Like its characters, the film's horizons expand further as it progresses, creating an all-encompassing portrait of childhood dreams & the sacrifices we make to commit to them.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

This urban film cuts deep into an aspiring artist's innermost doubts. It's also about what Kondō knew well: apprenticeship, patient dedication to craft and nurturing friendship with other artists.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Perhaps the most unadulterated coming-of-age story in Ghibli's canon... a film of truly excellent observation.

Shame how John Denver appears at regular intervals to remind us of how peculiar a beast cultural diffusion can be.

Instead of attempting to show us a fantasy world with their animation, the filmmakers use their medium to accentuate the small details in this one.
