though it crawls along very deliberately, this is one of the most disturbing and beautiful movies I can remember. virtually every shot and sound in this feature was carefully chosen to serve a higher artistic purpose. it's not for everyone, but if possible, definitely take the trouble to see what should be known as one of the finest animated features ever made. it deals with an anthropomorphic cat and the relationship he has with his best friend, semi-autobiographical interpretation of a novel by Miyazawa Kenji, if I can remember right... go see this movie.
