Liz and the Blue Bird is the latest film by director Naoko Yamada, following her critically acclaimed A Silent Voice which touched the hearts of audiences around the world. The film is based on the novel Sound! Euphonium by Ayano Takeda, the basis for the beloved anime series of the same name produced by Kyoto Animation, the makers of Liz and the Blue Bird.
Mizore Yoroizuka plays the oboe, and Nozomi Kasaki plays the flute in Kita Uji High Schools concert band. As seniors, this will be their last competition together. The selected piece Liz and the Blue Bird features a solo for the oboe and flute. Theyre supposed to be best friends but the oboe and flute solo sounds disjointed, as if underscoring a growing distance between them. Talk of college creates a small rift in their relationship, as the story evolves to reveal a shocking and emotional conclusion.
