Overview

Animator Hiroyuki Okiura returns after his 1999 feature Jin-Roh with this story of a teenager confronted by a handful of lively spirits. Momo is a 13-year-old girl who is still coming to terms with the recent death of her father. Momo and her mother have left their home in Tokyo and relocated to the island of Shio, an environment far different from what Momo has known. As Momo explores her new bucolic surroundings and meets her often eccentric neighbors, she frequently hears strange sounds in the house and discovers signs of mischief around the neighborhood. Soon Momo learns that she's being bedeviled by three strange creatures named Iwa, Kawa, and Mame. The curious beasts are actually spirits who are supposed to help guide the soul of Momo's father to heaven, but they crossed paths with Momo en route, and now they are trying to do their job and look after Momo while avoiding being seen by others. Momo e no tegami (aka A Letter to Momo) received its North American premiere at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.
