About A Letter To Momo Blu-ray/DVD

A Letter To Momo was directed by Hiroyuki Okiura.

From the creators of Ghost in the Shell and the director of Jin-Roh comes a supernatural anime classic that combines kinetic humor with deeply felt emotion and drama.​

The last time Momo saw her father they had a fight — and now all she has left to remember him by is an incomplete letter, a blank piece of paper penned with the words “Dear Momo,” but nothing more. Moving with her mother to the remote Japanese island of Shio, Momo soon discovers three yokai living in her attic, a trio of mischievous spirit creatures that only she can see and who create mayhem in the tiny seaside community as she tries desperately to keep them hidden. But these funny monsters have a serious side and may hold the key to helping Momo discover what her father had been trying to tell her.​

A modern treat from the director of JIN-ROH.

by

A LETTER TO MOMO is gorgeous, but better still is its storyline, which, although familiar at times, is told with an honesty and sincerity which makes one wonder if Okiura had been taking lessons from Hayao Miyazaki's MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO. As with that movie, this story deals with a girl who encounters unusual creatures and takes a surprisingly melancholy turn in its second half. The stakes are darker here, though; introverted teenager Momo has recently lost her father after a falling out, with only an incomplete letter left from him. When Momo moves with her sickly mom to Shio Island, she is mortified to discover three gluttonous (and goofy) goblins haunting her attic. These ghosts cannot be seen by grown-ups and harbor magic powers. Some may be put off by the slow pace of the story, but anyone else should enjoy this one. I highly recommend it, both for animation buffs and watchers of sincere family drama.

A Touching and Sensational Feature Film

by -

I also thought "Letter To Momo" could have easily been a Studio Ghibli production, as it certainly has much sentimental aspects that Miyazaki films are known for. The Goblins are amusing, and the Director actually using real sites of the 'Seto Inland Sea' and 'Shimojima Island' as locations for the story made this film all the more enjoyable.

I totally loved the background scenes showcased in this film, it's so scenic/almost realistic, and explains why this film took seven years to complete. My favorite scene is Momo and the Goblins using a 'mono-rack' in a laughable chase scene on a hillside farm to escape from those angry boars...gas included.

A story of family loss, dealing with guilt, and when meeting some strange Goblins/Yokai spirits...changes to fun, understanding, averting disaster, and finally closure for Momo and her mother. Enjoy in 1080p / 1:78:1 widescreen theatrical presentation.
