Among the innovations of Shinkai’s self-taught, all-digital approach are the director’s signature hyper-realistic backgrounds, which are more than mere paintings, but shimmer and change perspective in ways that the old cel-based techniques never allowed.
5 stars out of 5 -- Shinkai emerges as his own man with this deeply affecting, richly imagined and lushly gorgeous fantasy.
3.5 stars out of 4 -- It’s a beautiful, captivating piece of work that gets off to kind of a rocky start but achieves remarkable momentum toward an emotional, powerful ending. And you won’t see a better-looking animated film all year.
The beauty of YOUR NAME is that, as in the best animated movies, the thin black lines of the character design invariably dissolve, and all that remains are Taki and Mitsuha, thoroughly mixed-up teenagers.
New York Times
The way Masashi depicts wind blowing through grass or a falling star illuminating the sky makes any dream, however convoluted, seem real.
The movie’s spirit is by turns energetic and serene, impetuous and wise, its wild shifts from comedy to tragedy to romance revealing themselves not as tonal swings so much as variations in a larger cosmic pattern.
Los Angeles Times
On the night of a beautiful meteor shower, two strangers -- a male high-school student in Tokyo, and a bored teenage girl living in rural Japan -- discover that they can switch bodies in their sleep when they share the same dream. Now, they must find each other before time runs out, all while learning lessons about what it's like to live as another person. Directed by Makoto Shinkai (VOICES OF A DISTANT STAR, 5 CENTIMETERS PER SECOND).
