This is a sweet natured animated film. It generates a warming sensation through the characters and visuals. It's a breezy watch that's easy to get swept up in.

Hands-down my favorite Miyazaki movie. I was maybe 5 when I first saw it, and now, 14 years later, I still love it.

There's a certain charm about Studio Gibli films, as they tell stories with redemptive messages and put equal emphasis on story as on spellbinding visuals. This film isn't as instructive or magical as other films in the canon of Gibli films, but it is often funny and moving. I loved the cat.

Another great Studio Ghibli release - perfect family entertainment with a great message and memorable characters. While not as polished as later releases, you can tell a lot of heart went into the project,

With a shaky command of her broom, she ends up in a charming little coastal town that looks like a cross between the French provincial and San Francisco. Unfortunately, the local hotels have a strict "no witches" policy and the police have taken a dim view of her recent aerial mischief-making. She's saved from the street by a kindly baker's wife, who offers her room and board in exchange for her delivering by broom the baker's wares.

While I still haven't seen Hayao Miyazaki other films yet as I'm slowly checking one o...

Bewitching and charming

Miyazaki scored his first major box office hit for Studio Ghibli with this utterly charming story of a young witch-wannabe aspiring to find her place in a far-off town. What's particularly amazing about this movie isn't just the flight sequences, which sparkle with imagination and wonder, but how we grow attached to the characters and find ourselves cheering them on. Not just another syrupy kids' movie, KIKI'S DELIVERY SERVICE is also the sort of movie that even grown-ups will find themselves captivated by. This was the first movie to be released under the Disney-Ghibli deal, with an excellent cast of voice actors which include Kirsten Dunst, who provides liveliness and believability as Kiki, Matthew Lawrence as the geeky Tombo, Debbie Reynolds as elderly Madame, and Janeane Garofolo as t...
