Synopsis


Miss Hokusai
This animated historical drama, set in 1814 Tokyo (then known as "Edo"), captures the lives of legendary painter Katsushika Hokusai and his two daughters via a series of vignettes. While O-Ei, a talented artist in her own right, helps him with his work, O-Nao is ignored by her father due to her blindness. Directed by Keiichi Hara, Miss Hokusai was adapted from the manga series Sarusuberi by Hinako Sugiura. ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

    A decent anime of a family of artists

    This animeis based on the Hokusai family, the famous Japanese artists in the 1800's. However interesting the story is, the movie is mostly fiction as not much was really known about them. The art is excellent, but the subtitles could have been better.

    Hokusai (the father) is probably the most famous Japanese artist ever. His picture of "The Wave" is known around the world. This story is based on his daughter who helped him with his work. Not much is known about ther lives, the anime is based on a manga. While the base facts are true, it takes a lot of liberty in the story. Still, it is very interesting. The art is exquisite but no in the same valibre as "Your Name".

    A fantastic look at the past through the eyes of a not so ordinary woman painter apprentice. A unique presentation of women in late 1800 Japanese society. A look at the past through the eyes of a women. The heroine does not brandish a sword however, her ordinary actions and decisions lead to change and transformation. A must see.

    Didn't quite relate to the story. There is good merit in the animation and the style is quite interesting. I had a tough time understanding the nuances of the film.
