It’s safe to say that ‘Weathering with You’ proved to be another successful outing from Makoto Shinkai.
While it never lived up to the acclaim of ‘Your Name’, the follow-up still managed to capture the emotional beats we’ve come to expect from the Japanese director, earning positive reviews – including from us.
The film’s success could also be credited to the musical score composed by RADWIMPS, who have also returned to add another tear-jerking layer to Shinkai’s work.
And as ‘Weathering with You’ officially starts its Oscar-qualifying run, the Japanese rock band has finally dropped the full soundtrack, including an English version of the main theme song ‘Is There Still Anything Love Can Do?’
Much like its Japanese counterpart, the song perfectly encapsulates the main conflict of the film which *spoiler alert* sees teen runaway Hodaka fighting against the odds to rescue Hina from an undesirable fate.
