Release year: 1995

Director: Yoshifumi Kondô



Rating: 4.5/5

Rewatched: Apr 08, 2013


A film where Ghibli steps back from fantasy (there's still a little here) and science fiction and turns to real life. Its ability to capture attention by introducing curiosity is one of the good things. A little like Tokyo Story does.


Ghibli has always been good at having interesting things happen. Beyond that, just the normal banter between family members and classmates made me feel closer to the world of the film. Turns into a great love story.

"Censorship is telling a man he can't have a steak just because a baby can't chew it."
— Mark Twain


“I divide my officers into four classes; the clever, the lazy, the industrious, and the stupid. Each officer possesses at least two of these qualities. Those who are clever and industrious are fitted for the highest staff appointments. Use can be made of those who are stupid and lazy. The man who is clever and lazy however is for the very highest command; he has the temperament and nerves to deal with all situations. But whoever is stupid and industrious is a menace and must be removed immediately!”
— General Kurt von Hammerstein-Equord
