Two sisters and their father move into a Japanese country side inhabited by giant stuffed animals. There’s no real conflict in the movie, no “bad guy” no evil corporation/government, it’s just kids being kids and getting upset about the things that kids get upset about. It all adds up to something refreshingly pure and definitely worth watching.

This is an amazing movie! Miyazaki movies range from ones with lots of bizarre plot points and artificial conflict (like “Spirited Away” and “Howl’s Moving Castle”) to ones with super simplistic plots (like “Kiki’s Delivery Service” or “Whisper of the Heart”)…and this one is definitely the later. Hardly anything happens in the first 30 minutes, but at the same time it’s completely engrossing. I saw this in a theater full of children and probably felt as much glee as they did.
