YesAsia Editorial Description

Armed with two brushes and four chopsticks, O-Ei (voiced by Anne) and her nutty father can get by anywhere. They don't cook or clean, concentrating only on drawing and painting in their cramped space until it's time to move on elsewhere. O-Ei calls her father Tetsuzo, but you may know him better as Hokusai, the Edo period ukiyo-ye artist who created the iconic The Great Wave off Kanagawa print.

Directed by Hara Keiichi (Colorful), the animated feature film Miss Hokusai, based on Sugiura Hinako's manga Sarusuberi, imagines the life and times of one of Japan's most well-known artists from the unique perspective of Hokusai's daughter, a talented artist in her own right. A smart, headstrong young woman who walked to her own beat in early 19th century Japan, O-Ei assists her father in his work, even going as far as to draw erotica and visit courtesan houses to advance her skills, while also caring for her blind sister and pondering where her heart lies. Produced by Production I.G, the film flows through different episodes of O-Ei and Hokusai's art and lives to create an involving character study filled with intricate themes and imaginative visual flourishes.

Director: Keiichi Hara

The time: 1814. The place: Edo, now known as Tokyo. One of the most densely populated cities in the world, teeming with peasants, samurai, townsmen, merchants, nobles, artists, courtesans, and perhaps even supernatural things.
A much accomplished artist of his time and now in his mid-fifties, Tetsuzo can boast clients from all over Japan, and tirelessly works in the garbage-loaded chaos of his house-atelier. He spends his days creating astounding pieces of art, from a giant-size Dharma portrayed on a 180 square meter-wide sheet of paper, to a pair of sparrows painted on a tiny rice grain. Short-tempered, utterly sarcastic, fond of sweets but with no passion for sake or money, he would charge a fortune for any job he is unwilling to undertake.
Third of Tetsuzo's four daughters and born out of his second marriage, outspoken 23-year-old O-Ei has inherited her father's talent and stubbornness, and very often she would paint instead of him, though uncredited. Her art is so powerful that sometimes leads to trouble. "We're father and daughter; with two brushes and four chopsticks, we'll get by anywhere."

Decades later, Europe was going to discover the immense talent of Tetsuzo. He was to become best known by one of his many art names: Katsushika Hokusai. However, very few today are even aware of the woman who assisted him all her life, and greatly contributed to his art while remaining uncredited. This is the untold story of O-Ei, aka Katsushika Oi, Master Hokusai's daughter: a lively portrayal of a free-spirited woman overshadowed by her larger-than-life father, unfolding through the changing seasons.

A portrait of an artist as a young woman Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
'Miss Hokusai' is a beautifully rendered look at the growth of an artist, with the artist in this case being O-Ei, the daughter of the quintessential Japanese artist Hokusai, as she matures into womanhood and the full flowering of her art.

The film uses delicate strokes consisting of her interactions with others to show O-Ei's growth: with a young man who is attracted to her, a young man to whom she is attracted, the oafish artist apprenticed to Hokusai, the stand-offish, abrupt but caring Hokusai himself, and, most of all, with O-Ei's blind and sickly younger sister for whom she shows a tender love. Counter-intuitively, it is primarily through the relationship with the blind sister that the film brings to life the vibrant city of Edo.

The film succeeds in both the human stories it tells and in its depiction of the obsessive drive which bears fruit in artistic genius. I heartily recommend 'Miss Hokusai', but viewers should bear in mind that this likely was not intended as a children's movie. I recommend that parents view this movie first, before they decide whether to share it with their children.
