“Sometimes, when I wake up in the morning I’m crying, but I don’t know why.”
THE LEGEND MAKOTO SHINKAI BACK DIRECTING ANOTHER MOVIE THAT’S COMING AUGUST 2016
The story focuses on a pair of high school students, Mitsuha Miyamizu, a girl living in a rural mountain community, and Taki Tachibana, a boy in Tokyo. Though they’ve never met, the two begin seeing each other in their dreams, which sets in motion “a tale of love and miracles.”
The just-released teaser video is short on specifics, but full of the lovingly detailed backgrounds and heart-achingly beautiful use of color that have become Shinkai’s trademarks.
