Makoto Shinkai, 46 min, Animation, Japanese with English subtitles, Japan, 2013

 

When Takao, a high school student dreaming of becoming a shoemaker, skips school one day in favor of sketching shoes in a rainy garden, he has no idea how much his life will change when he encounters the mysterious Yukino. Older, but perhaps not much wiser, she seems adrift in the world.

 

The two strike up an unusual relationship through chance meetings in the same garden on each rainy day. But the rainy season is coming to a close, leaving many things unshared between them…

 

The film has won Satoshi Kon Prize and Audience Awards at Fantasia International Film Festival 2013 and Best Animation and iTunes Best at Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film 2014.
