In the year 1963 in Yokohama, an innocent romance blossoms between two high school students, Umi and Shun.

While trying to save a dilapidated Meiji-era club house from demolition, the relationship flourishes. But a buried secret from their past emerges to cast a shadow on the future and pull them apart.

Another great film from Studio Ghibli. As always the music is enchanting and the animation is beautiful.

The softness of this movie reminded me of "Whisper of the Heart" which was also created by Studio Ghibli.

Poppy Hill is beautiful in every way imaginable. Even thought it's not strictly about music, the movie is very much about the music; I would love to get the soundtrack.
