    An inspired coming of age story from Studio Ghibli

    Set in Yokohama, From Up On Poppy Hill is a high school love story that take place in the year before the 1964 Tokyo Summer Olympics. As the country begins to pick itself up from the devastation of the Second World War, the new generation struggles to move towards a prosperous future whilst trying not to lose the essence of their past. The film's rich and vibrant animation captures the entrancing beauty of Yokohama's harbour and lush surrounding hillsides and, with a soundtrack that draws inspiration from the finest music of the time, perfectly captures the thrills of young romance and the hope of a new dawn.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Studio Ghibli never fails to impress An interesting story - a bit more adult than some. An unusual approach - seldom seen in an animated film. Very enjoyable.
