Storyline: Chihiro and her parents are moving to a small Japanese town in the countryside, much to Chihiro's dismay. On the way to their new home, Chihiro's father makes a wrong turn and drives down a lonely one-lane road which dead-ends in front of a tunnel. Her parents decide to stop the car and explore the area. They go through the tunnel and find an abandoned amusement park on the other side, with its own little town. When her parents see a restaurant with great-smelling food but no staff, they decide to eat and pay later. However, Chihiro refuses to eat and decides to explore the theme park a bit more. She meets a boy named Haku who tells her that Chihiro and her parents are in danger, and they must leave immediately She runs to the restaurant and finds that her parents have turned into pigs. In addition, the theme park turns out to be a town inhabited by demons, spirits, and evil gods. At the center of the town is a bathhouse where these creatures go to relax. The owner of the bathhouse is...

Beautiful and full of story
It takes some movies a lot of time to build story, to change it and adapt it. Some films don't even succeed in developing any kind of depth of character.

Spirited Away surpasses all expectations. The story twists and turns, never once losing viewers yet still seems to make the fantastical happen. The characters are well thought out and all lend to the amazing plot. There are not a lot of films out there that can pack so much in in such a short time, however Studio Ghibli manage it nonetheless. One of my favourite titles out there.
This movie is a masterpiece. It is perfected into the smallest detail. This is definitely the best animated movie I have ever seen.

When I looked at the cover of this movie I thought it looked kinda boring. But that was exactly the opposite of what it was. It is full of creatures you've never heard of, and even though it's not said it is a comedy, it is completely full-stuffed of totally hilarious moments.

To name some of the great stuff in this movie: The characters are very worked-through and totally original, I have never seen such an example of imagination. There is no flat characters either, that means there are no such boring things as an all-the-way-through evil or good character.

The story is also very original. If you just read the story here on IMDb it might not seem very special or interesting (I didn't have very high expectations on the movie after reading the backside of the DVD), but trust me, when things start happening, you'll find yourself completely stuck.

This movie is a great example (and proof) that you don't need 3d or cool explosion effects to make a really great movie! If you haven't seen it, do it! NOW!
Brilliant beyond expectations of glory

Miyazaki is a genius and a true creator of Masterworks. "Sen and Chihiro's Spiriting Away" is a perfect example of that genius, subtle and very powerful messages couched in enjoyable and visually beautiful form. One thing: Please don't use the incorrect Americanized title.. it removes a key issue from the movie, that of Duality, and Miyazaki wanted it there, or he WOULDN'T have titled it that way in the first place. One more thing: Watching the dub ruins the movie. If you want Disneyesque storytelling without content, watch the dub. If you want Miyazaki's movie, watch it in the original with subtitles, please..

Miyazaki holds the same views in all of his work.. ecology is always at the forefront.. as it was in "Sen and Chihiro's Spiriting Away".

Spirited Away (for short) is important because it is the DUALITY that is at the core of the movie.. Duality.. Sameness.. what it is to be empty and how the hunger of emptiness can come to become an all encompassing NEED to "swallow" all that is around one.. That is saying something very significant about us. Miyazaki said that there "is a little of No-Face in us all" -- and that aspect of us, that "No-Face" with its hunger and need.. must find resolution. In Spirited Away, it was found through Zenobia, Yubaba's twin sister.. who gave No-Face the "place" he needed.. who gave that need and hunger that IS no-face, surcease, peace, finally.

Greed is obvious, human greed, in simple aspects of the movie.. Chihiro's parents acting like "pigs" and in so, BECOMING pigs themselves. That's not overly subtle (although many miss it and thing it just a bit of humor), but it is powerful... "be so, and you will become so". Take what is not yours to take, and your punishment will be swift and unyielding.

This carries over the environment as well.. and ties in nicely with two other factors.. the "stink spirit" which was NO STINK SPIRIT AT ALL.. but a powerful RIVER GOD.. who was so full of POLLUTION that he'd turned from something powerful and beautiful to a lumbering, stinking, barely able to move, thing of filth. That's a powerful image.

