Synopsis:
After losing her parents in a car accident, Okko (voice of Seiran Kobayashi) goes to live in the countryside with her grandmother, who runs a traditional inn near an ancient spring said to have healing waters. Okko soon discovers there are spirits living there only she can see - welcoming ghosts who keep her company, play games and help her navigate her new environment. Okko strives to be a gracious host, and this is soon put to the test by a string of challenging guests with different stories. But ultimately Okko discovers that dedicating herself to others becomes the key to taking care of herself...

Barely legible subtitles - Okko's Inn review by JC

Spoiler Alert
24/02/2020

Yet another enjoyable magical realist anime, this time dealing with themes of bereavement and mental health. Despite veering dangerously close to becoming overly saccharine in places and pushing the "ganbaru" aspect of Japanese society a bit far, I did enjoy the film. I hated the subtitles though - small white subtitles on brightly coloured images really don't work - hence only two stars overall. I'm not a fan of watching foreign language films dubbed into English, but I really hate the whiny nasal American dubs most anime receive. I wish more effort would be put into creating legible subtitles so more people can enjoy films in their original language!
