Suzume feels drawn by an invisible power and reaches out to the door - Soon, doors all over Japan start opening one after another. The doors that opened must be closed to shut out calamity that lies on the other side. -Stars, sunset, and the morning sky. The places she wanders into have a sky where all hours of the day seem to blend together- Beckoned by the mysterious doors, Suzume's "journey of closing doors" begins.

ENIGMATIC AND IMAGINATIVE JOURNEY
May 28, 2023
THE CREATORS OF THIS FILM DISPLAYED A LOT OF IMAGINATION WHEN THEY CAME UP WITH THE STORY LINE FOR THIS FILM, AND I WAS VERY HAPPY TO TAKE THAT JOURNEY WITH THEM. IT WAS LIKE WATCHING A SCI-FI VERSION OF "NANCY DREW." AND THE CHARACTER OF SUZUME TURNED OUT TO BE JUST AS GOOD A ROLE MODEL FOR YOUNG WOMEN AS NANCY. AND THE SCENE BETWEEN SUZUME AND HER YOUNGER SELF TOWARDS THE END WAS MORE TOUCHING THAN ANYTHING YOU WOULD FIND IN "NANCY DREW" (OR "THE HARDY BOYS").
