SPIRITED AWAY
SEN TO CHIHIRO NO KAMIKAKUSHI
2001, Studio Ghibli, 125 min, Japan, Dir: Hayao Miyazaki
Hayao Miyazaki’s Academy Award-winning masterpiece was the biggest box office hit of all time in Japan and helped redefine the possibilities of animation for American audiences and a generation of new filmmakers. Wandering through an abandoned carnival site, 10-year-old Chichiro is separated from her parents and stumbles into a dreamlike spirit world, where she is put to work in a bathhouse for the gods, a place where all kinds of nonhuman beings come to refresh, relax and recharge. Here she encounters a vast menagerie of impossibly inventive characters – shape-shifting phantoms and spirits, some friendly, some less so – and must find the inner strength to outsmart her captors and return to her family. Combining Japanese mythology with Through the Looking Glass-type whimsy, SPIRITED AWAY cemented Miyazaki’s reputation as an icon of inspired animation and wondrous, lyrical storytelling. “Prepare to be astonished.” – Los Angeles Times “Epic and marvelous! Phantasmagoric!” – New York Times “One of the year’s best films!” – Roger Ebert.
