Project-blu writes: Yoshifumi Kondo left the movie industry and world too soon. His one and only Studio Ghibli film is such a great picture it’s disappointing we will never seen another film by him. Whisper of the Heart is a beautiful story that slowly puts itself together for people of all ages. Children and adults can enjoy this beautiful love story together. The upgrade on Blu-ray is worth the hefty price tag as blind buyers won’t be disappointed. Hang in there during the slow start of the movie; it’s worth allowing it to develop.
