Kiki's Delivery Service

Kiki's Delivery Service ★★★★

So this has been on my Netflix queue since a few months ago – the thing is Ghibli and I don’t get along that well. It is enjoyable to watch their animation and their whimsical stories; but I must confess that the years my mother said I was too old for cartoons have deprived me of that enjoyment.

Yet, this was such a great and beautiful take on witches. Our protagonist's gentleness and compassion immediately warm your heart and make you fall in love with her, which plays a big part of the movie's engagement. Witchcraft's application in the service of others was demonstrated in such a way that was just so captivating. Several minor details in the movie play a role in moving the story to interesting directions. The humor was spot on, as always, and I laughed throughout the film.

All in all, balancing the message with the emotional weights, this is another triumph of the Japanese studio, which has earned its rightful place as an underrated classic within the company.
