Hey! Has anyone seen this film? I can't believe how underrated it is! According to what I read the film didn't quite draw in the crowds in Japan. It's really quite a lovely film, though. There's just no way you can watch this and not think "That's a lot like my family!". It's upbeat and just so charming. I have to say it's one of my favorite Studio Ghibli films.
