"Your kids may will fall in love with it, if you help them find it. "
- Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"From Up on Poppy Hill is frankly stunning, as beautiful a hand-drawn animated feature as you are likely to see. It's a time-machine dream of a not-so-distant past, a sweet and honestly sentimental story that also represents a collaboration between the greatest of Japanese animators and his up-and-coming son."
- Ken Turan, Los Angeles Times
"Although simpler and less mysterious than the great Hayao Miyazaki movies, the gently melancholic From Up on Poppy Hill is still a must see at a time when family entertainment is too often synonymous with blandness."
- Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
