This documentary allows a rare look into the notoriously insular Studio Ghibli, creators of many animated classics, as directors Hayao Miyazaki, Isao Takahata and producer Toshio Suzuki rush to complete The Wind Rises and The Tale of The Princess Kaguya.
“This seemingly ordinary biographical documentary about the retiring animation master unfolds, at a deceptively gentle pace, into a work of immense beauty.”
