The Tale of The Princess Kaguya review: Rewarding for Studio Ghibli fans

15 March 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Isao Takahata; Screenwriter: Isao Takahata, Riko Sakaguchi; Starring: Aki Asakura, Kengo Kora, Takeo Chii, Nobuko Miyamoto; Running time: 137 mins; Certificate: U

Isao Takahata makes his directorial comeback with The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, his first film for Studio Ghibli since 1999's My Neighbours the Yamadas. The man behind the brilliant, emotionally-devastating Grave of the Fireflies may be in his late 70s, but on this evidence he's still able to conjure up a memorable yarn.

Based on an old Japanese folktale, it centres on a kindly wood cutter who stumbles across a tiny girl living in a bamboo shoot. Taken in by the man and his wife, she's named Princess but earns the moniker Little Bamboo from other children in the village due to her ability to magically grow at speed.

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

"Birdman"

If you enjoyed this Michael Keaton meta fest, the fantastic work of cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki is worth the price of admission. Or, keep re-watching it until you have come to a final conclusion about the ending and What It All Means.

"The Homesman"

Tommy Lee Jones directed this grim Western about a headstrong pioneer woman (Hilary Swank) who volunteers to transport three women who have broken under the pressure of living on the wild frontier. On the way to Iowa, Mary Bee (Swank) picks up a drifter named George (Jones) to help keep things in order. Gruesome, disturbing, and great.

"The Tale of Princess Kaguya"

This gorgeous Studio Ghibli film is based on a folktale about a young girl found growing »
