Today, Friday 29 November, the animation masterpiece “El tiempo contigo” directed by Makoto Shinkai is premiering in Spain. It presents the life of Hodaka Morishima, a high school student who lives on a remote island.
Time with you is a romantic story, very much like Shinkai, who is world famous for “Your Name” and who after 22 years takes Japan back to the Oscars with an animated film that touches on a more sentimental global issue: Climate Change.
The story focuses on Hodaka Morishima, a sixteen-year-old boy who leaves home to live on his own in Tokyo, in a summer when it never stops raining. There he will cross paths with Hina Amano, a girl who is capable of making the sun rise. As they both need the money they decide to cash in on her power, and little by little their relationship will get stronger. Until everything goes wrong. Shinkai uses this time the legends of the priestesses of the time, the gods that make it rain or shine the sun and other Japanese mythology to color the story of boy meets girl.
If you are a fan of anime and Japanese culture you can not miss this wonderful film on the big screen, its careful aesthetics and use of colors is worth enjoying in cinemas. We share the trailer >
