Your Name is a sad movie. It has a happy ending and there are funny moments, but it's sad. It's heartbreaking. It's absolutely devastating.

I left the theater feeling as if I had just woken from a beautiful, indescribable dream, desperately fighting to keep it from fading from memory.

Beautifully animated (we're talking Studio Ghibli standards here), Your Name captures that sensation of waking up from a dream you wish lasted longer, or misplacing a name that's still warm on your tongue, but has just departed.

Your Name. is an engaging if saccharine universal tale of self-discovery. It's also a visual masterwork.

It's the rare work of art that can base an extraordinarily powerful moment of emotional catharsis on compulsive boob-squeezing, but that's the miracle of this movie.

Your Name. is a treasure that -- even if the first half hour felt confusing to my own Western-educated mind -- is well worth the investment of a near-two-hour view.

My suggestion is to refuse to let the story get in the way of enjoying the story. Relish the overreach of a mighty talented writer-director-etc.

What separates Your Name from other body swapping movies is its sensitive handling of gender roles, identity, fate, and other lingering themes teens grapple with on a regular basis.

You have to see this movie on the big screen if at all possible. There's a 2001 Space Gate-esque sequence that had me in full hand-to-my-heart mode.
April 12, 2017
An anime body-switch comedy that evolves into a surprisingly moving, edge-of-your-seat thriller.

By the time Your Name reaches its moving finale, the Next Big Thing tag doesn't seem quite enough for Shinkai. He's arrived already.
April 11, 2017
An honest film in its intentions that will enchant those who aren't ashamed of their incombustible teenage heart. [Full review in Spanish]

By the time Your Name reaches its final half-hour or so, the film has moved so far beyond its initial premise that if you think back to the beginning, you'll be astonished by how far it's come.

Stunning but mature animated body-swapping love story.

A male and a female teenager are ... switching bodies Freaky Friday-style. Far from a gimmick, this plot point is used to explore issues of gender and culture in a unique way.

Good things comes to those who wait, and by the time Your Name's meet-cute moment happens you'll already be in love with the film.

Blissfully psychedelic at times with magnetic chemistry between two characters you become completely invested in, Your Name is an anime film unlike any other and is so fantastic that you have to witness all of its beauty and elegance for yourself.

A film that will make you laugh, cry and will make your day happier. [Full review in Spanish]

Your Name is a remarkably bland title for a pretty interesting movie, but Shinkai's effort - based on his own original novel - is a curious blend of two complex genres that elevates both.
