A Truly Wonderful Film

by

This film is a must have for for fans of Studio Ghibli or animated films in general. The animation is so fluid and beautiful at first glance it looks straight from Dreamworks or Disney. While there is no dialogue,it's not necessary at all. The visuals and music more than make up for it when it comes to the storytelling and setting the atmosphere. It also has a little vibe of the original "The Little Mermaid" story, as to why you'll have to see for yourself. The actual story also brings some conflicts that can bring suspense and dread the first time watching, but in a good way. The ending is a real tearjerker, in both a sad and happy way. Just thinking about it can brings tears to ones eyes. This is definitely a fantastic addition to anyone's collection.
