| Nice, but lightweight
Mary and the Witch's Flower is a fun film that should delight the kiddies, but is not a perfect film.

The animation is excellent, not to mention the character and set design. Has a very unique old-timey fantasy feel to it. Mary is a strong likable character. The conclusion is both action and emotionally strong.

However, the first act lags. Running at a little over two hours, the film could have cut this down somewhat. The biggest flaw is that besides Mary, most of the film is very one-dimensional. They don't explain the world of magic and the magical university really well. (After the university is introduced, they never even bother showing the staff or students again except for three characters.) The world is more of a plot device than a truly living world.
