5. The Tale of the Princess Kaguya
Among all the star studded premieres at Cannes, Director Isao Takahata quietly premiered his first feature film in 15 years at Cannes. The look of the film is very unique and can be best described as watercolor in motion. The film has already seen a successful release in Japan, but its worldwide release is pending. Takahata is most famous for his seminal anti-war classic “Grave of the Fireflies”, he has always experimented new styles with each project, from “Pom Poko” to “My Neighbor Yamadas”, this film seems to be an effort in the same direction as he expands the creative gamut of Studio Ghibli.
