In this Studio Ghibli modern classic, a teenage girl finds herself involuntarily engaged to a cat prince in a magical world where her only hope of freedom lies with a dapper cat statuette come to life.
“Another enjoyable fantasy adventure from Studio Ghibli, the animation house that gave us the delightful Spirited Away (…) Animator Morita has gratifyingly retained Ghibli’s defining characteristics: the superb graphic design (particularly of urban settings), the imaginative wonder and flourishes, the rigorous but un-preachy moral perspective and the embedding of an enriching spiritual dimension.” – Time Out
