Master animation director Hayao Miyazaki follows up on his record-breaking 1997 opus Princess Mononoke with this surreal Alice in Wonderland-like tale about a lost little girl. The film opens with ten-year-old Chihiro riding along during a family outing as her father races through remote country roads. When they come upon a blocked tunnel, her parents decide to have a look around -- even though Chihiro finds the place very creepy. When they pass through the tunnel, they discover an abandoned amusement park. As Chihiro's bad vibes continue, her parents discover an empty eatery that smells of fresh food. After her mother and father help themselves to some tasty purloined morsels, they turn into giant pigs. Chihiro understandably freaks out and flees. She learns that this very weird place, where all sorts of bizarre gods and monsters reside, is a holiday resort for the supernatural after their exhausting tour of duty in the human world. Soon after befriending a boy named Haku, Chihiro learns the rules of the land: one, she must work , as laziness of any kind is not tolerated; and two, she must take on the new moniker of Sen. If she forgets her real name, Haku tells her, then she will never be permitted to leave.

Spirited Away 4.9 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 191 reviews.
lukesky_DC More than 1 year ago
I love this movie. In general I like animes. I think it wasn't really comfusing, but kind of weird. But for me I didn't really have too many questions at the end. If you read through most of the reviews you might have read one that gave it a 2 star rating and said it was long and confusing. Don't listen to them. It was a very wonderful movie and you won't regrett watching it!!!

Spirited Away is one of the best movies your whole family will ever watch together again and again. Little kids will enjoy the fantastical creatures, older kids will enjoy the whole movie and get good life lessons, and the adults will never have to worry about covering little eyes or ears--there's no reason to, and you'll be too busy having fun. This is a Disney release of a Studio Ghibli film by Hayao Miyazaki (buy everything he's ever made; you won't ever go wrong). It starts with a family (father, mother and 10-year-old daughter) moving to their new house. They go off the main road and get lost. (Guys never ask for directions.) Eventually they find what appears to be an abandoned theme park, and the three go exploring. (Dad's idea.) They find mounds and heaps of delicious food. The parents dig in and turn into (literal) pigs. The girl has to go to work to rescue them. She ends up working in a bathhouse for spirits and creatures. They're very fantastical but not scary. Sha makes friends with and helps many different spirits throughout the movie. Life lessons for kids of all ages here: She makes these friends by always being kind, courteous, respectful and nice to everyone, no matter how strange they look or act. One very beautiful scene is with an extremely dirty, smelly, sludgy being. She finds he's actually polluted and, with lost of help, pulls all the junk and trash out of him, transforming him into a river god. He's very happy and grateful. More life lessons: This works for real rivers too. (Miyazaki even says in one of the special features that this scene was inspired by his experience cleaning up an actual river.) This is one of the two best by Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli; the other is Kiki's Delivery Service. Buy this movie; let your kids watch it with their friends; watch it with them and talk about it. Have lots of fun.

There are not enough stars in the heavens to properly rate this movie. Spirited Away defines the concept of a magical adventure. It is sweeping, encompassing, charming and original; it is utterly transportive and enchanting. This is a film that should be in everyone's collection - it is a masterpiece. Even if you don't like anime, give this a try. It transcends what animation commonly is and reminds us what a truly classic film is all about.

SPIRITED AWAY is a movie you can watch again and again -- because it's art work is first-rate, the story is refreshingly original, and the characters are engaging. The story takes place in modern-day Japan, when a ten-year-old girl explores a strange place with her parents and finds herself ''spirited away''. The spirits in this story are an exotic mix of frogs, humanoids, and river spirits. When her parents are transformed into pigs, our young heroine must rely on inner strength, hard work, and newfound friends to make the best of a very challenging situation. Parents and children alike will be enchanted by this film -- it's awesome! ----------------------------------------------------- Cynthia Sue Larson, author of KAREN KIMBALL & The Dream Weaver's Web

I have always loved this movie since I first saw it. It is a bit depressing, or maybe nostalgic is a better word (I don't know why, it's just the atmosphere of it) but nonetheless I love it to death. I live in America in a small city so to come across DVDs like Spirited Away is a bit rare, so I took my first chance to buy it when I found it at Barnes and Noble. It will forever be one of my favorite movies.

I love this movie, it made up a part of my childhood. Though before when I was a child, I didn't understand a thing when I watch it.  Every time I watch it as an adult now gives me nostalgic feeling. The movie also gives me this dreamy feeling where it feels like I'm not in the real world anymore. It is absolutely amazing. Not really a fan of hard copies but willing to spend just for this one movie.

I love this movie and I wish I could own it as  Nook Video, along with all the other amazing Studio Ghibili films.

Spoiler Alert! Compared to some of the other movies by Miyazaki I have to admit that this one is a little more scary in some aspects. Having said that I by no means dislike the movie. It does tend to be a little confusion at times and I agree that it got a little weird but you still get a happy ending. Since this is a review i will say what it was that made me take a step back at first. During the movie a demon named No Face enters the bathhouse and tries to make friends with the human girl there by giving her gifts. She refuses them while other employees in the bathhouse take them out of greed. Then, because I believe No Face is unable to speak, No Face tricks a worker into approaching him and then he eats the worker. After that he is able to speak to the others but then he begins to lose his mind. I also was slightly turned off when No Face is chasing the girl out of the bathhouse and due to some medacine she gave him to help him get his mind back he begin to throw up and there was a lot of images of that. All together I still would call this a good movie but I would not show it to children under a certian age myself. I will leave that up to the parents though to decide.

“Spirited Away” involves the journey that a young girl named Chihiro embarks on after finding her parents transformed into pigs. She also travels through an even more unusual spirit world and dealing with the witch who was responsible for what happened to her parents. “Spirited Away” reminds me of “Howl’s Moving Castle” (which is also a good film).“Spirited Away” is a great anime movie with supernatural/spiritual themes.

This is the best Anime and Animation movie/TV show i have EVER seen and i am probably THE most anime freak in the world. But this one stands out. I mean the animation, acting, effects, set, story line, everything about this movie is AMAZING. you don't have to like anime just have to like action, adventure, fantasy and everything in-between! If you say you didn't even like it... there's something maturely wrong with you!!!
