ITEM#: 2683478Directed by animation legend Hayao Miyazaki, SPIRITED AWAY is the tale of Chihiro (voiced by Daveigh Chase), a young girl who is taken down an unusual road by her parents while moving to a new home in an unfamiliar town. The curiosity of Chihiro's mother (Lauren Holly) and father (Michael Chiklis) leads the reluctant child into what appears to be an abandoned amusement park. Soon her parents are greedily feasting on various delights from an enticing food stand and are literally turned into pigs. The frightened and bewildered girl then encounters a young man named Haku (Jason Marsden), who explains what she must do to navigate this strange and magical realm. Finding employment in a bathhouse for spirits and other odd characters--including kimono-wearing frogs, lumbering tentacled monsters, and a mysterious apparition named No Face--Chihiro attempts to figure out how she can free her parents from the clutches of the resort's owner, a powerful witch named Yubaba (Suzanne Pleshette). In the process, she makes some very eccentric friends--and has to deal with some notoriously stinky customers. A surreal adventure reminiscent of Lewis Carroll's ALICE IN WONDERLAND, SPIRITED AWAY continues Miyazaki's streak of groundbreaking animated films that also includes PRINCESS MONONOKE and MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO. Succeeding MONONOKE as the most successful film in Japanese cinema history, this charming movie follows its own bizarre yet engaging logic as it reveals a cast of fascinating characters and jaw-dropping settings through stunningly beautiful hand-crafted animation. A movie experience like no other, SPIRITED AWAY is sure to enchant audiences of all ages, leaving viewers grinning with a giddy sense of wonderment.

This is a great movie for those who like anime or who have an open mind about Japanese culture and philosophy.Read More
I have loved this movie since the first time I saw it in the theater (in Japanese with subtitles no less)! I made sure my kids saw it and would recommend it for everyone of any age. It is now in English of course, although you can run it with subtitles. I find seeing it with subtitles gives a better grasp of names and the like. The English translation and voices are as excellent as the story and animation!Read More

I will not bother to summarize the storyline, because it has been done many times before and is probably known to you already if you are looking at this product. Anyway, this movie is fantastic. The animation is fluid and the actual drawings themselves are very detailed and beautiful. The soundtrack always matches the situation perfectly, making for an exciting and sometimes emotional viewing experience. Probably the best thing about this movie, however, is that it can truly be enjoyed by anyone, no matter what age group. The visuals and the soundtrack can be appealing to any age group because of how well they are done. Miyazaki does an excellent job telling a story in an intelligent way that is simple enough for children to understand, but is filled with hidden meanings and small bits of philosophy that a more mature audience can try to find and analyze. The whole movie is a work of art, plain and simple. This movie is a must-see for just about anyone, whether he is a fan of anime or not. This is one of the very few movies I have ever seen where I felt like I needed to purchase it right away after I had viewed it the first time. Believe the hype that this movie generates in all of the reviews, because it really does live up to it.Read More
