A Letter to Momo Reviews
The animation and style of the characters is nice enough, but it's the wonderfully drawn backgrounds with their bright colour palette that really stand out here.
Some may find this a bit too sappy, and there were a few scenes that certainly could lend themselves to that description, but for the most part, it is an entertaining and touching film that ends on a lovely high note.
I also admired the amount of detail that was put in drawing the mannerisms and facial expressions of the characters, as we do see a bit more movement than most of the expressions from Ghibli protagonists.
What was also great about the film was the amount of emotion the narrative had, particularly in the final act as you really felt the connection between Momo and her mother & father.
Overall, A Letter to Momo is a solid coming-of-age Anime film with plenty of emotion, laughs and great animation to boot. I'm looking forward to buying the Blu-Ray and re-watching the film.
