Not Miyazaki's most memorable film, also not his most accomplished one, and yet it's almost impossible to call out any flaws. It's quintessential Miyazaki, with an idyllic European setting, a simple but loving coming of age story about a young witch and her cat, lushly crafted environments and an overwhelming sense of warmth that makes every scene a joy to behold. A film that has a tendency to slowly fade away over time, but never fails to amaze whenever I watch it again. A true Ghibli classic.
