    Synopsis:
    Shizuku is spending her last summer vacation in junior high school, reading and translating lyrics of popular foreign music into Japanese, daydreaming of becoming a writer. Lately she finds that all the books she chooses in the library have been previously checked out by the same boy, Seiji Amasawa - Shizuku wonders what kind of guy he is... Could it be that the obnoxious boy she stumbles into could be the guy who's been reading all those books?

    A touching love story with wonderful characters and beautiful artwork, Whisper Of The Heart was the first and only film directed by the late, Yoshifumi Kondo; the Studio Ghibli director seen as the natural successor to Hayao Miyazaki (who penned the script).
