Excellent film, Brilliant Animation, but advise for children over about 12 yrs
on 25 August 2017
Bought for my 14 year old niece who's fallen fast for Anime - who absolutely loves this film and a year later is still thanking me for it!. - If your child is new to Japanese film - this is a really lovely film - wouldn't buy it for anyone under 12yrs though because it can be a little scary in parts. All in all though beautiful animation and a lovely story of a little girl trying to save her family.
In this animated feature by noted Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki, 10-year-old Chihiro (Rumi Hiiragi) and her parents (Takashi Naitô, Yasuko Sawaguchi) stumble upon a seemingly abandoned amusement park. After her mother and father are turned into giant pigs, Chihiro meets the mysterious Haku (Miyu Irino), who explains that the park is a resort for supernatural beings who need a break from their time spent in the earthly realm, and that she must work there to free herself and her parents.
