About A Letter to Momo
A Letter to Momo follows the adventures of Momo, an 11 year old girl whose entire world has been rocked by the untimely death of her father. Forced to leave her life in Tokyo and move to the small island where her mother grew up, Momo is tormented by a letter her father wrote to her – a letter containing only two words: Dear Momo. Soon after her arrival on the island, mysterious goings-on begin to torment the residents and Momo decides to uncover the truth behind them once and for all.
A beautiful animated feature film directed by Hiroyuki Okiura (of Jin-Roh: Wolf Brigade fame), A Letter to Momo is a magical, emotional and wonderful story. Anime Limited is very excited to be able to bring A Letter to Momo to theatres around the UK.
