A small gem of a film
20 April 2018 | by MOscarbradleySee all my reviews

A charming, dialogue-free look at childhood this Japanese miniature, co-directed by Damien Manivel and Kohei Igarashi, may take it's time but there are few films that take us into the mind of a young child quite as beautifully as this one does. If not very much happens, and if what does happen seems a bit on the fanciful side, it matters not a jot for this is a film that will take you back to a time in your lives that for many is only a distant memory; this is the dreamworld of the childhood of our imaginations. Simplicity itself and really something of a small gem.
