Product Overview

From the creators of the Academy Award-winning Spirited Away (Best Animated Feature Film, 2002) comes a tale based on the screenplay from the legendary animator Hayao Miyazaki. During summer vacation, a schoolgirl named Shizuku, who longs to discover her true talents, observes an ordinary-looking cat riding by himself on the train. Intrigued, she decides to follow him. This chance encounter leads her to the mysterious Seiji, a boy who is determined to follow his dreams, and The Baron, a magical cat figurine who helps her listen to the whispers in her heart. Soon, Shizuku's exciting adventures carry her far beyond the boundaries of her imagination. Featuring extraordinary storytelling, enchanting animation, and an all-star voice cast, this 2-disc set will inspire dreams and warm hearts of all ages.

Review "Whisper of the Heart" is unabashedly whimsical and engrossing exploring this girl and her imagination at the same time. She sees life through rose-colored glasses, but is never afraid to approach reality. Calling it a teen romance would really undermine the film's substance and thus I prefer to think of it more in terms of a romance fantasy where everything works out like its supposed to. Usually such idyllic concepts don't appeal to me, but the films so wonderfully made, I didn't really care. And yes, that incredible sunrise in the climax was hand drawn and painted. I saw the American version obviously, and the performances were very well done with Jean Smart, and Courtney Thorne Smith, and a special appearance by Cary Elwes. Harold Gould is very memorable as Nishi, the antique repairman, but Brittany Snow is adorable as Shizuku the humble and wide-eyed heroine who seeks a journey of coming of age, she has a very sweet voice, and also flexes her musical abilities in a rousing musical number where she sings "Country Roads". David Gallagher holds his own in the cast as Seiji, the emphatic violin craftsman who also seeks a purpose in his life. "Whisper of the Heart" may not be entirely one genre, but it works with an engrossing story, well drawn out characters, and a very sweet ending. While slightly drippy and polarizing for a more diverse audience, "Whisper of the Heart" is a great romance that you've probably never seen. It's guiltless, entertaining, well acted, has a wonderful story, unique lore, and beautiful characterization. What more can you ask for? Miyazaki's to be protege would have continued his legacy well.
