Another jewel from Japanese filmmaker Makoto Shinkai, "The Garden of Words" is a love story with no sex, a romance with no dating and, above all, a beautiful ode to shoes. Yes, shoes. Shoes in this lovely film are a metaphor for how we move through life, how we accompany one another or leave each other to our loneliness, how we connect with the earth, others and ourselves. And the animation is as delicately gorgeous as the story; take a look at our G.O.W. collection and you'll see what we mean.
