Why watch this film?
Makoto Shinkai had already established himself in the world of anime cinema (thanks to movies like "The Garden of Words"), but it was with the international phenomenon of "Your Name." that he achieved renown in various corners of the world. At the same time, this raised higher expectations for what would be his next project, "Weather With You". The movie fits in the same line of romantic fantasy as its predecessor, with afflicted teenage characters and the climate itself turned into a character. It might be less impactful than the acclaimed "Your Name.", but it is still a powerful drama and visually enchanting.
