Almost all characters in NotGR are cats with human proportions for some reason. The story starts off on an Italian-esque countryside, on the day of the so called Centaurus Festival. When the night of the festival draws near, he is once again ostracized by the other kids - or should I say kittens? Suddenly, a flash of light appears and with it a magnificient train, which he boards together with his only friend Campanella, who was following him up the hill. Together they embark on a compelling journey as the train moves across the Milky Way.
The first thirty or so minutes of the movie are horribly slow, but after the characters have boarded the train, the pacing is screwed up a notch or two. Especially the characters look very simple, without much detail to them. On the other hand, the sceneries the two cats encounter during their journey are highly imaginitive; a walnut-littered excavation site of some kind of gigantic dinosaur skeleton; an immense field of corn with an unsuspended pendulum swinging in the blue sky above. And the like.
Night on the Galactic Railroad might not be as technically competent as contemporary Ghibli movies, but it certainly has got heart. Cats and even some humans board the train and disappear into thin air as suddenly as they came, lending the movie an even more mysterious atmosphere.
Night on the Galactic Railroad features mostly classical music. Putting that aside, the music fits the mood most of the time, but there are some creepy, more ambient tunes that seem sort of misplaced in their context. Which in a way only serves to make the atmosphere even more creepy. So, to summarize, this movie was quite a trip.

Аниме восхитительно и выше всяких похвал. У меня только две придирки. Эти кресты, эти молитвы, эти песни Смотрится как-то неуместно что-ли. Тогда уж намешать разных религий или обойтись вообще без них.
