‘Spirited Away’ by Hayao Miyazaki

17 March 2006

I don’t often buy DVDs – there are very few films I would ever get around to watching more than once or twice – but I was seduced this week by a pile of discs on the counter at HMV where they were selling ‘Spirited Away’ for £4.99 – less than it cost me to see it at the cinema. ‘Spirited Away’, a Japanese animated film by Hayao Miyazaki, is one of my favourite films of recent years – visually beautiful, inventive and unpredictable, with a wonderful score – absolutely charming. (The DVD has the advantage that you can choose between the American voiced dubbed version and the original Japanese with English subtitles). If you haven’t seen it get yourself a copy now!
