"A well-executed piece of hand-drawn animated drama film!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Thanks to the Father & Son lead collaboration on the film (Hayao & Goro Miyazaki), Studio Ghibli has shown to the world that they can keep the traditional-animated film alive by providing us another visually-gorgeous, romantic drama film, with added original Songs that's so lovely to listen to.

Highly recommended for all!


A high school love story in the year before the 1964 Tokyo Summer Olympics as Japan begins to pick itself up from the devastation of World War II. A new generation struggles to move towards a prosperous future whilst trying not to lose the essence of their past. Capturing the beauty of Yokohama harbour, Umi and Shun's budding romance develops as they join forces to save their high school's ramshackle clubhouse from demolition.

From Up On Poppy Hill Movie Reviews

“It's a natural tendency to try to figure out where a new Ghibli release ranks among the rest of the studio's impossibly brilliant body of work, but try to resist those urges and take From Up on Poppy Hill on its own merits. It's not an awe-inspiring fantasy. There's no spectacle or incendiary action to be found. There's not even the usual sort of dramatic heft. Still, this is a lovely, sweet, and very sincere film, one that's made stronger by its simplicity and straightforward nature. I'm hopelessly smitten with From Up on Poppy Hill, and I'm clearly not alone…This is such an underappreciated film that more than deserves to be discovered..Highly Recommended.” DVD Talk

“In more ways than one, From Up on Poppy Hill is an entirely lovely film. Moving, thought-provoking and charming, it's a huge step forward for Goro Miyazaki after the misguided Tales from Earthsea. Recommended.” DVD Verdict

“From Up on Poppy Hill” might initially come off as inconsequential, yet it actually isolates what Studio Ghibli does best: constructing an evocative landscape of vivid personalities scrambling around a compelling conflict dusted with idiosyncrasy and visual poetry…it’s a serene viewing experience with natural turns of conflict and a fluid sense of storytelling, capped with a satisfying, sentimental ending. Although they’ve dabbled in earthbound matters before, Studio Ghibli serves up a refreshing reminder of their singular animation gifts, offering a spare but endearing effort that’s absolutely enchanting.”
