Beautiful
30 October 2006 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

This film is one of my enduring memories of Tokyo and Japan, sitting in the museum watching this film is something so special that I think it should be kept there. I'm not elitist, but I think some gold pots need to stay at the end of the rainbow, I'm sure that's the way Miyazaki sees it. Anyone that makes that extra trip to the edge of tokyo deserves a treat to be found nowhere else on earth, and this is it. There are some who who will not get to see it for a while but in time I'm sure it will be released for all to see. The characters are endearing, funny and thought provoking and the storyline is of the highest quality, something we have come to expect from the worlds greatest animator. I hope lots of people will make the effort to get there if they set foot in Japan, it's worth the metro ticket, trust me.
