It's beautiful, but that's the general assumption from anything where Studio Ghibli is involved.

I love this movie. My 9yo dug it too even without any dialog.

I saw this a while ago, and it left so many questions. In a vain hope to find what others saw it as, I got fantasy, bestiality, near-death experience and just enough to realise that was my decision to make.

Beautifully animated, and very rewarding.
