MUBI's take

A simple story spectacularly told, Michael Dudok de Wit’s existential and emotional animated drama is yet another impeccable entry in Studio Ghibli’s unparalleled canon. Magnificently minimalist, a film both serene and splendidly crafted—without words, dialogue, music or special effects.
