We, Japanese, slowly set off on long road to recovery. Altough the fear of further radiation leaks still remains, the overall situation is improving day by day. While there are many patients hospitalized across the country, including my loved one, there are also signs that they are trying to recover amid the adversity and restore hope. With the help of music, i would like to heal and cure their stress, if any.
"Whisper of the Heart" or "耳をすませば" is a 1995 Japanese animated film prodeced by Studio Ghibli. It was the number one Japanese film on the domestic market in 1995. The film also made Terry Gilliam's Top 50 Animated Film list and one of lonlonjp's favourite and unforgettable films. In the film, Shizuku, a junior high school girl, creates translations of the song "Take Me Home, Country Roads" (originally co-written and recorded by John Denver) into Japanese for her school's chorus club. She also writes her own humorous Japanese version of the song, called "Concrete Road", about her hometown in western Tokyo. The songs were actually translated by producer Toshio Suzuki's daughter, Mamiko, with Hayao Miyazaki writing supplemental lyrics. These songs play a role at various points in the story. A recording of "Take Me Home, Country Roads", performed by Olivia Newton-John, plays during the film's opening sequence, as does Yoko Honna's version at the end. (Wikipedia)
