Like every other work I've seen from Studio Ghibli, this film is compelling, beautiful, visually stunning, poetic, poignant, emotional, and atmospheric. The use of flashbacks is brilliant, every scene with fireflies is brilliant. Really everything about it is brilliant. Yes, I cried. Yes, I loved it. Yes, it's one of the greatest films ever made. No, I don't have anymore to say.
Also, if all goes well, tomorrow, I will be watching Princess Mononoke for the first time in theaters. I'm so hyped.
