Fine music score from Joe Hisaishi.

I have to say I find the story line a little fragmented. However, this is more than made up by the animation, mostly done by hands, which at times offer stunningly beautiful imagery. Augmented by a great score, this 2-hour-plus film from the Ghibli Studio offers a great viewing experience.

Unspeakably beautiful film full of spiritual wisdom, embracing the totality of the human experience. This film excels on multiple levels and communicates to all people at every stage of life. I highly recommend it.

Like many of the films from Studio Ghibli, there are messages to learn and the stories told are best appreciated by 10yr old and up viewers. This film shows how good intentions stifle the main character's wishes and wants in order to get ahead in the world.

Yeah, I cried. But hid it well by scratching corner of my eye. Allergies, you know.

Wow, what beautiful music and art work. The story had me pulled in. I wasn't even sure how it would end but I have to agree with muunlight; the ending was so sad I couldn't help but cry! This is defiantly not your happily-ever-after Disney movie but it is a beautiful story.

I agree with muunlight. This was a spectacular movie. Everything about was stunning and beautiful. But the sadness of the story overwhelmed me at the end of the movie.

Unfortunately, I cannot rate this magnificent movie. This had me balling with tears from the end of the movie to my sleep. I understand that this movie was based of an old Japanese folk tale, but I wish this could have had a better ending. Truly I do. I did not like how it ended (that's why I wanted to give it a one star), but this movie is just TOO GOOD not to give it a five star, so that is why I'm not going to rate it.

DO NOT BE FOOLED!

This film wants to make you cry, which it's very good at. While it does have its more lighthearted and funny moments... the ending's the saddest you can possibly get and still be narratively satisfying.
