Director Isao Takahata is well known as Hayao Miyazaki's once mentor, and present Ghibli partner. Like Miyazaki, he's highly acclaimed for his distinguishing filmmaking style. "Omoide Poro Poro," a gentle, rich and moving film from Takahata, is considered by many as one of his masterpieces, and it comes to DVD with a bonus disc packed with extras. The movie is set in the summer of 1982, and it tells the story of an office worker in her late twenties named Taeko who takes a ten-day leave from work to visit the countryside. Along the way, memories of her childhood come flashing back into her mind... Her story is funny, exhilarating and poignant at the same time, and delights us the audience in much the same way "Tonari no Totoro (My Neighbor Totoro)" does. Special features include a 46-minute Making-of featurette, storyboard, and theatrical trailer(s).
