Has anyone seen Night on the Galactic Railroad?

I stumbled upon this movie by accident and was wondering if it was any good, though quality is arguably subjective.

No, I haven't seen it.

But it's a sort of obscure classic film based on a not-at-all obscure classic children's novel by Keiji Miyazawa, and I have only ever heard good things about both of them (despite the simplicity of being a story for children, they offer some thoughtful reflections on life in a way similar to The Little Prince, is what I've heard), so I think if you're interested in watching it you should go for it.

It's one of the best anime movies I've seen.
The quality is a product of its age, and some people have serious problems with the apparent theology, but it's definitely worth a look, even if you have to take it with a few grains of salt.
