Children’s movies almost always have this way of getting into someone’s heart, especially when the main theme is serious from the start and this particular one did not fall short to the expectations. It is a simple slice-of-life story with no real plot other than their everyday life, but so motivating at the same time.

The concept itself is quite dramatic; twins that were born early resulting in one of them getting the short end of the stick. The story is character-centered, revolving around what is important in life and how they react to differences. From little walks to the park to hospital visits to talking read more

So yeah, after finding about this anime movie's existence a few months ago, along with Happy Birthday: Inochi Kagayaku Toki, I decided to set out and find them! The first movie I managed to find without much problems, even though the footage had Russian subs and REALLY BAD sound quality, but it was better than nothing! Not by a long shot! But Momoko? That was MUCH harder to find, even though it was made in...what? 2003? I swear, these movies are more underrated than Dog of Flanders: My Patrasche! Well, after lots of hard searching, I finally found a RAW video of the movie My read more

“I also cry a lot at school. But Ms. Ushizawa says that crying and laughing a lot shows that we're alive.”

When I was a child, there was a young man in my primary class at church who had cerebral palsy. I never sat next to him, I never talked to him or his family, but he was always there at the end of the front row in his wheelchair, smiling and attempting to sing along. I remember the day the teachers announced proudly he had gone on his first date (as he was sixteen at the time), and he tried to tell us through his read more

Youth, simultaneously innocent and cruel, but endlessly perseverent. This is the story of twins, born two months prematurely: Riki and Momoko, both named for the blossoming plum tree's perseverence in winter by their father, who wa inspired by the sight of it in bloom.

Despite a slow frame-rate and some sub-standard voice acting, this is a movie will surely move those who have suffered for being different, felt embarrassed (and later regretted feeling that way) by a relative who is not what society considers "normal," and for those who remember how difficult childhood can often be. The children are nine, they're still easily influenced, as shown read more

My Sister Momoko is a movie that's worth your time. It's a movie that has lessons to teach and a story to tell, and it achieves this very well with what it has. A good watch for all ages, it may help change the way that we treat people who are different from us.
While the art is mediocre, the characters and heart that this movie has will distract you from that soon. It really gives you insight into the difficulties the characters face surrounding Momoko's disability, including her parents, brother, classmates, and most importantly, Momoko herself. I enjoyed the focus on the disabled characters, read more
