Global Story Tuned Down To One Lovely Japanese Village
15 March 2005 | by (amsterdam) – See all my reviews

The Music is a very pleasant adaptation of Western Medieaval tunes.

The Magic Realism which Latin America has laid somewhat of a claim to, is lovely used here, of course giving a 'true' Japanese touch to the supernatural stuff.

The scenery and imagery is breathtaking !! And the twin boys, who's story this is, are a delight.

Mama plays great too, and the director has a gentle and good touch for all the other kids, which means he is a fine craftsman.

Soft, laid back, nostalgic and utterly charming, this story is a heartwarming winner, and can't be recommended enough !! What an enormous pleasure !
