“The latest gem from Mamoru Hosoda is deceptively simple: a young boy named Kun worries about being eclipsed by his newborn baby sister. Through episodic little vignettes, we join Kun on an array of magical adventures with family members from the past, present, and future - a kind of Christmas Carol by way of My Neighbour Totoro. Yukko the family daschund (now a regal human prince) commiserates with Kun over his own status as fallen family favourite, and the would-be interloping infant aptly appears as her future teenage self... An absolute delight from start to finish, Mamoru Hosoda’s family fantasy is packed with true-to-life details that keep it grounded.” - Katy Moon, One Room With A View
