Sixteen-year-old Haruka is on a mission to find her mirror, a precious childhood gift from her mother that mysteriously disappeared. While following a strange fox-like creature in the woods, she tumbles into a mystical world where once-cherished toys and treasures go when their owners neglect them. Join Haruka and her new friend Teo on a roller coaster ride of adventure as they contend with the island's greedy ruler, who wants the mirror for his own evil plan!

Animation at its very best! The Wonderland that this Japanese Alice goes to is chock-full of the cast-offs of our life, stuffed animals & old toys.. delightful!

Level of animation quality: A+ (beautiful lighting, superior [to american} backgrounds, superlative attention to detail- beats Pixar).
Characterization: Hollywood should go to Japan with their hats in hand to study from these people.
Originality: blows Hollywood out of the water! Even gives Miyazawa a run for his money. A totally unique fantasy world. A delight for children, and a guilty pleasure for the rest of us.
It's billed as YA but that's a stretch - the denizens of its fantasy world are neotenic- rounded/softened foxes, designed to reassure the under-14 set. (More proof: a main character and plot thread is rescuing her teddy bear.) Do you have, or know a pre-teen girl? Get this movie and park her in front of it- she'll love you if you do.
The last half of the movie gets a little confused because it's all battle with the evil Baron so the movie does defeat itself- it's for kiddies (and, perhaps, nostalgic teen girls) but the rapid changes/action are for (slightly) older viewers.
