From Up on Poppy Hill

from-up-on-poppy-hill2012 Awards of the Japanese Academy – Winner Best Animation Film.

US release date: March 15

Life in 1960’s Japan might be seen as idyllic for some. But it’s also a bit stiff, don’t you think? Girls must be good homemakers, cook bentos for their whiny brothers and sisters, serve food at family parties, while boys sail on boats, ride bikes, spearhead debates and strange student clubs; and jump from rooftops. In the end, they really don’t have much choices other than to be swooned by those charming young knights in grey uniforms. Unless… something more complicated happens.

My Rating: 6/10
