The anime film, which was written and directed by Makoto Shinkai, centers on Suzume, a 17-year-old student whose ordinary life takes an unexpected turn when she meets Souta Munakata, an enigmatic boy who is searching for “a door” to another world, which he must close to avert a catastrophe.

Although the movie was nominated for a Golden Globe in the Best Animated Film category, Hayao Miyazaki’s The Boy and the Heron ultimately won the prize. Suzume’s nomination is still significant even though it didn’t win, and it adds credence to director Makoto Shinkai’s resume. Also, the Indiana Jones actor posing with the chair which is one of the main characters of the movie makes it more memorable.

What is the Importance of a Chair in Suzume?

Produced by CoMix Wave Films and distributed by Toho, Suzume is a 2022 Japanese animated coming-of-age fantasy adventure film written and directed by Makoto Shinkai. The 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami served as inspiration for Suzume. With global box office receipts exceeding $323 million, the movie has emerged as the fourth highest-grossing film of 2022 and the fourth highest-grossing Japanese film ever.

The film revolves around two main characters: Suzume and Souta, a “closer” whose responsibility it is to lock doors to the Ever-After, which leads to the realm of the afterlife. This is because an object known as the “worm” is always attempting to break free from the door, which sets off earthquakes in Japan.

They come upon a talking cat that is the keystone guarding the worm. It turns Souta into a chair with a single flick of its magical tail. Souta is still able to move and speak as a chair, but since becoming one, he has been reduced to the status of a new keystone and is gradually losing his humanity.
