    This movie is fantastic. The landscape, story absolutely awesome. Wonderful and emotional movie and very sad. It is not like the typical kids movies with lots of funny animations but at the same time this movie can be very meaningful to young children. If you are a fan of wonderful animation and appreciate wonderful story telling, I recommend that you watch this movie. It is wonderful in every aspect of film making and you will not be disappointed in this. I truly loved this movie and it deserves all the awards out there.

    It's Ghibli but not Miyazaki. The story felt predictable to me, but it was were drawn. I really didn't like the protagonist at the beginning but by the end she grew on me. This isn't a bad movie, and a friend of mine who is a tough film buff actually enjoyed this a lot more than me. This maybe hit or miss, don't expect a ponyo, cat returns, spirited away, or neighbor Totoro story. Has a bit more serious tone, but not too serious if you now what I mean.

    Such a beautiful story and amazing animation! It really makes you feel like you are there. The story unfolded beautifully showing a great friendship of trust and love. Any young teenage girl that struggled with confidence can relate. It really hit the heart strings for me. I am buying multiple copies to give to my sisters. This one, is one we will want to watch over and over again. LOVED IT!!!!!!!

    Sadly, it appears this movie will be Studio Ghibli's last feature film. Their animes will be sorely missed. I can honestly say that this movie ends their run with a high note, the detail and quality is superb. It is about a lonely girl who moves to regain her health and befriends a strange girl who in the end turns out to be a ghost. The storyline is great and is based on a British children's novel... Highly recommended...

    It's Ghibli so You Need to Watch it

    Don't go into it expecting Spirited Away. This feels like a well-made, low-budget indie film that just happens to be gorgeously animated by Studio Ghibli. That's not to say this isn't a great movie. It takes its time unwinding, and the ambiguity inspires viewer imagination. Watch this one because it is the end of an era, and sometimes you need a good dose of melancholy

    This movie was animated with the quality one would expect from Studio Ghibli, which would make it worth watching regardless. The story is dramatic and emotional, dealing with love, loss, and adolescence. The voice acting is fantastic. This movie is just another in a series of successes for the production studio.

    Ghibli's latest and perhaps last film is a fitting sentimental, beautifully rendered hand-drawn drama that keeps you wondering where its going until the end. Gradually paced as many Ghibli films are, but with a satisfying emotional payoff if you stick with it. If you like Ghibli films I think you should definitely check it out.
