Personally this little movie will always have a special part in my heart. I'm so glad that I kept delaying to watch it, because when I finally did it was in a moment in my life where I could relate to almost everything the main character was going through. Finally stopping for a moment to actually question about your life and if everything that happened until now had any meaning is something everyone have to go through sometime in their lives, and this movie portrays it simply beautifully.
Good movie, although it's obviously more relatable to women, but still I liked it very much.
Besides the main themes of the film there were many enjoyable little moments that can only be found in Ghibli films, such as the pineapple eating scene (it reminded me of the times when our family tried a coconut for the first time, I had the same reaction) :D.
It's not among my favorite Ghibli films - and I could have done without the painfully saccharine song at the end - but it's still pretty wonderful.
