Critics reviews

The film looks simpler than anything Miyazaki made since his early days in television, with a fuzzy, handmade design that evokes a young child’s view of the world. . . . This may be the most straightforward of the director’s ecological fables, but the straightforwardness fits with the gentle, childlike sensibility of the storytelling.
