Reviews:
"Its visual magic lies in painterly compositions of foliage, clouds, architecture and water, and its emotional impact comes from the way everyday life is washed in the colors of memory." - 03/15/2013 New York Times


"It’s all lovely and sweet....Miyazaki’s animation does clear away the extraneous detail, re-creating the world of 50 years ago and instilling it with the poignancy of a family snapshot." -- Grade: B+ - 03/14/2013 A.V. Club


"[A] film about many things...The movie looks lovely...it's luminous prose." - 03/21/2013 Wall Street Journal


"FROM UP ON POPPY HILL is frankly stunning, as beautiful a hand-drawn animated feature as you are likely to see." - 03/21/2013 Los Angeles Times


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The story of a girl grappling with first love, the absence of her parents and the anxieties of an on-rushing future in 1963 Yokohama has all the earmarks of a Miyazaki classic." - 04/05/2013 Washington Post


3 stars out of 5 -- "[L]ovingly styled and touching....Adapted from an ’80s manga, Keiko Niwa and Hayao’s script cannily splices plot strands at the past/present tipping point." - 07/18/2013 Total Film
