The Anthem of the Heart
Sunday, January 29
Anthem of the Heart is a heartbreakingly beautiful anime which was nominated for last year’s Japanese Academy Award for Best Animated Film. Jun Naruse was once a happy girl until a tragic choice of words tore her family apart. As punishment for her actions a magical fairy sealed away Jun’s ability to speak. Though she has resolved herself to this fate, a series of sudden changes in Jun’s life – including being given the lead in the school musical – could now restore her former happiness! A moving combination of opulent animation, gorgeous music and big emotion.
This massive popular and critical hit was directed by Tatsuyuki Nagai.
