A breathtaking experience from beginning to end, this movie creates a bustling world that I could immersive myself in and crave more of it. Although the plot was fairly unclear to the point where I only truly understood what the story was behind Howl until the near end of the film, it felt rewarding to see how the plot would develop from its vague beginning.
I honestly had low expectations for this movie, even though I'd never watched any silent films. At first, I thought the tone of the movie couldn't be truly expressed through the actors' performances and the score. Yet, as I watched the film, the combination of Jean Dujardin's impressive performance and compelling music, I found myself thoroughly entertained by what may seem like a cliché plot.
