A Letter to Momo (Momo E No Tegami)

de Hiroyuki Okiura

Trailer

Synopsis

Following her father’s death, Momo leaves the city to move with her mother to their old family house, located on a faraway island where time seems to have come to a halt decades ago. Surrounded by forests and grasslands, Momo can’t stop thinking about a letter her father left unfinished and that only contained the words “Dear Momo:”. An even greater mystery will be added to this one when the young girl finds an ancient book that triggers off a series of bizarre phenomena... Hiroyuki Okiura (Jin-Roh) needed seven years to complete this incredibly beautiful, handmade animated story, but I can assure you it was worth the wait.

Director

Hiroyuki Okiura

Katano, 1966. His innate talent for animation led him to begin his career without having received any academic training, working on classics like Akira (88) or Ghost in the Shell (95). In 1999 he made his directing debut with Jin-Roh, written by Mamoru Oshii. A Letter to Momo is his long-awaited second film.
