''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

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

My favourite Miyazaki!

“What an amazing achievement! This is by far the best example I have ever seen of animated characterization. The expressions and the nuances and the emotion captured in this film are truly breathtaking. I love all of Miyazaki's work, but in Howl's Moving Castle he has managed to take it to a level that to me sets the standard.

It has all of the classic stunning Miyazaki panoramas, rich settings, exciting and unusual machinery, and brilliantly conceived creatures that are often humorous and fanciful. The characters are all very expertly crafted and developed, but what really enchanted me were their expressions and the subtle but powerful ways that he chose to elaborate on their connections and emotions. It is very difficult to describe, but they come to life in such a powerful way ” read more

Obras que subiram no meu conceito (38 movies items)

"de 3/10 para 7/10(baita virada) Howls moving castle é uma animação que exala carisma, personalidade, engenho e trama! Sim, algo que eu notei no segundo rewatch, é uma obra que pode parecer confusa mas que segue uma lógica interna bem coerente e interessante desde um ponto de vista meta."

My Top 20 Anime Movies (20 movies items)

"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. "
