Academy Award winner (for Best Animated Feature Film of the Year) at the 75th annual Academy Awards. Four years since Princess Mononoke, Hayao Miyazaki has done it again. Each time his new film comes out, expectations are so high that many of us just wonder how can he possibly top his previous oeuvre. To our amazement, that's just what he accomplishes each time bringing added depth to his work. Winner of several international film awards (including the Golden Berlin Bear at Berlin International Film Festival, the Hong Kong Film Award for Best Asian Film, and the Japanese Academy Award for Best Picture), Spirited Away charms us by presenting the power of life through the adventures of its 10-year-old heroine, Chihiro who learns the "joy of giving" in spite of her predicament. Like some of the Meastro's other works, the film's world is inhabited by a throng of unique characters. Here, we have Haku (the mysterious boy who helps Chihiro), Yubaba (the witch who runs the public bath house), Kamajii (the boiler keeper), Kaonashi (the faceless spirit), Susuwatari (those creatures we had previously met in Totoro), and a host of others. Through its visual feast and wondrous tale sprung out of Miyazaki's unparalleled imagination, Spirited Away offers both a magical thrill-ride and a very satisfying spiritual journey for everyone who was once 10 years old, and those who will be.
Special Feature / Bonus Track: Storyboards (animated, 124 mins), 22 theatrical trailers (total runtime: 30 mins approx), introducing "Neko no Ongaeshi"

          Spirited away 5

          Lets start the anime reviews. Spirited away was one of the first anime movies I had seen. It inspired me so much. The story, animation and music all wonderful from start to finish. The story of a 10yo girl who learns a lot about life when she is thrown into a world strangely different. Strange creatures, surreal and dreamy imagery. Miyazaki makes the most incredible animated movies. Later I learned about his other movies and eagerly devoured them. Great movie for any age group I think. Worth the buy.

          Lovely movie! 5

          I bought this movie after seeing on cinemas! It is a must have! One of my favorite Miyazaki movies ever! It is a movie fit for anyone and you will not regret buying it.

          Another masterpiece from Ghibli 5

          Another ghibli story that teaches us to be strong even though everything is against us. Never give up and you may even fall in love XD.... I don't think I have to say something else except "watch this movie, you won't be dissapointed".

          Spirited Away 5

          Usually, I didn't watch the animation too much. But this animation is very good. The story is very funny and good. This movie is good for collection.
