Format: DVD
Offbeat and original (mostly live action) film by a Japanese animator. It is essentially atmospheric with very little plot or dialog. Two elderly sisters (who could have been created by Beckett) collect junk and fill their house with their finds. One day they find a bunch of red wool and take it home not realizing that a little girl is literally and metaphorically attached to it. She intrudes into their home and knits, destroys, and reknits herself a sweater/dress... and changes their lives. That's pretty much it but you have to see it to be cast under its spell.

OK, after the worthless 1-star review by the guy who got a bad DVD, I thought I'd chime in about the actual movie...

I'm so glad Amazon has this so I can order it, I want my family to see it. It's a pretty lively flick, but really, really weird. It's not going to be for everyone, it's quirky rather than horror or action, with some rather bittersweet moments.

It's the story of 2 very strange old ladies who wall themselves off from life with their ever-growing collection of found junk. One day though they collect the wrong thing and it has a young girl attached, who enters their home and their lives and endless ruckus ensues. Bit by bit the old ladies are reminded of what young girls are like and recall that they too were once that way. It's a charming, cute, sweet (mostly) journey of ravelings and unravelings, and it really tickled the heck out of me to watch it.

So... it's not gonna change your life, it won't make or break your movie watching career. But it's a really cute, fun movie with lots of little surprises, and very heartwarming. But weird!

I spent the first 25 or 30 minutes of this movie in an advanced state of WTF. But it drew me in. Trying to work out what was happening and why and what might happen next was mezmerizing. Some scenes I still haven't figured out. But I loved it and ended the film with a big smile on my face.

I'd give it five stars for entertainment but I took one away for sheer oddity.

innocence, and ultimately liberation. The story starts in the present, and ultimately winds it's way back to the truth (and regret), which ultimately frees them, to have an adventure,
