Review: ‘Your Name’ is an Exhilarating Philosophical and Metaphysical Parable

I had no idea what to expect upon sitting down to Your Name and the first few minutes definitely had my head spinning. We’re ushered in via the voiceover narration of two high schoolers we’ve yet to properly meet in Mitsuha (Mone Kamishiraishi) and Taki (Ryûnosuke Kamiki). They speak about dreams as a rare comet shoots across the blue sky. It’s cryptic, beautiful, and utterly fascinating—a subdued tone easing us in before a kinetic collage of vignettes without context replaces it, a Radwimps rock anthem blaring about love. This shift to music video interlude proves jarringly abrupt; its culmination marked by Mitsuha awakening from slumber a wonderful splash into the deep-end of this anime’s high concept romantic fantasy.

My disorientation continued because this girl didn’t seem herself. Without warning, logic, or exposition beyond those opening lines of esoteric prose, we suddenly realize the person

Movie Review: Freaky Friday meets Nicholas Sparks in the record-breaking anime Your Name

Already the fourth-highest-grossing film ever in its home country of Japan (trailing Spirited Away, Titanic, and Frozen), the anime romance Your Name boasts a fate-driven appeal that’ll be quite familiar to Americans who love Nicholas Sparks novels and their onscreen adaptations. Initially, the story appears to be a basic Freaky Friday-style body swap, albeit with a slight twist: The people involved don’t know each other at all. One day, Tokyo teenager Taki (voice of Ryûnosuke Kamiki) mysteriously awakens to find his consciousness inhabiting a girl of roughly the same age, Mitsuha (Mone Kamishiraishi), who lives in a rural area some 200 miles away. He spends a confused day struggling to maintain this stranger’s routine, unaware that Mitsuha is making the same effort in his own body. The next day, everything’s back to normal, but the switch keeps happening, seemingly at random. Eventually, they start communicating ...

“Your Name” becomes Third Highest Grossing Japanese Film of All Time

Makato Shinkai’s “Kimi No Na Wa” or “Your Name” continues to conquer audiences all over the world. Since it August release, the mystical body-swapping film has spent 12 weeks atop the Japanese box office and has earned ¥19.4 billion ($196 million) in ticket sales.

Your Name is the first anime outside Studio Ghibli to earn more than $100 million in ticket sales. It blew past Hayao Miyazaki’s Princess Mononoke for the third highest spot in the Japanese all-time box office. Based on its strong trajectory, Your Name is also poised to topple Miyazaki’s Howl’s Moving Castle. With the film’s spectacular animation and elegant narration, writer-director Shinkai has been dubbed as the next Hayao Miyazaki. Given his critical and commercial success, Shinkai might indeed be the future of Japanese animation.

The Shinkai masterpiece follows the story of two teenagers, Mitsuha Miyamizu and Taki Tachibana. Mone Kamishiraishi (from Wolf Children and

Movie Review – Your Name (2016)

Your Name, 2016.

Directed by Makoto Shinkai.

Featuring the voice talents of Ryunosuke Kamiki, Mone Kamishiraishi and Madami Nagasawa.

Synopsis:

A teenage boy and girl from different parts of Japan randomly wake up in each other’s bodies, with no idea why.

Before watching Your Name, the only other Makoto Shinkai film I was familiar with was 5 Centimetres Per Second, which had a wonderful atmosphere but was very light on plot. This film shares the same basic theme of long-distance relationships, but is far more ambitious, funny and emotionally rich. It seems inevitable that any outstanding Japanese animation not made by Studio Ghibli will earn comparisons to them and their incredible back catalogue of films, but with Your Name Shinkai has crafted something unique, hard-to-categorise and decidedly modern. In fact, the only old-fashioned aspect of it (apart from the standard anime character design) is the quality of the storytelling.

‘Your Name’ review [Lff 2016]

Your Name review: A reflection on youth, love, and finding yourself, Your Name will be mentioned in the same breath as the best work of Hayao Miyazaki.

Your Name review by Luke Ryan Baldock, Lff 2016.

Your Name review

Your Name has already set Japan’s box office on fire. Having taken in over 10 billion yen and becoming the fifth highest grossing anime in history. For a non-Studio Ghibli/non-franchise film, that’s certainly something to marvel at, and also cements director Makoto Shinkai as a terrific visionary, following on from his previous efforts 5 Centimetres Per Second and Journey to Agartha. As it arrives at the London Film Festival, it is now the first animated feature to play in competition, and the hype is definitely deserved.

The film begins as a body-swap comedy, seeing teenagers Taki (Ryunosuke Kamiki) and Mitsuha (Mone Kamishiraishi) switching places. Taki is a student in Tokyo,
