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.

Village Voice
This film's gentle storytelling manages to extract the emotional payoffs of melodrama without ruining one's suspension of disbelief. Full Review

This movie...is a lovely example of the strong realist tendency in Japanese animation. 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. Full Review

It’s a film heavily dependent on tone and atmosphere for its charm, the budding relationship shown through things like a lovely twilight bike ride down a hill to the shops below. Full Review

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

The A.V. Club
It’s all lovely and sweet, and while this story might’ve been just as engaging in live action, 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. Full Review
