quite disappointing - The Cat Returns review by BW

Spoiler Alert
26/04/2018

Having really enjoyed many other Studio Ghibli films, I'd hoped I'd like this one too, but no. Plot line is rambling, almost as though they were making it up as they went along. Sadly, the least appealing Ghibli film I've encountered.
