More about the film
When a peasant farmer discovers a tiny girl hidden inside a shining bamboo stalk, he and his wife raise the child to become a member of Japan’s noble class. But the beautiful Kaguya longs only for a simple country life.
The 2013 film is Isao Takahata’s take on Japan’s oldest folk story, “The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter.” It was made using a hand-drawn style reminiscent of Japanese water colors.
