This film is the prequel to the film The Cat Returns. Even though The Cat Returns was a fantasy film and this was more of a drama the two are directly related. The Cat Returns is the screenplay that could have been written from the polished version of the story “Whisper of the Heart” that Shizuku Tsukishima writes in this film. This film is also an adaptation of the manga of the same name in English or in in Japan as Mimi o Sumaseba, “If You Listen Closely”. Any person that has seen either film should see both of them as you can see where the inspiration and the feeling came from.
