Moving with her mother to the remote Japanese island of Shio\, Momo s oon discovers three yokai living in her attic\, a trio of mischievous spir it creatures that only she can see and who create mayhem in the tiny seasi de community as she tries desperately to keep them hidden. But these funny monsters have a serious side and may hold the key to helping Momo discove r what her father had been trying to tell her.\n\n<em>A Letter to Momo</em >&nbsp\;was seven years in the making\, and the handmade animation is supe rb\, from the painstakingly rendered serenity of the island&rsquo\;s Shint o shrines to the climactic finale &ndash\; a frantic chase featuring thous ands of squirming\, morphing ghosts and spirits that is the best cinematic flight of supernatural fancy in many years.
