so maki and i were finally able to watch eiga sai at shang this year… maki always has great timing and we were able to catch the only animated film in the eiga sai line up which is mai mai shinko to sennen no maho, here’s the trailer…

when you translate it, it means mai mai shinko and the millennium old magic… although they shortened the english title to mai mai miracle. it’s a beautiful film, it was able to charm the kids around, including me, hehe. but just like tonari no totoro, it also appeals to the not so young ones.

the story revolves around the friendship of two nine year old girls namely aiko shinko, a lively country girl with an ozummm imagination, and shimazu kiiko, the quiet one who just came from the city. they have different personalities that reminded me of my friends, and how each one of them is a different world… and this adds to my further love for this film.

everything in mai mai miracle was magical in a way that’s not hocus pocus. it dealt with the simple things in life, like trust and friendship, having a leap of faith, and it even showed death with so much grace… true magic you know. it’s the best thing i’ve ever watched in a while, i don’t even have a favorite scene because i loved them all! looking forward to watching more eiga sai in the up film center soon!

yun lang.
