A subtle, poignant and wonderfully detailed story of adolescence and teenage isolation. Taku and best friend Yutaka are headed back to school for what looks like another uneventful year. They soon find their friendship tested by the arrival of beautiful Rikako, a new transfer student from Tokyo. Rikako is mercurial and manipulative, with a temperament that vacillates wildly, from flirty and flippant to melancholic. When Taku joins her on a trip to Tokyo, the school erupts with rumors, and all three friends are forced to come to terms with their changing relationships. Full of shots bathed in a palette of pleasingly soft pastel colors and rich in the unexpected visual details typical of Ghibli's most revered works, Ocean Waves is an accomplished teenage drama and a true discovery.
