Miyazaki continues to surprise with this coming-of-age tale of a young witch who leaves her home for her training according to the tradition and after taking refuge in a beautiful city she starts her own delivery service. As is with other Miyazaki films, this anime too isn't artificial in its emotions even when Kiki is equipped with the same old movie clichés. Kiki is an interesting character: sh... read more

"Rating: G Run Time: A little over an hour and a half Genres: Fantasy Summary: 13 year old Kiki leaves her family to begin training as a witch in a new town, where she starts helping out at a bakery by delivering food on her broom. Throughout the year, Kiki befriends a lot of people in town, including a nerdy boy obsessed with aeronautics. My opinion: Great movie with a deep story and characters you can relate to. Rank: Gold"

“Miyazaki continues to surprise with this coming-of-age tale of a young witch who leaves her home for her training according to the tradition and after taking refuge in a beautiful city she starts her own delivery service. As is with other Miyazaki films, this anime too isn't artificial in its emotions even when Kiki is equipped with the same old movie clichés. Kiki is an interesting character: she is optimistic, energetic and smart but at the same time she covets, she is proud making her sound a little foolish at times. Miyazaki's portrayal of young girls has always been perfect in every sense (e.g. his other films like Totoro, Spirited Away). Thus our Kiki is the hero and the villain both at the same time. She is that kind of person whose true goal is not to face life but is to face hers” read more

"12.05. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Hayao Miyazaki A pleasant, pretty little fairy-tale. Beautiful but nothing too spectacular. "Just another Miyazaki film" really. Props for the fantastically conceived city landscapes. "
