Synopsis

Fans of Studio Ghibli will know that Japanese animation excels at the fantastical, but this anime from Satoshi Kon also shows skill at handling modern real-world problems. Homeless trio - alcoholic Gin, runaway Miyuki and transvestite Hana - have been brought together by their unfortunate circumstance. When they find a baby on the streets of Tokyo at Christmas, they decide to return it to its real mother - but completing their good deed isn't as simple as they imagined.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
