Monmon is one of six anime films shown only in the Ghibli Museum's Saturn Theatre. It's just a short film animated by Studio Ghibli. I'm probably one the few people on MAL who's seen this. According to wikipedia each month the museum will show a different one of these six films. So to see them all you'd have to be in Japan for six months and go to the museum once a month. The only other other option is to watch a crappy recording from inside the theatre. There are some on youtube, but I don't know if they show the entire animation.

As I said ...

I saw this several years ago when I visited the Ghibli Museum and, as another reviewer said, it really is a shame that it isn't available to more people because it's so beautiful. The music was lovely and, since it's Ghibli, the animation was gorgeous as well. Such a sweet story but also bittersweet. I would go back to the museum solely for the purpose of seeing this again (I loved it so much)! If you're lucky enough to have the opportunity to visit the museum I hope you're able to see it.

I really enjoyed this short film and it's such a pity that not a lot of people are able to see it. The music was amazing and as always even though the storyline was not sad, my eyes teared up. Highly recommend to watch this one while in Japan :)
