Story is straightforward, where ghibli ones tend to be more convoluted and quest-like.
It's worth having in DVD form in the house.
I thoroughly enjoyed it
Not particularly a fan of Japanese subbed films or tv shows
So I saw this I'd Japanese- English Dubbed
End result: brilliant and awesome
Btw the Wikipedia page plot for this film doesn't totally give it it's full justice
The film is WAY better than the wiki write up
I highly recommend it
Overall, I absolutely adore Your Name and I think everyone (whether they are an Anime fan or not) needs to check out this masterpiece. Makoto Shinkai, you really outdid yourself here!!
But beforehand let me quickly mention that the formal and technical sides of this movie are very good - nothing to complain. There should not be any doubt about that. The drawings are beautiful, the animation is fluid, the colors are well chosen, the music is composed and played gorgeous.
Now regarding the content: To me personally it is nothing less than a masterpiece; no way around it. It is not merely a movie it is a piece of art like a poem, like a (metaphysical) parable. It is one of the movies that are enjoyable to think about because they are complete, because they are whole - like a an organism. If a regular narrative is a line this movie is a circle. (not circular)
The experiential aspect I can only describe by means of an analogy: like the tongue distinguishes a handful of tastes the soul distinguishes a handful of emotions like joy, sadness, fear, surprise and so on. Something could feel sad like something can taste sweet but that does not say anything about the complex quality behind that sweetness. Just because chocolate and bananas are both sweet does not mean they taste the same. Are you following?
Likewise not every sad movie is sad in the same way. It does not have always the sadness of the same kind, it can be of a well composed kind of sadness or of a cheap and poor kind. They taste different.
So applied to the movie I can say, without exaggeration, that I have never tasted such rich and well-composed emotions, feelings and thoughts in one movie. Such an exotic taste. Partially this move has something of a myth, it gives you a glimpse of the indescribable. In this case, in "your name", time and first love plays a role but again: in an exotic way I have never encountered before.
In conclusion: Any adjectives like "beautiful" or "brilliant" would only cause insufficient associations that wont do justice to that artwork. Just like you wouldn't ever be able to feel the taste of an exotic food or fruit by the mere description you got you cannot even conceptualize how this movies "tastes".
My recommendation is - taste and see that your name is good!
A heart tugging film that has been touted as a Studio Ghibli inheritor. It's not quite in that league, but only just short. The animation in parts is beautiful, but it is the story of dreams, love, the growing pains of youth that truly speaks in this film.
A young girl in the countryside and a young boy in the middle of urban Tokyo connect in a bond that transcends both time and life itself. A clever story full of humour and with moments of great pain that even if the toughest of viewer will not struggle to be moved.
A truly wonderful animation and it deserves the universal praise it is receiving.
