From Up On Poppy Hill 2013

From Up on Poppy Hill

Critics Consensus

Gentle and nostalgic, From Up on Poppy Hill is one of Studio Ghibli's sweeter efforts -- and if it doesn't push the boundaries of the genre, it remains as engagingly lovely as Ghibli fans have come to expect.

All Critics (87) | Top Critics (31) | Fresh (75) | Rotten (12)

  • A gently lyrical diversion for Ghibli die-hards ... a gentle snooze for others.

    August 12, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It ... arrives with the vast reserves of patience, optimism and artistry we've come to expect from this studio.

  • The incest-scare subplot never trips up the movie's charm. And there's a haunting reverberance, very Hayao Miyazaki, to the war memories that empower the parental back-stories.

    August 1, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Not up there with the Ghibli masterworks of yore, but still a bounty of ideas and emotions.

    August 1, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • You don't watch a Studio Ghibli film so much as sink into it like a hot spring, with groans of delight.

    August 1, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The gorgeous score and subtle visual craft save this entry in the Ghibli canon from mediocrity. But given what the studio is capable of, it's not everything fans will be hoping for.
