Momo e no Tegami

Summary

After the loss of her father, young Momo moves to the old family house on a remote island: wooden buildings, terraced fields… and no shopping mall. Not too fond of the new environment, Momo is also feeling uneasy about an unfinished letter her father left behind with only two words: “Dear Momo.” Then, exploring the attic of her new house, she finds an antique book – and from that moment, strange happenings occur all around her.

Note: Jin-Roh director Okiura Hiroyuki spent seven years planning, writing, storyboarding, and directing the film; it is his first return to the proverbial director’s chair since Jin-Roh in 2000.

The Toronto International Film Festival hosted the world premiere of A Letter to Momo (Momo e no Tegami) anime film as part of the September 8-18, 2011 event’s TIFF Kids program.
