A young boy named Kubo must locate a magical suit of armour worn by his late father in order to defeat a vengeful spirit from the past.
Awesome animation. Being a fan of all things Asian, I enjoyed the movie with additional enthusiasm, especially the intimate connection to origami.
I found the premise of souls visiting their living family very similar to my Mexican tradition of día de los muertos. However, I just had a conversation about death with my cousin and I now believe in a physical life and a completely separate spiritual life; my soul will not remember my physical life…what’s the point? My views on death are now very pedestrian: we become worm food.
Visual candy and nice heart-warming story.
