Reviews

Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
One of the most visually inventive films I have ever seen.

Boston Globe - Jay Carr
Its breadth, profundity, and stunningly rendered vision make idealism seem renewed and breathtaking again.
90
Salon - Andrew O'Hehir
A big movie for the ages, full to the brim with sympathy, imagination and sheer visual delight.
88
Chicago Tribune - Unnamed
Rarely does any film, animated or otherwise, immerse you in such a vivid landscape and engage your senses so strongly.
85
TNT RoughCut - Christopher Brandon
Like a lot of anime, it's overlong and gets way too metaphysical at the end, but ultimately, this is a Princess worth worshipping.
