As wonderous and magical as a Ghibli film
15 April 2019 | by louisurreaSee all my reviews

I went in with no idea what the movie was about. I was skeptical since I usually have a tough time enjoying anime films and I worried my fiance and daughter would not enjoy it. It was a fabulous ride. The penguin scenes are both wonderous and fantastical. I left satisfied and wanting to purchase a copy to show others.
