Not really one. Not a fantastic amount happens. We do see, however some excellent character interaction and it does exude a charm which you can not help but fall for.
As you would expect, brilliant.
As in most Ghiblis the music is very good at setting the tone and mood and the voices used are excellent
Good introduction, nothing really happens. There is no growth but plenty of interaction along the lines that were set out form the introductions to the characters.
O.K., good for younger fans. I would still recommend watching this. It has some elements youwill recognise as central to Ghibli productions. It is not quite as good as it is supposed to be though.
