Miss Hokusai


It was a pretty great movie watching weekend for me, as I also watched the fantastic Miss Hokusai. I’d been meaning to watch it for quite a while, and I don’t quite know why it took me so long. Beautifully animated, it revolves around the daughter of uber famous Japanese artist Hokusai — she was an accomplished artist as well. It mixes a bit of fantasy with the reality of the setting, in a way that helps accentuate some of the emotional beats nicely. Really enjoyed it.
