The Yeon Sang-Ho urban thriller is now available to watch -and be impressed.

A feature film about kids and dogs, without ordinary kids and dogs.

Yeon Sang-ho's third feature is no less fierce and violent as his The King of Pigs and The Fake efforts, and wholeheartedly artistic at the same time.

The latest offering from Studio Ghibli is sweet and good-natured, but it doesn't match its previous achievements.

Mizuho Nishikubo's film is a breathtaking drama (but somewhat overbearing) on children and the WWII war.

 English clips from the Oscar-nominated Hayao Miyazaki film.

 Studio Ghibli's co-founder and animation director Takahata Isao directs his new feature film, Tale of the Bamboo Cutter. Watch the first six minutes of the film.

The Wolf Children Ame and Yuki by Mamoru Hosoda is a well-studied, but lifeless experiment on identity and the motive of the feral child.
