Discovered inside a bamboo stalk, a magical newborn lights up the life of a childless woodcutter and his wife – even if they’re perplexed by the uncanny speed with which she transforms into a charming young lady. Kaguya captivates everyone she meets and bestows such bounty on the family that they move to a city mansion, where she is courted by the most eligible bachelors. But this “princess” is a wild child at heart and yearns for the countryside and the carefree life she once knew. Studio Ghibli’s other anime master, Isao Takahata, bows out with a tender, joyful, and exquisitely crafted folk tale for all ages that will have a long echo, just like his 1000-year-old source.
