Kimi No Na Wa (your Name) Soundtrack

This romantic animated fantasy film sees the lives of two teenagers, Taki Tachibana and Mitsuha Miyamizu, turn upside down after they inexplicably swap bodies.

Ik vind het vooral heel mooi dat de succesvolste film uit Japan uit 2016 ook in Nederland gewoon in de bioscoop is. Dat hoort ook zo. Het is natuurlijk nauwelijks voorstelbaar dat zo’n gelaagde en stilistische film in Nederland zo’n enorme hype veroorzaakt. Zo eenvoudig en toegankelijk is het nou ook weer niet. Het beste van de film, naast de mooie plaatjes natuurlijk, vind ik de flow die in het laatste half uur zit. Bij het verhaal kan je best kanttekeningen plaatsen, zoals dat bij tijdreizen altijd het geval is, maar op een emotioneel niveau werkt alles gewoon heel goed. Erg sterk!


I especially like that the most successful film from Japan from 2016 is also in cinemas in the Netherlands. That's how it should be. It is of course hard to imagine that such a layered and stylistic film causes such enormous hype in the Netherlands. It is not that simple and accessible. The best thing about the film, besides the beautiful pictures of course, I think is the flow in the last half hour. It's okay to comment on the story, as is always the case with time travel, but on an emotional level everything just works very well. Very strong!

How ‘your Name’ Became Japan’s Biggest Movie In Years

Kimi no Na Wa Schitterend. Het is een lange tijd gelden dat ik uit de bioscoop kwam en echt het gevoel net naar iets speciaal te hebben gekeken. Kimi no Na Wa is een animatiefilm die er op de eerste plaats schitterend uitziet, maar ook een verhaal heeft dat beklijfd. Body swap films zijn niet nieuw, maar wat Kimi no Na Wa ervan weet te maken is echt iets bijzonders. Mitsuha is opgeroeid ergens in een klein dorpje in Japan, en droomt ervan om naar Tokio te verhuizen. Taki is een jongen die in Tokio woont, en tijdens een periode dat een komeet rakelings langs de aarde scheert worden ze steeds vaker wakker in elkaars lichaam. Dit levert de eerste drie kwartier een grappige en hartverwarmende film op over twee tieners die zich aan elkaar ergeren, maar ook een band opbouwen. Scènes met het zusje van Mitsuha, die haar zus steeds betrapt op het betasten van haar eigen borsten, en Mitsuha die Taki probeert te koppelen aan een collega leveren komische situaties op. De regie is vlot, de animatie ziet er schitterend uit en ook de muziek is ijzersterk, de eerste drie kwartier is Kimi no Na Wa een zeer fijne filmbelevenis. Maar daarna verandert de toon en begint de film echt grootst te worden. Te veel verklappen zou zonde zijn, maar het enige wat ik kan zeggen is dat dit een film is die iedereen moet zien. De film raakte bij mij precies de goede snaar en ook al krijgt de film een wat donker tintje, het fantasierijke verhaal, de band tussen Mitsuha en Taki, de aanstekelijke muziek en de weergaloze animatie maken het een genot om naar te kijken. Het feel good einde maakt het helemaal af. Dit is de populairste Japanse film ooit en ik begrijp wel waarom. Dit is een modern meesterwerk.

Splendid. It's been a long time since I came out of the cinema and really felt like I just watched something special. Kimi no Na Wa is an animation film that first of all looks beautiful, but also has a story that lasts. Body swap movies are not new, but what Kimi no Na Wa manages to make of them is really something special. Mitsuha grew up in a small village in Japan and dreams of moving to Tokyo. Taki is a boy who lives in Tokyo, and during a period when a comet closes close to Earth, they wake up more and more often in each other's bodies.


In the first 45 minutes this results in a funny and heartwarming film about two teenagers who are annoyed at each other, but also build a bond. Scenes with Mitsuha's sister, who keeps catching her sister groping her own breasts, and Mitsuha trying to pair Taki with a colleague, make for comical situations. The direction is smooth, the animation looks great and the music is also very strong, the first 45 minutes Kimi no Na Wa is a very fine film experience. But after that, the tone changes and the movie really starts to get big. To give too much away would be a shame, but all I can say is that this is a movie that everyone should see. The film struck a chord with me and even though the film has a somewhat dark tinge, the imaginative story, the bond between Mitsuha and Taki, the catchy music and the unparalleled animation make it a pleasure to watch. The feel good ending tops it off. This is the most popular Japanese movie ever and I can see why. This is a modern masterpiece.
