: it’s dinted and scuffed with knife scores. It’s a microscopic piece of detailing which isn’t in any way pushed to the fore, yet it satisfyingly encapsulates the film’s underlying… ideology of cherishing products, places and people to the end of their natural lives and beyond.

While Goro Miyazaki was not yet a gleam in his father’s eye in 1964, he brings emotional freshness and a winning simplicity to this lovely little period fable, which was released on a small scale in New York a few weeks ago and has turned into the season’s sleeper family-audience hit. “From Up on Poppy Hill” can’t quite match the greatest of the Ghibli films, but it makes clear that there’s plenty of magic left in the Miyazaki family.

The film maintains an optimistic tone without succumbing to nostalgia, and as always with Studio Ghibli, the company Miyazaki cofounded in the 80s, the hand-drawn animation is gorgeous.
