Every frame of this film is like a piece of art! Such a moving tale of environmentalism and feminism.

What are critics saying?


Variety by Robert Koehler

Miyazaki’s first hit fascinates as a glimpse into the master’s then-developing style, even when the final-act storytelling gets woozy.


The A.V. Club by Tasha Robinson

The film is good-hearted, energetic, and full of Ghibli's characteristically beautiful hand-rendered animation, but it's also lightweight and hyper, with none of Miyazaki's more resonant themes.