When he is "cleansed" (by the small and innocent Chihiro who has done nothing wrong -- she is the innocent (yes, she's spoiled and a bit surly at the start, but she grows quickly. Painfully at times, but quickly.. almost losing her identity (again the duality theme.. She is both Sen AND she is Chihiro.. that's why the Japanese title referred to them BOTH as being "Spirited Away".

When the River God is cleansed, you see what he REALLY is.. and he flies away, leaving Sen (for she is Sen at that time) a gift... a rare and powerful gift.

Then we look at Haku.. Who, in the scheme of duality has LOST his other side, his true and other self.. you may recall that he was described as having changed and since he become Yubaba's apprentice, he has become "more and more pale and steely-faced" -- in other words, losing more and more of "himself" -- and yet, Yubaba is willing to simply discard him once he is bleeding and dying and "of no further use to her"... but Sen/Chihiro WON'T let him die.

Through the power of love, she brings him back -- only a love so strong could have saved him from the poisonous spell that was on the seal he stole from Yubaba's twin sister, Zenobia. But she over-rules that spell with her love, determination, and with the medicine, half of which she gave to No-Face to save HIM, and the other half of which she forces into Haku, to save HIM.. leaving her nothing to save her parents, but in the balance of "whose need is greatest right NOW" she acts correctly.

Saving Haku.. and then helping him recover his name (and saving him in a more profound way by FREEING him.. as he freed her by giving her back her clothes and her card with her name on it.. she had almost lost herself at that point.. she'd forgotten her name.. results in him saving her as well.. They save each other.

But WHY does Haku need saving? Because his river WAS FILLED IN. More Ecology.. we destroy, we pollute, we are GREEDY.. and the consequences are dire. Haku no longer has his river... the River God no longer can be clean due to our pollution.. and our greed turns Chihiro's parents into, LITERALLY, pigs..

We *are* the pigs. We are greedy, we destroy, we pollute, we even "stink" (remember the references to Sen as "smelling" bad and no one willing to work with her because of her human "stink"? That's very much to the point.. we stink because the things we do literally STINK.. we turn to black everything we touch.

Miyazaki's message of duality, and ecology and salvation is very potent in Spirited Away... it's a very serious movie cloaked in the beautiful anime that makes watching it a pleasurable experience.. but if we just skim the surface and don't think about what is being said, we are as clueless and stupid as the parents who turn *themselves* into pigs.

That too is a subtle message.. "miss the point, and you're doomed to repeat it". And turn yourselves into pigs.. or worse yet, remain as pigs.
Wonderful coming-of-age story, beautifully pictured
Seldom have I seen a movie full of such boundless fantasy, incredible beauty and opulent pictures. Miyazaki presents the story of Chihiro who has to rescue her parents from the spell of a witch in fantasy world with such extravagant richness that stuns the spectator.

Granted the story about this fantasy world with all kinds of exceptionally weird creatures and situations takes needs getting used to at first. But very soon the spectator is totally engrossed by the magical story and overwhelming pictures.

In view of the diversity of bizarre creatures, the filmmaker's creativity seems almost unlimited. The beautiful pictures have a very soothing and at the same time enthusiastic effect onto the spectator.

But the brilliance of the movie doesn't only result from the beauty of the pictures, the story itself is very subtle and profound. In short, it is a story about growing-up. Chihiro and her parents are on their way to their new home in the suburbs when they accidentally step into a magical world, where Chihiro's parents are transformed into pigs. From now on, Chihiro has to manage everything by herself. She has to attempt to turn her parents back into humans and is confronted with situations and characters that don't coincidentally seem like metaphors of our world. Now, Chihiro learns how to solve problems herself and how to deal with the characters of the people she meets. At the end, Chihiro has turned into a almost mature person.

Although occidental spectator won't be able to understand all symbolisms that are conveyed by the characters, but there's is actually no need of it. The fantastic world and its creatures perfectly work as a scenery for a wonderful coming-of-age story.

The wonderful, as customary for composer Joe Hisaishi, music adds even more magical beauty to the scenery.
Dorothy , Pinocchio, Alice and finally... Chihiro!
"Spirited Away" ventures in the realm of poetic fantasy through the life-changing journey of Chihiro, a ten-year old girl imprisoned in a world of spirits after her parents have been turned into pigs.

