Described by Ghibli president Toshio Suzuki as a film "showing what it's like to live as a Japanese," Yamadas is a radical break from the usual Studio look. Completely digital, the film resembles a moving water-colour, with simple sketches and outrageous cartoony designs concealing ground breaking techniques in the handling of background washes. 

Divided into a number of episodes revolving around an eccentric but tightly knit family, the film was adapted from a newspaper gag-strip by Hisaichi Ishii. The distinctive look was partly inspired by German born animator Frederic Back (The Man Who Planted Trees).

1999  Dir. Isao Takahata  104 min.
(In Japanese with English subtitles)
