My Neighbors the Yamadas by Isao Takahata (1999, 104 min.). Director Isao Takahata tells the story of the irresponsible and lazy Yamada family, and their unassuming way of life. With cartoon-like characters and visual design unlike anything else in the Ghibli Studio canon, the film is illustrated in a series of rough sketches and outlines, which are then filled with soft colors that evoke watercolor painting.
