    The movie looks lovely, but it's luminous prose. show more

    Even with no wood sprites, witches or spells, there’s plenty of magic in this coming-of-age charmer. show more

    Although I don\'t care for the title, I loved FROM UP ON POPPY HILL. I felt I was in another world and time. And I got the need to hold on to the past in order to handle the future. I felt the drawings of the hill, town and harbor were terrific.
