Reviews
Mine: Beautiful. The animation is simple yet exquisite, reminiscent of old Japanese water colors. Special thanks go to Hisaishi for the superb soundtrack. Kind of long and a bit slow at times. Still a work of art, if not of great storytelling.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Found inside a shining stalk of bamboo by an old bamboo cutter and his wife, a tiny girl grows rapidly into an exquisite young lady. The mysterious young princess enthralls all who encounter her - but ultimately she must confront her fate, the punishment for her crime.
