The Tale of Princess Kaguya (Kaguyahime no Monogatari), the new film from Isao Takahata is a strikingly beautiful masterpiece, eight years in the making and the culmination of decades of contemplation. Based on the classic Japanese folktale, The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter, this Studio Ghibli classic will sweep you away with its stylistic simplicity and engaging storytelling.

Found inside a shining stalk of bamboo, a tiny girl grows into an exquisite young lady, raised by an old bamboo cutter and his wife. From the countryside to the grand capital city, even unseen she enthrals all who encounter her, including five noble suitors.
