The Tale of The Princess Kaguya is one of Studio Ghibli’s finest films, the strikingly beautiful culmination of decades of contemplation by director Isao Takahata. An adaption of a story from the late 9th or early 10th century, it tells the tale of a tiny girl found inside a shining stalk of bamboo by an old bamboo cutter and his wife. The girl grows into an exquisite young lady. From the countryside to the grand capital city, she enthralls all who encounter her, including five noble suitors. The Tale of The Princess Kaguya is the culmination of Takahata’s career.
