In light of some recent sad news coming out of Japan last week, I wanted to revisit one of my favourite Isao Takahata films, which also happened to be his last directorial effort. The Tale of the Princess Kaguya (2013) is a Japanese fantasy drama directed by Isao Takahata and animated by Studio Ghibli. The […]
