With his second feature for Studio Ghibli, Goro Miyazaki delivers a sweet, beautiful, coming-of-age tale… and proves that he’s still not in the same league as his dad Hayao.
Set in Yokohama, 1963, narrative isn’t its strong suit, whether it’s the wishy-washy teen love story or the half-hearted campaign to save a clubhouse.
But the delicately observed routines of getting up, cooking breakfast and negotiating the hustle of harbour life provide a wonderful watercolour backdrop.
It might be Ghibli-lite, but it’s a nice enough tide-over until Hayao’s The Wind Rises arrives later this year.
