My 6-year old daughter's favourite Studio Ghibli film...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spirited Away [DVD] (DVD)
...and mine too. Having started, as you might expect, with Ponyo, this was the next Miyazaki on our list. Having not seen it myself and just going off the description, I was worried about it being too grown up or scary for her (she was 5 at the time) but my concerns were unfounded. Partly due to the fact the special screening we went to had the original Japanese print with subtitles! (my mistake - I didn't read the small print). Goodness knows what she thought was going on, although she sat through the whole thing without complaining, which I still find remarkable.
The next day I bought the DVD so she could make sense of it all and she wanted it to watch it again straight away after it had finished!
Having seen other, probably more age appropriate Studio Ghibli films since (My Neighbour Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, Arietty etc), Spirited Away remains her firm favourite.
