Directed by Makoto Shinkai, «Your Name» is one of the highest-grossing films of all time in Japan. The film follows a teenage girl named Mitsuha who dreams of leaving her small mountain town to try her luck in Tokyo, and a teenage boy named Taki who lives in Tokyo and dreams of becoming an architect. One night, the two miraculously exchange bodies. As they adjust to their new lives, Mitsuha and Taki discover a way to communicate with each other across the vast distance between them—but they long to meet in real life. When a dazzling comet lights up the night sky, it threatens to keep them apart forever.
