This movie rates up there with other Studio Ghibli Films. It is of course beautifully animated and well scripted.
I dare you not to fall in love with the main character – Haru a Japanese schoolgirl for whom nothing seems to be going right! I am sure many will be able to relate to the feelings she has about her mundane, unexciting life. How things change for her!!
Quite short compared with other Studio Ghibli films, yet the length of the film does not in anyway take away from the quality of it.
Great for the everyone – easy for the younger ones to follow
