''It's all so familiar yet I know I've never been here before. I feel so at home.''

When an unconfident young woman is cursed with an old body by a spiteful witch, her only chance of breaking the spell lies with a self-indulgent yet insecure young wizard and his companions in his legged, walking home.

"What a dump. When I think of castles, it's not what I picture."

Hauru no ugoku shiro (a.k.a. Howl's Moving Castle) - the latest animated enchantment from esteemed Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki - is based on a novel by English writer Diana Wynne-Jones. This portion of anime is set in an indeterminate period (a cross between Harry Potter, Jules Verne and Alice in Wonderland) where... read more

This movie is a must-see. One of Miyazak

Hayao Miyazaki has done it again. This is another of his engaging works which is a brain trip on the high, fantastic road of the subconcious. But like all his other fantastic works, this one has a heart. You still know and feel that the experience is familiar, each character's dispositions only right, and the troubled circumstances the characters are plunged into, comic yet inevitable (in the film... read more

"The MC is turned from a young lady to a older woman and goes with the moving castle on a magical journey through a war. This setting is special like the most ghibli-movies and shows how brillant Hayao Miyazaki is. The animations in this movie where so damn good sometimes it feels like a reallife movie. "

"Miyazaki! Well of course! He has this kind of texture in his drawings and this kind of element in every story. All his work is just so special. This one is very interesting and nice. It has nice meanings and a deep story. The details are epic as expected from Miyazaki. I highly recommend it, I kind of like it more than spirited away."

" Notes: First of all, as usual with Hayao Miyazaki's work, the animation was nothing short of amazing. In my opinion, it is a real proof that hand-drawn animation can still produce some impressive work of Art and it definitely shouldn't be forgotten or let down. Furthermore, the story was quite really intriguing and entertained me throughout the whole thing and I especially enjoyed how all the characters who were very well defined and 3 dimensional. To be honest, by now, I have seen all the mov"
