Beautiful, dreamlike animation, a magical, enchanting story and strange, exciting characters captivated me throughout. Miyazaki's movies can be appreciated by kids and adults alike. If you've never seen any "anime" before this is a good place to start.

    Miyazaki tosses you lightly into a world of Japanese fairytale and myth. The story of a little girl moving to a new town, it goes from reality to unreality in dazzling swoops. The story might be a little frightening to a little kid, but it is enjoyable by both kids and adults. Visually spectacular, it is a movie that can be watched multiple times. Miyazaki's other movies are also very much worth watching.

    Excels well beyond its children's story premise.

    Description from amazon.com: From one of the most celebrated filmmakers in the history of animated cinema comes the most acclaimed film of 2002. Hayao Miyazaki's latest triumph, filled with astonishing animation and epic adventure, is a dazzling masterpiece for the ages. It's a "wonderfully welcoming work of art that's as funny and entertaining as it is brilliant, beautiful, and deep" (Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal). SPIRITED AWAY is a wondrous fantasy about a young girl, Chihiro, trapped in a strange new world of spirits. When her parents undergo a mysterious transformation, she must call upon the courage she never knew she had to free herself and return her family to the outside world. An unforgettable story brimming with creativity, SPIRITED AWAY will take you on a journey beyond your imagination. "To enter the world of Hayao Miyazaki is to experience a kind of lighthearted enchantment that is unique to the world of animation" (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times). It's a fantastic tale the whole family will want to experience over and over again. My review: This is a very beautiful film. As said in the above, Chihiro is stuck in a spirit world and runs into all sorts of situations while trying to find her way back to her parents. I've watched this movie more than 3 times and I still enjoy it. Warning: If you don't like subtitles, pass on this movie. And although this is animation, there might be some parts that would be scary to children.
