Only Studio Ghibli is able to merge fairy tales, delightful animation and deeply beautiful character study in such a powerful way
This one gave me such a nostalgic feel. It was beautiful in multiple senses. How it's written, visually, the story and the ending.Beautiful.
This movie shows how dreams are crushed.
