An incredibly realistic depiction of young teenagers falling in love. There is some great stuff in here about teenagers having ambitions and ideas that they may be too young to pull off yet. The movie shows how the parents let the children discover their limits on their own.

All ages, however, it is very slow going, and is less likely to be appreciated by anyone under 9 or 10.

Great movie. Nice, simple and sweet. I love Studio Ghibli movies! They're always so sweet and innocent, and I love the fantasy element in them. I loved the story of the Baron, and I fell in love with Seiji! A proper type of hero.

I totally enjoy all of the Hayao Miyasaki and Studio Ghibli films. The anime and story lines are great for any age and i loved watching them with my nieces as well.

The beginning was good, the ending was... incomplete. I didn't expect that sort of ending but overall, the movie was pretty good

Even though Hayao Miyazaki directed the film, this is not his original story. The man who wrote the story had died before animation began, so Miyazaki took over the film. It's an amazing story nonetheless, and a must watch for Ghibli lovers. A bit slow at times, and it's definitely more focused on the drama.

This movie is touching and so detailed! I love the characters and how they ponder on subjects that all of us do and how we get a glimpse into the Japanese lifestyle. Hayao Miyazaki has made a master piece that every fan of his should watch.

A delight for the young and the young at heart. So well executed. Hayao Miyasaki is brilliant. Ponjo was another of my favorites.

Other: Language and sexual issues; mild but still not the greatest. Shizuku, after being annoyed with Seiji (after she not formerly met him) repeatedly says, "Stupid Jerk!" as she walks home. A woman is shown in her bra.
