Telluride Film Festival: Sunday at the Palm - "A Letter to Momo"
Free. Concessions available. 2011, 120 minutes, Rated PG “Longtime animator Hiroyuki Okiura directs this story about a fatherless girl and her relationship with three goblins on a Japanese island. It received 3.5 stars out of 4.” – Seattle Times "Stunning! As gorgeous as 'Momo' is to behold, the film's sensitive portrayal of a teenager dealing with grief proves its most compelling element." - Variety “A Letter to Momo was seven years in the making, and the handmade animation is superb, from the painstakingly rendered serenity of the island's Shinto shrines to the climactic finale – a frantic chase featuring thousands of squirming, morphing ghosts and spirits that is the best cinematic flight of supernatural fancy in many years.” - Gkids
