All Critics (31) | Top Critics (18) | Fresh (25) | Rotten (6)

  • The hit-and-miss English dub flattens some of the dramatic beats, but this is still a rather lovely piece of work.

    April 30, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A sweet, heartfelt, yet never maudlin story about an 11-year-old girl's coming to terms with the loss of her father.

    September 5, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • It's difficult to imagine any children's movie retaining the attention of its intended audience for two hours, but this movie feels especially monotonous.

    September 4, 2014 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • Despite the hand-drawn film's supernatural edge, one of Okiura's lyrical strengths is acquainting a viewer with the poetry of the real - animated reflections of ordinary, beautiful things we see in everyday life without actually noticing them at all.

    September 4, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/4
  • A sweet tale of a sad girl who moves to a new place and meets supernatural pals.

    August 28, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A striking example of Japanese hand-drawn animation, it casually combines things you wouldn't expect in one place.
