Note: This review was written by me both on my blog and in an anime-related forum. So if you see this somewhere else, it's actually me trying to make this film more well-known.

This last weekend I had the opportunity to watch the tv movie Kawa no Hikari. In a nutshell, the story is about rats that live near a river and must find a new home cause the current one is threatened by a construction site....

...if ANYONE is still reading this after that synopsis and is able to deal with watching a show about talking animals in a serious mood, it's a WONDERFUL story. I read more

Recommendations

Both involve the trials and tribulations of a group of personified animals as their habitat is destroyed. Both take place in a realistic setting, with fantasy elements kept to a minimum. Kawa no Hikari has more of a light-hearted an whimsical feel, while Pom Poko is more dramatic.
