Hayao Miyazaki’s long-awaited film “How Do You Live?” has broken the box office collection record in Japan, grossing over $13 million in its opening weekend.
The film, which is Miyazaki’s final feature film, has been met with critical acclaim, with many reviewers praising its beautiful animation, heartwarming story, and thought-provoking themes.
‘How Do You Live’ Breaks Box Office Collection Record
The film’s success is even more impressive considering that it had very little marketing. Studio Ghibli, the film’s production company, opted for a low-key approach, believing that word-of-mouth would be more effective than a traditional marketing campaign. This gamble paid off, as audiences flocked to theaters to see the film.
“How Do You Live?” is a coming-of-age story about a young boy named Seita who moves to the countryside with his aunt and uncle after his mother dies in a fire. The film follows Seita as he struggles to adjust to his new life and come to terms with his mother’s death.
In addition to its heartwarming story, “How Do You Live?” also explores some deeper themes, such as the importance of family, friendship, and community. The film also touches on the environmental impact of modern society.
“How Do You Live?” is a powerful and moving film that is sure to stay with audiences long after they have seen it. It is a fitting swan song for Hayao Miyazaki, one of the greatest animators of all time.
What makes the film’s box office success even more impressive is that it was released during a time when Japanese theaters were still struggling to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. The fact that the film was able to overcome these challenges and still achieve such success is a testament to its quality and the power of Miyazaki’s storytelling.
“How Do You Live?” is a must-see for fans of animation, coming-of-age stories, and Hayao Miyazaki. It is a film that will stay with you long after you have seen it.
