It's a great little film with an original story which appeals across a very broad spectrum (a proper family film). The animation is superb. And unusually for an American film it manages to tug at the heartstrings a bit without being saccharine, schmaltzy or sentimental.

And it's a great visual metaphor for having to let go. The old guy is literally tied to his old house (and his past).
