  • I love this movie.

  • Weathering With You also explores the myriad effects of climate change on our industrialized society, but I think its message is one of simultaneous resignedness and hope.

  • Makoto Shinkai's sixth feature-length cartoon, Weathering with You, oozes visual lyricism and primal yearning.

    January 24, 2020 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
  • This is the kind of film where viewers can let themselves flow with the film's emotion, or entirely ignore the action and just get lost in the beauty of the imagination. Either way, it's a luscious trip to take.

    January 21, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Vividly contemporary-not an archetypal fable, but rather a compelling yarn about young people trying to live and love in an often hostile world of grown-ups

  • Shinkai... has created another world to lose yourself in.

Audience Reviews for Weathering With You

  • Jul 01, 2020
    Poetry is not a word I use often to describe anything but this work, about teenage love that's wrapped in a bit of mysticism, certainly leans into that realm with exquisite, mind-blowing art and a story that gently reminds us of the tender, nagging ache of first love. And really, what more does any film need than that?

    Beautifully constructed, filled with deep emotions, and endearing with its humor and heart, Weathering with You is a pure delight and a tearfully gorgeous triumph that demands several viewings. It combines romance with apocalyptic sci-fi, urban sprawl anxiety, and millennial angst - and in this way, is an earnest and comforting story for our times.

    Being someone who watches many movies and television shows, Anime films and shows are things that I just never got around to watching much. After watching my first few shows back in 2012, I began to love them. Still, I don't watch nearly as many as I would like, but I do seek out the highly talked about ones. When Your Name hit theatres back in 2016, I was shocked at how much I enjoyed it and I was eagerly awaiting director Makoto Shinkai's next project. Weathering with You is his latest work and although I haven't seen most of his filmography, this may be his finest work yet.  Weathering with You follows young Morishima Hodaka runs away from home and finds himself in Tokyo, Japan. Meeting young Amano Hina, they form a friendship that grows stronger and stronger as he realizes she is known as a "Sunshine Girl" and can control the weather. Tokyo, on the verge of flooding, is not benefitted by the fact that she has chosen to use these powers to clear the skies for money, but also to make people happy. Learning some brutal truths about what her powers lie in store for her, this film takes a turn that feels very much earned by the end. I'm a sucker for a good fantasy film and although you do have to suspend your disbelief in order to believe abilities like this exist (since there's no real explanation as to why she has these powers, to begin with), I found myself incredibly engaged from start to finish. It's the simple moments like when the core characters would be fleeing from the law and settling down to enjoy each other's company that really stood out to me. Yes, the fantastical elements are very much present and are obviously where the movie ends up, but it has a lot more going for it than just that.  If I had to complain about something though, I would have to admit that there were two occasions where songs took me out of the movie. Not to rip on composer Radwimps, because his work here is absolutely wonderful, but the songs themselves were a little overbearing in a few scenes that felt like they should've been slightly quieter and more intense. His score is absolutely stunning and I was swept up in it, but a couple of songs just felt slightly out of place to me. With that said, I really don't have any huge complaints about the film overall.  In the end, Weathering with You is a film that sets up a fantasy storyline and follows through on it from start to finish. It has very likeable characters and I truly cared about each one of them by the time the credits began to roll. For being as grand as it is, I really just found myself appreciating the simpler moments. That's hard for a film to do when so many other things are going on. I loved watching this film and I would even call it one of the best films to hit theatres in 2019, even though it's only reaching certain countries now. Weathering with You is an absolute delight.
