From Up on Poppy Hill

"From Up on Poppy Hill" proves that 2011 was a great year for Japanese (and world) cinema. Animation is used to show what just can't be shown with live action movies: the past. No need for choreographed violence, or for fantastic plots riddled with holes. A simple story well told without gimmicks. Lofty aspirations without grandiosity. Delicate sentiments without affectation. Nostalgia without blindness to the future. Local roots with a universal message. History without propaganda. A film like that relates us to our span in time and space. The opposite of what America does (at Hollywood). Note: 9/10
