At the same time, it was still a time when it was the "Good Old Days" with the Japanese way of respecting loyalty and compassion, caring for the neighbors, and enjoying nature were still present. The children of the town ran around energetically as the adults affectionately watched over them. The port town of Hofu in Yamaguchi Prefecture, provides the setting of this film, as a sprightly and vibrant story of a little girl's friendship, discoveries and growing-up, are subtly but powerfully portrayed through exquisite animation.The story is based on the idiosyncratic autobiographical novel "Mai Mai Shinko," by Nobuko Takagi, winner of the prestigious literature award - Akutagawa Prize. Madhouse, one of Japan's foremost animation studios ("The Girl Who Leapt Through Time," "Paprika") put together her imaginative schoolgirl era with gifted director Sunao Katabuchi (acclaimed director of TV animation series "Black Lagoon", and assistant director of "Kiki's Delivery Service"), who studied under Hayao Miyazaki, into a beautiful and energetic animated film. A heartwarming story that revolves around the friendship of a young girl is depicted in this animation that overflows with elements of fantasy.就讀小三的新子,從小到大都住在周防市,她額頭上總有一撮怎麼壓也壓不平的「咩咩」,總喜歡纏著祖父問東問西,聽他娓娓說出這個城市中潛藏著不為人知的古老歷史。新子閒時最愛跑到一千年前已存在的小路與溪畔奔跑嬉戲,以豐富的想像力在幻想世界彷彿能親眼看見千年前的生活姿態,更在那裡看到一名跟她年齡相近、身旁卻沒有知心好友的孤單少女諾子,雖然居住在富麗堂華的城殿裡,卻總是只能一個人孤獨玩耍。後來,一個來自東京的島津貴伊子轉校到周防市,伊子對城市的一切都感到陌生,而且與同學們更顯得格格不入,總覺得孤苦伶仃,後來受到新子的熱情感染成為好友,兩名少女的性格一動一靜、正好互補,頓時成為莫逆之交,也逐漸打開了貴伊子在喪母後緊閉的心房。二人更結伴與其他同學一起去探索千年前周防市的神秘國度…沒想到因為一場無心的意外,竟將她們捲入了一場不可思議的冒險旅程……為了大家的夢想,新子決定不惜一切保護它

Not for small children
Not because of any negative effect it could instill on small children but it would be hard to instill nostalgic feelings in them. Adults on the other hand would enjoy more if not for the kiddy style story telling.

Beautiful film
A very sweet film that echoes elements of My Neighbour Totoro and Only Yesterday. The premise is the familiar tale of childhood friendship, but I found the best parts of the film in the little details. Stopping at the level crossing to hear the vibration of a distant train through the tracks. Considering a box of coloured pencils a luxury in post-war Japan. Swimming through a rice field as though it were a lake. Recommended.

Wonderful animation, and fantastic story.... but I sort of got annoyed with our local movie rental place as the person recommended this film for small children.
