HOWL’S MOVING CASTLE (Theatrical Release USA 2004)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Howl’s Moving Castle
again demonstrates the ability of Hayao Miyazaki to cross universal cultural barriers and establish kindness within his highly creative movies. The movie is worth its watch for both children and adults and becomes a good candidate for addition to the family home video library as an international film worth a re-watch.
