Movie Info

Kun, a little boy, enjoys a happy childhood until the arrival of his baby sister, Mirai. As the new baby becomes the center of his parents' attention, he becomes increasingly jealous. Little by little, he withdraws into himself. In the backyard where he likes to take refuge, grows a magical family tree. Kun finds himself suddenly catapulted into a fantastic world where the past and the present mingle. One after another, he meets his relatives at different ages: his mother, as a little girl; his great-grandfather, as an energetic young man; and his little sister, as a teenager. Through these adventures, Kun is able to discover his own story.

It's the work of a true auteur (in what feels like his most personal film yet) presented as innocuous family entertainment.

A sweet child's-eye view of the world.

I think "Mirai" is, despite its family-size stakes, daring. It's this decision to portray the very real feelings and actions of a jealous child from that child's point of view that makes the film so admirable.

Unabashedly goofy, occasionally treacly, but often enchanting, Hosoda's film captures both the elasticity and rigidness of childhood.

By melding impressively designed fantasy and reality together there's always something surprising around the corner in this Japanese anime.
