"Momo is entertaining for all ages."

Purchased on Mighty Ape

The 2011 anime movie (with English dialogue) compares well to other anime from the likes of Ghibli, where in a real-world setting a young girl comes to terms with problems in her life. In this case, she has lost her father, leaving things unsaid. Resolution comes by way of a trio of awkward and poorly house-broken traditional Japanese goblins. The backgrounds are as good as any of Ghibli's, representing real locations. The animation of the characters is natural and convincing, and (goblins aside) they experience familiar situations. Deserves a place alongside “Totoro”, “Whisper of the Heart” or “Only Yesterday”.

Description

A Letter To Momo

The last time Momo saw her father they had a fight – and now all she has left to remember him by is an incomplete letter, a blank piece of paper penned with the words “Dear Momo”. Moving with her mother to the remote Japanese island of Shio, she soon discovers three goblins living in her attic who have been assigned to watch over her, and may hold the key to helping Momo understand what her father had been trying to tell her.

Reviews

“A striking example of Japanese hand-drawn animation, it casually combines things you wouldn't expect in one place.” – L.A Times

“A beautifully connected film on a spiritual level. Overall, Okiura stays very focused on Momo's emotional journey, which is smart.” – RogerEbert.com

“As Momo conquers her fears, averts a tragedy and finally sees the beauty of her surroundings, the movie grabs your heart with the softest of hands.” New York Times
