If you watch one Shinkai film, make it “Your Name.” As funny as it is heartfelt, the movie takes the body-swapping formula to realistic — and sometimes bittersweet — extremes. As a result of village girl Mitsuha’s innocent wish to live a different life, she begins to switch places with Taki, a Tokyo boy. Unfortunately, while they try to figure out how this is happening, the two kids realize they’re also separated by time, and that a once-in-a-lifetime event involving a meteor has had more of an, um, impact than either of them expected. A bona fide Japanese blockbuster, “Your Name” is romantic, touching, and sweet all at once.
