A gem of a film for all ages from Studio Ghibli’s other master, Isao Takahata (Grave of the Fireflies). In this captivating 10,000 year fable, a woodcutter discovers a magical child in a bamboo stalk. The girl grows quickly, transforming into a young woman of such grace and beauty it seems her life is charmed…

Princess Kaguya has the feel of a true Takahata film, from its unshrinking emotional fidelity to its sudden, exhilarating leaps into fantasy […] There is a deep wisdom in this film, but a deep sadness too. If it is Takahata’s farewell, it’s one that will have a long echo, just like his 1,000-year-old source.” Mark Schilling, Japan Times

"A visionary tour de force." Maggie Lee, Variety
