Japan’s Studio Ghibli is perhaps best known in the west as the home base of its cofounder Hayao Miyazaki, but Miyazaki was not the only master at work there. Another Ghibli cofounder was the late Isao Takahata, who directed a number of extraordinary films of his own. This one, about a group of magical raccoon dogs in rapidly modernizing Japan, is among his best.
