Touching and Breathtaking
3 November 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I've travelled half the world before to Ghibli, and when we were planning on going to Japan again this year (2009) I was so excited to go back to Mitaka and see Ghibli's next exclusive for the museum only short, I made sure we added the out of the way leg from Yokohama to see it.

I am a strong man, and only 35, but near the end of the superb emotionally provocative piece the magic of Ghibli overcame me and I found myself both grinning and tearing up.

My wife smiled at me, she knew how much it meant to me to come. Later I brushed away my tears, and admitted to her that to me it was such a special thing, coming all this way to see something very few people would get a chance to see... (It's quite a mission to get to the museum and you need to book a month before you leave your own country with the actual date set in stone...) And of course, it was classic Hayao Miyazaki too... It's so hard to explain that sensation.

Make the effort if you love the director or potentially miss out forever on the experience.
