This is a magnificent film that is very close to cinematic perfection. It is phenomenally beautiful and gorgeous. It is a tremendous Miyazaki effort that should be watched by everyone.

Beautiful animation and a unique story, but I did feel it was a bit long. Still good though.

Honestly, I'm a bit shocked that this isn't the highest rated animated film or at least in like the top 50 or so like it is on other sites like Letterbox or IMDB. IMO, this is the best animated movie, 'nuff said.
