What a beautiful, wonderful film about a mother's love. It was honestly a privilege to watch this masterpiece. It almost even beats Howl's Moving Castle for me!

The story is a little simplistic and slow moving, particularly to start, but very sweet and some of the scenery is beautiful.
I'll watch it again!
