Mai Mai Miracle (Maimai Shinko to sennen no mahô)
The work of a former assistant director to the great Hayao Miyazaki, this lovely tale of friendship and imagination will entrance children and adults alike. Inspired by her grandfather's stories, young Shinko embarks on wild flights of fancy about the history of the little town she lives in. But dreams can't fend off the realities of growing up.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"like My Neighbour Totoro (1988), Mai Mai Miracle sets joyous scenes of pre-adolescent adventure against more serious themes of loss and death, and shows a nation half-unearthing, half-inventing its past in order to work through present problems."
‑ Anton Bitel, Film4
