“A triumphant film that, as expected, is as enthralling as it is occasionally confounding. I have seen The Boy and the Heron twice, yet I still cannot fully explain it to you.” – Odie Henderson, Boston Globe

“Filled with elegantly rendered imagery that few other animated features could approach, it’s another lovely, lively fable that weaves a magical spell and is filled with ache and layered meaning.” – Randy Myers, San Jose Mercury News
