Kaguya-hime no monogatari
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 enthralls all who encounter her, including five noble suitors. Ultimately she must face her fate, punishment for her crime.The Tale of The Princess Kaguya is the newest film from Studio Ghibli, and the strikingly beautiful culmination of decades of contemplation by its director, Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata.
Born in 1935 in Mie Prefecture, Japan. After graduating from The University of Tokyo with a degree in French literature, he joined Toei Animation Company. He co-founded Studio Ghibli in 1985 with Hayao Miyazaki and has directed five feature films since: Grave Of The Fireflies, Only Yesterday, Pompoko, My Neighbors the Yamadas and Kaguya-hime no monogatari.
