Kiki is a young witch in training and evidently the rite of passage is to journey to another town and become the town witch.

The word witch here doesn't carry the negative connotations of ugly old ladies with bent noses who only wish to consume the flesh of children in order to preserve their twisted sense of beauty. Oh no. Nothing of the sort. Witches aren't the most common thing i... read more

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

A Complete Review of Hayao Miyazaki's work (14 movies items)

" What was it about? A young witch, on her mandatory year of independent life, finds fitting into a new community difficult while she supports herself by running an air courier service. My two cents: Eventually, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this movie. Indeed, when I heard that it would be about a young witch called Kiki, I thought it would be really childish but I really enjoyed it, even if it was still too cute and gentle for my taste. First of all, as usual with this directo"

"A really sweet natured tale from Studio Ghibli. Kiki is a young witch who, when she reaches 13, has to head off into the world on her own for a year. Discovering a small, witchless town, she finds she can use her flying skills to deliver goods around the area, starting her own business. A magical tale that is simply lovely with a big, warm heart. Not brimming with creatures but a girl and her cat. Charming."

A good movie

“Since this movie was the last one directed by Hayao Miyazaki that I haven't seen so far, of course, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this movie. Indeed, when I heard that it would be about a young witch called Kiki, I thought it would be really childish but I really enjoyed it, even if it was still too cute and gentle for my taste. First of all, as usual with this director, the animation was just really impressive, especially since it has been made almost 30 years ago. Then, even though Miyazaki gave us another nice little girl as a protagonist, she turned out to be much more complex than his usual characters who can be slightly boring to be honest. Basically, she was a teenager going through puberty explaining why she was almost rude du” read more

"12.1 (uusintakatselu) Postilla taas vaihteeksi etenee tilausten toimittaminen hitaammin kuin etana ylämäessä, joten perjantai-illan suunnitelmat menivät tästä syystä kokonaan uusiksi. En keksinyt mitään sen kummempaa, niin oli pakko katsoa jotain uudestaan. Kikin lähettipalvelu on vanhemmiten vieläkin toimivampi Miyazaki, mitä joskus nuorempana. Lämminhenkinen aikuistumistarina, jota katsellessa meinaa itsellekin tulla haikea mieli. Totoron naiivius ja ällösöpöys on ehkä omaan"

Movie Reviews (701-750) (50 movies items)

" A wise-cracking cat steals every scene he's in as we follow a witch delivering goods with her broom. It is a harmless, cute hand-drawn animated movie but I recommended skipping the English version as Kirsten Dunst deliver to my ears a flat voice performance compared to the Japanese soundtrack. "
