    Mary and the Witch's Flower has the high standard of animation you'd expect from Ghibli alumni and starts with a truly surreal sequence, but it soon settles down. Perhaps too much. The story of a young girl filled with insecurities but soon to come into her own thanks to a witchy adventure isn't new - not to Ghiblians certainly - and neither is the school of magic (Harry Potter), the twin cat familiars (Sailor Moon), or the nightmare fuel finale (which reminded me of Akira). But the remix isn't unpleasant, and there are some real flights of fancy in the design. I would say this is pitched at a younger audience - the psychologies are definitely more simply drawn - but that it contains intense and disturbing imagery younger kids may find frightening, a fact mitigated by how benign the plot turns out to be, with resolutions to sooth the most sensitive souls. Perfectly fine, with some lovely cat action and a strong look, but perhaps pales in comparison to the films it tries to imitate. 3 months 1 week ago

    A cute film with gorgeous artwork, but the plot really left something to be desired. I don't know what I was hoping for, but I was rather disappointed with it. 3 months 2 weeks ago

    Pretty and cute but the narrative was nothing special. 5 months ago
