Story was a little flat and slow for me, felt more like a Disney plot more than anything else.
Lovely animation, and really nice to look at as with all Ghibli films.

Utterly mesmerising, such a compelling watch.
If you're a bit of a food geek then you'll love this.
For me, this is the perfect Monday night movie - quiet, subtle, and thought provoking.

Films like this just don't seem to happen any more. John Candy you are sorely missed.

An amazing, magical watch that gives you back the imagination you had when you were a kid. Some really beautiful visuals and lovely music. If you can find a dubbed version, this would be a great film for kids.
