san’s review published on Letterboxd:
Even at thirty or so years later, Studio Ghibli’s animation is still more vibrant and lustrous than most family movies today — passion and ingenuity are keywords to this. It’s also thanks to Miyazaki, who has an undeniably rare and crazy depth for creativity. I just can’t wait to discover more of his other works.
The movie has no beginning or end, yet nothing feels like a waste of time. It’s wholesome, it’s engaging, and it grants you a sense of joy and hope. It truly knows how to warm you up.
