Whisper of the Heart synopsis

Shizuku Tsukishima is an active 14-year-old girl who enjoys reading and writing poetry in her spare time. Glancing through her book check card one evening, she noticed that books in her library were regularly checked by a boy named Seiji Amasawa. Curiosity struck Shizuku, and she decided to search for a boy who shared a love for literature.

Encountering a peculiar cat on the train, Shizuku follows the animal and is eventually led to a strange antique shop, where she learns of a cat statue known as "The Baron". Interested in the store, she unexpectedly finds Seiji, and the two quickly become friends. Shizuku learns while getting to know Seiji that he has a dream he wants to fulfill, much to her dismay as she is still uncertain about her future and has yet to realize her talent. that.

However, as her relationship with Seiji grows stronger, Shizuku becomes determined to work towards achieving her goal. Guided by the words of her heart and inspiration from The Baron, she is determined to create her own potential and dreams.

Whisper of the Heart more review

The strength of Whisper of the Heart is the strength all films that have been touched by Miyazaki seem to have. That is, the details. In this film the things that have impressed me were the little extras that are contained in each characters movements. It's something that you very rarely get—at least this consistently—outside of Miyazaki films. Whether it be reaching for the lamp cord from bed, failing, and needing to sit up to do it properly, or whether it be the normal silences in conversation (as apposed to dramatic silences), everything just feels a lot more real.
