The Tale of the Princess Kaguya

The classic tale of a space baby who lands in a bamboo field and is raised as a princess by a poor bamboo farmer and his wife. It's like the tale of Superman except way more Japanese and melancholy. The watercolor tones of the art style keep the film looking beautiful and timeless while the story resonates across any cultural boundary.
