5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing., 30 Mar. 2008
This review is from: Spirited Away [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
One of the finest animated movies ever made, Miyazaki's 'Spirited Away' is a true one of a kind. A little girl 'Chihiro' strays into an Alice in Wonderland like ghost town, and must become part of this strange community if she is to save her parents. As she slowly changes from moaning brat to head-strong young lady, we watch completely enraptured.

But Spirited Away's true genius lies in the side characters, so brilliant they deserve their own movies. Were talking a huge baby with temper issues, a frog in a kimono, and my favourite, three bodyless heads that roll aroung the floor grunting to themselves. Priceless.

Hayao Miyazaki is often referred to as the 'Japanese Walt Disney'. Well my opinion is that this equals anything Disney ever came up with, if not bettering it. With simply beautiful music, wonderful animation and a tear jerkingly triumphant climax, most other animated movies of the past few years seem saggy and pretentious compared to this.

As all the preceding reviews will tell you, I can't imagine how anyone could dislike this film. In my opinion 'Spirited Away' is good for the soul, the highest recommendation I can give.

Take the hint and buy this film today.
