I took my little girl to see this yesterday and we just came away feeling, confused, delighted, surprised, and curious. It's a fantasy about natural law and attraction through the eyes of a child, and how it transcends perceived reality. It's spontaneous in it's flights of imagination. Moving through different shades of humor, horror, sorrow, and warmth to delirious heights of absurd humanity. My favorite Studio Ghibli. A fairy tale for all ages!

Saw it last night and really loved it. It's definately Miyazaki's most kid-geared movie...but it was a beautiful experience.

The animation is simply breath taking. It's like opening a hand drawn picture book, brimming with that awe spun curiosity that slowly deteriorates as you grow older. Seen from the eyes of child, but with some heavy ideas going on as well. One of the years best!

We saw it opening weekend I believe. We were babysitting my sister-in-law and needed a movie that was kid friendly that we could enjoy too. My husband really liked it, I loved it and I believe lil sister-in-law liked it quite a bit.

Beautiful movie, I love the type of anymation they used. Having grown up on dubbed Japanese cartoons, this was right up my alley.

I'm really excited about seeing it in it's original form when it hits dvd. The story was supposed to be altered (to what extent I'm curious) with the dubbing. It's a film where any little nuance can make a world of difference.

While I generally do like Miyazaki, I think I'm gonna skip this one.
