The last time Momo saw her father, they had a fight. Now all she has left to remember him by is an incomplete letter penned with the words “Dear Momo,” but nothing more. Moving with her mother to the remote Japanese island of Shio, Momo soon discovers three Yokai living in her attic, a trio of mischievous spirit creatures that only she can see and who create mayhem in the tiny seaside community as she tries desperately to keep them hidden. But these funny monsters have a serious side and may hold the key to helping Momo discover what her father had been trying to tell her.

Three mischievous goblins make light of a heavy subject matter. However the main character has good depth and the goblins don’t distract from this. Also you can’t help but notice how beautiful the anime is.

Watch the original where possible. For children the tempo might be a bit slow but it does build up towards the end of the film.
