Rating: - BRILLIANT - BUT NOT IN ENGLISH
Since no one has reviewed the DVD yet, I'll chime in and say that this film has instantly become one of my favorite animated films of all time. Hayao Mayazaki is the real deal - everything about this film shows how bankrupt Disney and other animated films have become. And the real proof of it is in the Disney English version - everything is made crass and obvious (the voice talent is fine - it's the adaptation that's the problem), every sequence where Mayazaki has let silence be as beautiful as his animation has been rescored by Paul Chihara (who should know better), they've added an insipid pop song and they've made cuts in the film. All the scenes where they've Americanized the onscreen text look like like tenth generation dupes. Phil Hartman was a very funny man, but what they've done to the cat in the American version is reprehensible - it's just typical Disney and not anything to do with Mayazaki. So, the trick is, watch the film in Japanese with English subtitles - you will be moved to tears by the end of it, you will be enthralled with its subtleties and you will be in awe of its gorgeous imagery. Then watch the Disney version and you will know exactly what I'm talking about. Anyone who has only seen the American version, doesn't have a clue about the wonders of this simple, heartfelt and wonderful film. Buy it, watch it, but first in Japanese. Trust me on this.
Rating: - There isn't a word great enough to describe this movie.
This movie will make you drteam about it for years. Five stars isn't even close to what I'd give it. It just touches your heart and warms you up when you watch it. It truly is a magical movie that's IMPOSSIBLE to forget. I mean, words can't even describe the marvoulous sceneries and the cartooning is absolutely amazing. I could watch this movie 20 times and still be going strong. It completely enthralled me with it's fantasy world, and it makes you want to jump inside the movie and fly on a broomstick. The story is about a 13 year-old girl named Kiki who travels from her calm village to a beautiful port city by the ocean to train to become a witch. She arrives in the town flyng wildly on her broomstick with her talking black cat, Jiji.
A peaceful bakery shop owner named Osono takes Kiki in and gives her a room to stay in. Soon, she begins a delivery service for the bakery, flying on her broom to peoples houses.
While delivering, she meets a curious boy named Tombo about her age and it's questionable as to whether they like each other or not. She also meets a remote painter in the woods and become great friends. After some time living in this town, though, Kiki finds herself losing her ability to fly. In the end, Kiki has to muster up all of her strength and willpower to save Tombo's life. Find out what happens by watching it yourself!
Rating: - Kiki Delivers
Face it: any kids' video you buy will be watched over and over, mostly in your presence. You want to choose carefully, since you will be spending so much quality time with this video. Kiki's Delivery Service won't disappoint you. This sweet, gentle movie is a coming-of-age story about Kiki, a 13-year-old witch-in-training. As part of said training, she is required to spend a year away from home practicing her craft. Her subsequent adventures are the subject of this endearing film by Japanese anime director Hayao Miyazaki. The animation is splendid, the casting mostly inspired (Kirsten Dunst, Janeane Garofalo, Debbie Reynolds, and even the late Phil Hartman as the voice of Kiki's companion cat). Unlike the standard Disney fare, this movie has no violence, no sex, no profanity, and not even a dysfunctional family.
The themes of Kiki's Delivery Service are noble ones. There are far worse ways to spend a few hours (or a few dozen) than watching a young girl make friends and gain self-confidence, especially one as appealing as Kiki. Buy yourself an extra copy of this video. When you wear the first one out watching it by yourself, you'll need the spare to placate the kids.
