Moving, Brilliant, Beautiful, Magical etc., 28 Aug. 2007
Having already owned 'Spirited Away' and 'Howls Moving Castle' on DVD, I searched for another epic; and found it. This film, as all other Miyazaki productions do, takes you on a wonderfully moving journey. The imagination and deepness to the story is beautiful, the characters are brilliantly developed and the quality of the animation (now 10 years old) is awe inspiring. I would struggle to believe that anyone could actually not like this film, because it should appeal to all audiences. Yes, it contains serious themes and some violence, but it is still very much a family film for everyone to enjoy.
