Well, an extremely rare PERFECT score on Rotten Tomatoes and it doesn't disappoint... at first I was taken aback by the lovely visuals and animation style, then the story, then finally, just when I thought ________ the film punched me in the heart and made me cry. Don't you dare look up this film if you have interest in themes of traditional Japanese culture and stuff are thinking about seeing the film and don't already know of this ole folk tale. Run, don't walk to go watch it. It's much, much better not to know ahead of time what to expect. Thank you, Studio Ghibli!
It's totally cute and I can relate in many ways, like that the characters are MY AGE (28) and sorta spinning their wheels. Would have loved for the first act to be a bit longer though. More Leighton/ Gillian BFF times before the conflict comes in.
