Though made by the studio Production I.G, this is a markedly Ghibli-esque affair, overtly referencing Miyazaki's My Neighbour Totoro and Princess Mononoke among others. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/4 -- Despite the hand-drawn film's supernatural edge, one of Okiura's lyrical strengths is acquainting a viewer with the poetry of the real - animated reflections of ordinary, beautiful things we see in everyday life without actually noticing them at all.

Filmmakers of live-action fare, even that which ostensibly is aimed at adults, could learn a lot from its tact. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/4 -- The new anime A Letter to Momo feels like the movie that Hayao Miyazaki's final film should have been. Full Review

Yet the stunning artwork and detailed description of daily life on the Japanese islands sure makes this one worthy of a few visits. Highly recommended! Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- A sweet, heartfelt, yet never maudlin story about an 11-year-old girl's coming to terms with the loss of her father. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- The hit-and-miss English dub flattens some of the dramatic beats, but this is still a rather lovely piece of work. Full Review

Product Description:

Animator Hiroyuki Okiura returns after his 1999 feature JIN-ROH with this story of a teenager confronted by a handful of lively spirits. Momo is a 13-year-old girl who is still coming to terms with the recent death of her father. Momo and her mother have left their home in Tokyo and relocated to the island of Shio, an environment far different from what Momo has known. As Momo explores her new bucolic surroundings and meets her often eccentric neighbors, she frequently hears strange sounds in the house and discovers signs of mischief around the neighborhood. Soon Momo learns that she's being bedeviled by three strange creatures named Iwa, Kawa, and Mame. The curious beasts are actually spirits who are supposed to help guide the soul of Momo's father to heaven, but they crossed paths with Momo en route, and now they are trying to do their job and look after Momo while avoiding being seen by others. MOMO E NO TEGAMI (aka A LETTER TO MOMO) received its North American premiere at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.
