The poorly-written story cant be saved by good graphics
Save yourself the time and bother and watch something else: I wouldn't recommend this for either kids or grownups.
After my child and I finished watching it we were not only unimpressed, we were actually a bit angry at the meandering story-line and the lack of explanation of certain actions. Now I should add that we watched the English dubbed version and so I was prepared to consider the possibility that the script was badly translated or that the dialogue was delivered in a way that it wasn't in the original. However, even if I was watching it on mute I would see the story repeating potentially emotionally powerful scenes and rendering them irritating.
I cant reveal which bits were repetitive or irritating without spoiling the film but I was amazed that no one in the creative process thought to edit the story a bit tighter. And yes, I do get that since this is a story about the afterlife we were going to be asked to accept certain rules about that world, but the story bores us by repeating these rules over and over and insisting that we couldn't be told the reason behind the rules. You end up with a world where blind faith is expected and their parallel to a God is pretty OK with vengeance and violence. (Good to know, hunh?) Given that the subject matter is children's experience of bereavement, they had a greater duty towards making the story less convoluted and confusing.