This premise suggests a mixture of two universal stories immortalized (but not created) by Disney: "Pinocchio" and "Alice in Wonderland". The parents become pigs after they surrendered to gluttony in an unattended restaurant full of appetizing meals; the father mentions his credit card before swallowing a large spoonful of noodles… like a pig, literally. Both adults are punished like the kids in Dream Island who made jackasses of themselves. Chihiro was spared because she felt something was wrong and only wanted (a bit cowardly) to get back to the car.

There's a sort of 'immanent justice' governing this seemingly hostile universe, any action has either a cost or a reward, established by the wizard-like imagination of Hayao Miyazaki. Take the villainous Yubaba, a big-headed 'witch' who's also the tenant of a traditional bathhouse and the one who cursed Chihiro's parents, despite her evil ordeals, she's not as one-dimensional as the Coachman, she's a manager who believes in good work and good manners. She's as capable as complimenting and rewarding as she is in the 'punishing' department. It all comes to a moment halfway through the film, when you see the parent's punishment as a severe yet understandable answer to their lack of humility.

But just because Chihiro didn't yield the temptation doesn't make her immune to the wrath of Yubaba. Chihiro wasn't too enthusiastic about the family moving to another town, she missed her friends and school, she's literally turned to the past, like an overprotected only child who can't get off her zone of comfort. After "Pinocchio", she's also a little Alice who doesn't dream about escapism but quite the opposite, and although she doesn't become a pig, her presence in that world has a reason, Chihiro is a girl who embraces the present and only wishes to have her parents back, but she has a few lessons to learn, not to redeem her parent's fault but to overcome her status-quo complex and the things she take for granted.

Chihiro works as a slave for Yubaba, giving her name in exchange of safety. It's not exactly the name, but from what I gathered, a 'kenji', a sort of syllabus that changes her identity to Sen. Actually, the literal meaning of the Japanese title is the "Disappearance of Sen and Chihiro" as if Chihiro was incarnating the loss of Japanese memory, like her parents did when they forgot about basic courtesy in the name of money… or like these human ghosts in that masterful train sequence, probable metaphors of Japanese people alienated by the modern world. By becoming two persons at once, Chihiro embarks on a transitional state, in a quest she knows nothing about, and neither do we, until the end, when the film unveils the message, like "The Wizard of Oz" did with the unforgettable 'there's no place like home'.

Now, at that point of the review, I'll keep this simple and say that "Spirited Away" is also a visually rich experience full of Carrolian elements, such as animal-creatures and food with shape-changing power. It is populated by a vast gallery of characters, humans, toad-looking creatures, a boy named Haku who knows Chihiro's name but suffers from existential amnesia as well, there's also a spider-human hybrid working in the boiler room, helped by minuscule black minions (the closest to comic reliefs in the film). Miyazaki drained his imagination from Japanese folklore but he creates his worlds with an instinct in detail and harmony in the drawings that would make any foreigner feel 'at home'. Some elements will certainly be lost in translation, but it's like Kurosawa's movies, the core is universal.

The clear line that became the trademark of the anime elevates the animation to the level of a noble art, one that creates realities of its own, or worlds that speak to our own perception of reality. And using his poetry and his delicate artistry, Miyazaki reprises the same themes than in "Mononeke" with a few variations: the former was about the battle between men and nature but this time, it's about the inner battle, causing men to disrespect the environment, forget about their identity and embrace life like money-driven robots or faceless ghosts. And it's not much that the film is about this stuff but the way it is. The effect on environment is demonstrated through a wonderful sequence involving the washing of a putrid creature, and the lure of gain is conveyed by the "No Face" character who gets anything he wants in exchange of gold nuggets.

Things get easily out of control, until Chihiro refuses the gold nuggets because… she didn't need them. All she wanted was to save her parents. As the movie progresses, you can fell the change going on, she's not the shy little girl who couldn't even climb down stairs, she became strong, mature, confidently walking on a very tight metal pipe, symbolically coming to age after a harrowing journey.

