    Acclaimed Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki adapts British writer Diana Wynne Jones's popular fantasy tale for this animated feature, adding his own unique and celebrated dreamlike spin. A young hat-maker named Sophie (voiced by Emily Mortimer) is turned into an old woman by the dreaded Witch of the Waste (Lauren Bacall) when she attracts the notice of Howl (Christian Bale), a young wizard whom the witch desires for herself. As the old woman, (voiced by Jean Simmons), Sophie finds refuge as a cleaning lady in Howl's magical castle, an impressively realized mishmash of anthropomorphic shafts and gears, where she meets, among other wonders, a cantankerous fire demon named Calcifer (Billy Crystal). Howl's courage inspires her to seek a cure for her curse, and vice versa, and the two work together to prevent a major war as the castle roams the countryside on its mechanical legs. There's lots of magic afoot as well, including travel through barriers of space and time, and shape-shifting, requiring full viewer attention to keep track of who, where, and when, but this how dreams really are and the film engages on that same subconscious level. As with Miyazaki's previous work (SPIRITED AWAY, KIKI'S DELIVERY SERVICE), the emphasis here is on creating a beautiful alternate reality, where anything can happen, and every frame is a breathtaking work of art. See it on the big screen if the chance presents itself; the elaborate intricacies and patiently realized alternate realities of Miyazaki's work makes him a true treasure.

    • I Am In Love With Heen
      Verified Purchase

      I love all of Miyazaki Hayao's films and out of all of them, "Howl's Moving Castle" is by far my favourite. Not to spoil anything but in this movie, there is love and a kiss (which is quite rare for a Miyazaki film). And all of the characters are likable! Especially Heen (he's Madame Sullivan's pet doggie!). I highly recommend this film to anyone and it's a wonderful introduction to all of Miyazaki's films!

    • Magical!!!
      Verified Purchase

      I own almost every Miyazaki animations available in US market. This latest animation of Miyazaki is one of his best. It is by far most romantic of all his works. The story and the drawings of this particular movie is just amazing. Miyazaki films don't use any CG(Believe it or not, it's all drawing!!) and the detail of the scenes are outstanding. Both my sons (6 and 13) love this movie and they also enjoy watching it in Japanese(even though they don't know a word of it!) Also, Overstock has the best value Miyazaki animations as far as I know. I haven't seen any price lower anywhere else. Anyone looking for long lasting romantic-advanturous-animation should go for this one.
