Spellbinding trailer for Makoto Shinkai’s The Garden of Words
The latest film from Makoto Shinkai (Voices of a Distant Star, Children Who Chase Lost Voices) is now available. The Garden of Words focuses on the relationship between a young man and an older woman. It seems as though Shinkai is again exploring the distance between two characters which has always been the crux of his work. This isn’t a bad thing by any means since Shinkai is always able to explore distance in such an elegant fashion.
Garden of Words continues the beauty one can expect from a Shinkai film as well because Garden of Words is spellbinding in motion. Having seen the film myself, I can’t recommend it enough and would suggest fans of acclaimed director Hayao Miyazaki to check it out as well.
