Children Who Chase Lost Voices A.K.A. Journey to Agartha (2011)

A Japanese anime directed by Makoto Shinkai.
A teacher and his student travel to an underground fantasy world. The teacher seeks to resurrect his dead wife and the girl is chasing after a boy.
This was really good up to a certain point. The beginning started slow and built up to good adventures with wild monsters. The ending is where it fell apart. It was very inconclusive. What happens to the characters after the climax? Credits roll, that's what happens. I liked that they used various mythological words from around the world and tied things in with world history enough to make it believable. The guardian monsters were the best. Overall, great middle with no end. I rate this adequate.
