    How do you live?

    No one does it like Miyazaki. Felt a genuine childlike wonder watching this unfold. While Miyazaki is undeniably playing the hits here, he isn’t resting on his laurels.

    Started my MIFF with a bang. 

    Beautiful and slow, this builds to a very emotional epilogue which completely floored me. 

    There are a few scenes which are note-perfect. One involves a fish tank. I don’t want to talk about what happens (because spoilers), but it is edited in a manner which makes you feel everything from hope to joy to heartbreak. Really impeccable stuff. Uniformly excellent performances, especially Guida.

    Time jumps work wonders in this film too; large space is left…
