As far as my understanding goes, The Cat Returns is a sort-of-sequel/spin-off to an earlier Studio Ghibli film called Whisper of the Heart, which I have yet to see but now want to.

It is a lovely little film which I think would sit well with another, though much earlier, Ghibli film My Neighbor Totoro as they are both very much family fantasy films that have wonderful stories. I lov... read more

Since 'Spirited away' is one of my favorite animated movies, whenever I get the opportunity to watch another Studio Ghibli production, I don't miss it. This time, it was not directed by the great Hayao Miyazaki but by Hiroyuki Morita which I had never heard of before but it is understandable since he never directed another movie before or after this feature. Anyway, as usual with Studio Ghibli, th... read more

Description: Studio Ghibli has garnered a reputation for itself as the finest of Animé production houses with films like MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO, PRINCESS MONONOKE, and SPIRITED AWAY. First-time director Hiroyuki Morita joins Ghibli's talented crew with THE CAT RETURNS (NEKO NO ONGAESHI). This follow-up to WHISPER OF THE HEART centers around young Haru, who rescues a cat from being run over. The cat is no ordinary feline, however--he is the Prince of the Cats, and for saving him Haru is brought into the Kingdom of Cats to be his bride. But her feline friends Muta and the Baron may have a plan to rescue her from this unusual fate. Like many of ... (more)

Elokuvapäiväkirja 2018 (194 movies items)

"30.7 Ihan kiva pieni Liisa Ihmemaassa -henkinen seikkailu Ghibliltä, mutta tietyllä tavalla eloton tapaus studiolta, jonka elokuvat ovat tunnettuja elävistä maailmoistaan ja muistettavista hahmoistaan. Päähenkilö Haru on kovin yksiulotteinen tapaus ja jää pahasti Paronin sekä lihavan kissan varjoon. Parhaimmillaan tämä on silloin kun fokus on itse kissojen valtakunnassa, mikä ei ole kuin puolet elokuvan kestosta."

A Complete Review of Hayao Miyazaki's work (14 movies items)

" It was actually directed by Hiroyuki Morita. Hayao Miyazaki has produced this movie. I had never heard of Hiroyuki Morita before but it is understandable since he never directed another movie before or after this feature. Anyway, as usual with Studio Ghibli, the animation was pretty gorgeous but, honestly, I wasn't really blown away by the story. I mean, it was nice, charming and all but, in my opinion, the target audience was, this time, obviously the young children so when I hear people say"

My movie year 2017 (682 movies items)

"5.11. (DVD) Kaverini tuli pariksi päiväksi käymään, joten katsoin aiheelliseksi jotta katsoisimme ihan oikein elokuvan. Osa kissoista oli sympaattisempia, mutta inhimillisesti piirretyt eivät sytyttäneet. Etenkin kunkku, lihava katti ja nörttipoikien mälliä lennättävä rohkea sankarimirri saivat sappeni poreilemaan. Tarinakin oli laimea, vaikka fantastisia elementtejä ja mielikuvitusta toisinaan, esimerkiksi varistikkaiden tapauksessa hyödynnettiin."

Movie Reviews (1251-1300) (50 movies items)

" A sweet comedic entry from Studio Ghibli perfect for cat lovers. Excellent voice actors seems to be the norm for these films, but Tim Curry as the Cat King is an excellent choice. I like the concept and the animations are again top notch. Sadly, I felt it being too short as it ends just when it starts to be interesting. Several unanswered questions to the story and the heroine lacks personality. "
