SPIRITED AWAY (Theatrical Release Japan 2001)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Spirited Away
—good concept—plays itself into a good, worth watching child/adult share movie. Director Hayao Miyizaki has always been able to cross the international borders between Japan and United States entertainment easily through his animated works. He does it again with this film, brings Japanese folklore and imagination to an audience in such a way that is easy to absorb and appreciate. Great work for Director Hayao Miyizaki.
