Film: „Your Name – Gestern, heute und für immer“ (Japan 2016, directed by Makoto Shinkai, 111 min, original version with German subtitles)

Mitsuha lives together with her little sister Yotsuha with her grandmother in a small rural town in Japan. She secretly laments her secluded existence in the province and wishes for an exciting life in the big city. Taki would be happy to grow up so quietly, because he lives in the metropolis of Tokyo, spends a lot of time with his friends and works in an Italian restaurant besides going to school. One day Mitsuha seems to have a dream in which she finds herself in Tokyo as a boy. At the same time Taki has a similar experience: he finds himself as a girl in a small town in the mountains, where he has never been before. But how does this fateful entanglement come about and what is the real secret behind the dreams of the two teenagers?

The film captivates with its outstanding style of animation and a story full of poetry and romance that transcends the boundaries of space and time.
