Spir­ited Away

TV & Satellite Week - - Films -

The win­ner of 2003’s Os­car for Best An­i­mated Film can quite jus­ti­fi­ably take its place among cin­ema’s great­est ever flights of fan­tasy. Di­rected by the Ja­panese artist Hayao Miyazaki, the film charts the sur­real ad­ven­tures of a bel­liger­ent lit­tle girl who gets lost in a mag­i­cal spa for the gods of old Ja­pan af­ter her par­ents are trans­formed into pigs. Funny, scary, thrilling and breath­tak­ingly beau­ti­ful, this work of as­ton­ish­ing imag­i­na­tion presents a unique world that is quite un­like any­thing you may have seen be­fore. 2001, PG,125MIN
