Product Description

Amazon.ca

The highest grossing film in Japanese box-office history (more than $234 million), Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away (Sen To Chihiro Kamikakushi) is a dazzling film that reasserts the power of drawn animation to create fantasy worlds. Like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz and Lewis Carroll's Alice, Chihiro (voice by Daveigh Chase--Lilo in Disney's Lilo & Stitch) plunges into an alternate reality. On the way to their new home, the petulant adolescent and her parents find what they think is a deserted amusement park. Her parents stuff themselves until they turn into pigs, and Chihiro discovers they're trapped in a resort for traditional Japanese gods and spirits. An oddly familiar boy named Haku (Jason Marsden) instructs Chihiro to request a job from Yubaba (Suzanne Pleshette), the greedy witch who rules the spa. As she works, Chihiro's untapped qualities keep her from being corrupted by the greed that pervades Yubaba's mini-empire. In a series of fantastic adventures, she purges a river god suffering from human pollution, rescues the mysterious No-Face, and befriends Yubaba's kindly twin, Zeniba (Pleshette again). The resolve, bravery, and love Chihiro discovers within herself enable her to aid Haku and save her parents. The result is a moving and magical journey, told with consummate skill by one of the masters of contemporary animation. MPAA Rated: PG ("Some scary moments") --Charles Solomon

5.0 out of 5 stars Movie for all ages! April 7 2003
Format:DVD
I don't quite understand or agree a few user's reviews of this movie. I saw it with my 6 year old daughter, who I never take to anything rated stronger than PG. I think this movie teaches kids such wonderful lessons in humanity, and you need to understand the meaning behind the movie yourself before you can judge it. It might be a little confusing to the lesser educated? My daughter loved it, and we used it as an important lesson about morals. You will never see her eat food left sitting on a counter!! My husband and I also loved the movie. Don't be afraid to let your kids see this movie, it's certainly better than the .... afternoon cartoons they watch on t.v. Although I don't care for anime, this was a REALLY good movie, we have already pre-ordered it for dvd. Put the popcorn in the microwave sit down with the family and enjoy! If they have any nightmares you can blame me, but frankly my daughter has more nightmares after watching teletubbies! So do I!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Miyazaki's Waking Dream April 23 2003
Format:DVD
After grossing more than $250 million in its native Japan and enthralling the anime fan community in the United States, "Spirited Away" has been released both theatrically and in a well-assembled English/Japanese hybrid DVD to great critical and popular acclaim. Winning the 2002 Academy Award for Best Animated Feature didn't hurt, either, and now people are finally beginning to discover what makes Hayao Miyazaki one of the most widely-celebrated directors in the world. Even if he's never made a film with a single living actor on screen.
What makes the movie so special is not just the beauty and gidy strangeness of the images, but because it is at core a grand and well-told story. People who hate animation find themselves captivated after only a few minutes, probably because the story starts on such specific, realistic terms and only gradually branches into fantasy. By the time we're neck-deep in it, so to speak, there's no turning back.
"Spirited Away" gives us Chihiro (Rumi Hiiragi in Japanese, and an excellent Daveigh Chase in English), a sullen and dispirited ten-year-old traveling with her parents to their new home in the suburbs. Chihiro has not wanted to move, and resents her mother and father for being forced to leave her old life behind -- much as any ten-year-old would -- and her parents are blithely indifferent to her annoyance. She'll get over it, they seem to be thinking.
Their car takes a wrong turn and winds up being stopped near what looks like a theme park. "They built a lot of these in the Nineties, before the economy went bad," her father says, "so you tend to find them just sort of standing around, falling apart.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant March 29 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
the transition between the two worlds is such a wonderful idea to contemplate. there's a dreamlike quality to the way the creatures are sometimes visible, sometimes oddly transparent. our 4 year old loves this movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad disc.
Daughter very excited to receive this Christmas morning. By afternoon, cursing a disc that skips, stalls and plays without sound. Second half of movie unwatchable.
