When Marnie Was There

So this is the last Ghibli film we’ve gotten, for now, and although on the surface it doesn’t feel as strong as The Wind Rises, I was completely drawn into its story and atmosphere, and enjoyed it just as much as From Up on Poppy Hill, if not more. The main character is one of the most interesting ones we’ve seen in a Ghibli film I feel (flawed in a way Miyazaki’s heroins don’t tend to be), and the Hokkaido countryside setting was so beautiful to take in. It also had a denouement I wasn’t expecting, and quite enjoyed. Definitely one of the best Ghibli films out there.
