Rating: 2/5 -- [Suzu's] life is treated as thoroughly unexceptional ... except of course it isn't. Besides a heart full of (hesitant) love and a soul full of (bashful) virtue, she has the artist's drive to capture the passing world Full Review

IN THIS CORNER OF THE WORLD is as soft as its brown-and-green palette, as romantic as its perpetually blushing protagonist...

Rating: 4/5 -- It has jaw-droppingly gorgeous settings, in which all the buildings are depicted with full accuracy, as are the homes of the peasant families who live on a mountain slope, overlooking the (largely wooden) city. Full Review

The brilliance of this film is that it depicts a world where its people were far removed from the war that this country was actively a part of until they themselves are attacked. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- Like many other anime features, this one isn't exactly for the kids. Then again, it can't be any more detrimental to young minds than something like The Emoji Movie. Full Review
