Reviews
Mine: A wonderful tale about adolescence and growing up. The film is beautifully animated and has a style, grounded in reality, but still having moments of magic whenever the two girls meet. Pacing leisurely, especially early when not much seems to be happening plot wise, but hang in there it's worth it.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Upon being sent to live with relatives in the countryside; an emotionally distant adolescent girl becomes obsessed with an abandoned mansion and infatuated with a girl who lives there; a girl who may or may not be real.
