Whisper of the Heart (1995)

Directed by
Yoshifumi Kondo

From Japan's Studio Ghibli, Yoshifumi Kondo's charming film tells the story of bookworm Shizuku Tsukishima, who feels overpowered by her bossy, studious family. She meets Seiji, a boy who annoys and fascinates her in equal measures. Seiji harbours an odd ambition: to make violins in Cremona, Italy. One day, in his uncle's antique shop, Shizuku sees a statue of a cat that could be the inspiration to make Seiji's dreams come true... Screened in the English language version. Part of Film4's Studio Ghibli: The Complete Adventure, which presents the full line-up of animated classics from Japan's legendary Studio Ghibli, stretching the length of the summer holidays and playing in daytime and late-night slots.
