New Ghibli film promises up beat post war Japan nostalgia

When you think Ghibli and World War II you think Grave of the Fireflies possibly the saddest movie of all time. Thankfully this time around the legendary anime studio has turned its hand to a more uplifting story of a young girl whose hope never dies that her father might yet return from the war. Yet again Disney are distributing the English version with an amazing voice cast including Gillian Anderson, Chris Noth (oh Mr Big!), Beau Bridges and Jamie Lee Curtis.
