Critic Reviews of "The Tale of Princess Kaguya"Time OutMarch 17, 2015
Plays out as a wistful, slow-burning romance, underscored with a streak of social satire and animated in exquisitely subtle pastels and watercolours.Chicago Sun-TimesDecember 04, 2014

One can only hope Ghibli maintains a creative standard as high as his.Chicago TribuneDecember 04, 2014
What makes "Princess Kaguya" stick in emotional terms? Its depiction of an extraordinary girl, learning for herself that a life without real joy and spontaneity is only a shadow of a life.Christian Science MonitorNovember 24, 2014
This delicate, hand-drawn marvel is lyrical and heartbreaking in ways that most live-action movies never approach.Boston GlobeNovember 13, 2014
If there's a message here about the foolhardiness of parental expectations, it fades away in the face of the film's rapturous visuals.Projected FiguresJanuary 26, 2017
Takahata brings his own feminist spin to Kaguya's coming of age, showing how this child of nature is repeatedly kept from happiness by the forces of patriarchy.The Film StageJune 06, 2016
In an era where anime films seem to blend into each other aesthetically, Takahata's impressions seems marvelously alive - its modesty in images makes them feel as if they're being created before our very eyes.El Pais (Spain)March 18, 2016
A mezmerizing display of impresionist animation. [Full review in Spanish]Today's Zaman (Turkey)February 29, 2016
There exists a compelling experiential satisfaction of the closure of a mythical character journey full of ebbs and flows, complexities and emotional introspection, all expressed fully in the compassionate drawings of director Isao Takahata.Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)May 25, 2015
Flurries of expressiveness swirl into subtle shifts in style; it's these fiercely elemental illustrations of one girl's forbearance, defiance and longing which mark Takahata's The Tale of The Princess Kaguya as Studio Ghibli's fourth masterpiece.Fan The FireApril 09, 2015
A hauntingly mesmeric masterpiece that creeps beneath the skin and truly transports the viewer into an enchanting world of myth and magic.
