Description

From the legendary Studio Ghibli, creators of Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, and My Neighbor Totoro, comes another animated triumph. Yokohama, 1963. Japan is picking itself up from the devastation of World War II and preparing to hos the Olympics. Against this backdrop of hope and change, a friendship begins to blossom between high school students Umi (Sarah Bolger) and Shun (Anton Yelchin) - but a buried secret from their past emerges to cast a shadow on the future and pull them apart.

    This is my favorite studio ghibli film. From the music to the story and voice actors, it is right up there with the very best.
  • A great story.

    A beautiful story full of discovery and emotion. Like the fact that life sometimes gives you that nudge in a new direction in unexpected ways.

    Stop giving one-star reviews, while whining about the original Japanese versions not being included! You’re bringing down the overall score, which these films don’t deserve, because you’re not bothering to read iTunes’ description, which states under extras that the original Japanese language version of EVERY Ghibli film is included with HD purchase!! I’ve purchased all but maybe three of the Ghibli films available via iTunes, and I can assure you that if you choose “Extras” from the play menu, you’ll find the Japanese version included. These films aren’t under license to iTunes and Studio Ghibli, but typically a third party—n this case Shout Factory—so they have no control over what’s available. Just be happy that Ghibli is available digitally at all! From Up On Poppy Hill is one of Ghibli’s most underrated releases, and one of my favourite animated films of all time. Beautifully executed, scored and written, it’s a classic. Get this in your collection!
  • English language only!!!?
