  • It has jaw-droppingly gorgeous settings, in which all the buildings are depicted with full accuracy, as are the homes of the peasant families who live on a mountain slope, overlooking the (largely wooden) city.

  • An elegant reminder that we can never forget what life during wartime does to the human soul.

  • From the casualties-of-war file comes a gorgeous-looking animated feature from the writer-director Sunao Katabuchi.

  • "Corner" is a deeply sympathetic tale, using the possibilities of animation not just to pique curiosity, but to devastate.

  • [Suzu's] life is treated as thoroughly unexceptional ... except of course it isn't. Besides a heart full of (hesitant) love and a soul full of (bashful) virtue, she has the artist's drive to capture the passing world

  • The painterly beauty of anime detaches the viewer from the terrible events depicted, but it also makes these cataclysms more accessible to the imagination.
