The Emotional Ride of the Year
31 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

After having turned into a Ghibli addict a few years ago, I have been a difficult person to impress. I am greatly impressed. Junkers Come Here is a jewel of a story that took me for the emotional ride of the year.

The central character in the story is eleven-year-old Hiromi Nozawa. Her parents are successful professionals who love their daughter, but have little time for her--or for each other. They had been drifting apart over the previous few years and were on the verge of divorce. She has a pet Schnauser, Junkers (pronounced Yoonkers), who has the ability to speak and, as we learn, the ability to grant three wishes.

Rounding out the central list of characters is the family's maid, Fumie, and a level-headed college student, Keisuke, who tutors Hiromi in return for room and board.

Hiromi desperately wants to maintain a normal family, but had long since given up the idea that she and her parents would do something together. When her mother casually hints that she and her husband might get a divorce, she is devastated. She doesn't want to show it, though, as she didn't want to be the source of unhappiness.

Junkers, who speaks only with Hiromi, offers to grant three wishes. Are Junkers gifts all part of Hiromi's imagination? Are they real? Get the DVD and find out. I give this a ten out of ten rating.