A tale about modernity set in a traditional Japanese setting, "Spirited Away" belongs to that breed movies that embrace weirdness with such majestic confidence we can't feel more deceived when we get back to our flat and boring reality, speaking for myself, after watching two "Miazaki" in a row, I feel instinctively bored just thinking of the 'regular' animated movies.
Simply Excellent
Spirited Away is one of those movies that leaves you with a lingering sense of wonder and happiness as the credits roll. It is one of a handful of movies that after the first viewing, I'm ready and willing to watch it again immediately. I am not an anime fan; I watched this simply due to the rave reviews, and I'm so happy that I did. The only problem now is getting others to watch it ("I HATE anime!" they usually reply.)

This is not the anime I thought it would be... ie., no exclamation marks flying from characters' heads, or giant eyes or overly-dramatic reactions. It's much different from the Cartoon Network anime you might catch as you flip channels. It's a real art form. There were moments of beauty that I can't describe, like the camera soaring over the water-covered railroad tracks with the setting sun reflecting off the water.

I don't recommend movies on a whim; showing a person a movie is like giving them a gift, so I'm always careful about what movies I show to certain people; I can't think of a single person to whom I wouldn't want to show Spirited Away.

If you let yourself get caught up in the magic, it is a magical experience.
May be it's a time to change your mind?
I never understood the art of anime, manga or whatever. Always thought it's something... just not for me. I saw several "Robotech" series while being a kid, but they never amused me the same way Western animations did. But when a friend of mine suggested me to see this one, saying her kids liked it much, I thought to myself: "Anyway, why not?"...

Well, may be I will never see anime again. Just because it's hard to imagine some other movie can be as good as this one. Screamingly-amazing, and no less. The characters, the music, the backgrounds are truly wonderful. A definitely must-see for everyone interested in animation regardless of it's time. Even people who dislike anime for some reason got to see this one. Truly educational experience, that is.

The look of couple of characters was someway familiar to me. May be I saw something like that in Russian animation pieces of early 80's and 90's? Or is it just the Animation Spirit kidding around?
Mystical and enchanting. A key to another world.
Mystical. Enchanting. A key to another world. There are so many ways to describe this movie. The movie focuses on a young girl who is trapped in a sort of "spirit world". When her mother and father are turned into pigs, young Chihiro has to save her parents before they're cooked and eaten. It may sound silly, but this tale has more to it than farm animals. When Chihiro is frightened, she runs off. When a boy finds her, he tells her that she must get a job at "The Bath House". A sort of retreat for spirits. But to do this, she must speak with Yubaba. The witch who rules The Bathhouse. After Yubaba agrees to give Chihiro some work. She takes her name away from her. And she is then called "Sen". While shes at the bath house, she is put under very hard work. I could say more, but that would be foolish of me. This is a great movie that I think people of all ages should see for themselves. Its an enchanting and heartwarming story that I've watched over and over again and have never gotten sick of it. It has been another inspiring movie from Haiyo Miazaki that is above all his best yet. A 10 out of 10 for this wonderful movie.
An extraordinary achievement of animation, perhaps the best ever made
Upon hearing that this became Japan's highest grossing film ever, I went out of my way to look for a theater that had this movie here in the states. I traveled some, paid top dollar for the ticket, and, after seeing it, was totally blown away by the experience I had. I had no doubt in my mind that I have seen the best movie of the year, and quite possibly the best animated movie I have EVER seen.

The story starts with a young girl named Chihiro, and her family, moving to a new place. When they wander into what seems like an abandoned theme park and her parents start to eat prepared food (but with no one around to attend them), they turn into pigs. Chihiro runs and encounters a bathhouse for the gods and spirits. With the help of a young boy named Haku, Chihiro learns that in order to reverse the effects of her parents dilemma, she must work in the bathhouse. Life isn't easy, not even for the gods. She'll come across bizarre creatures & places. She will learn hard work, the sense of loss, greed, & the importance of friendship and love.

It's dreamy-like quality, it gorgeous scenes, and it's incredible list of characters (frogs that talk, a dragon, a baby that is 12 feet tall, a multi-armed boiler-room man) will keep you glued to the story.

Children will love this film, yet it is sophisticated enough for adults to enjoy and relish in it's beauty. It does have it's scary bits and images, however, so very young children may be frightened. But this is still the type of movie that you go out and buy, even if you don't have children. So imaginative is the world that Chihiro falls in, thoughts of 'Alice in Wonderland' & 'The Wizard of Oz' may come to mind. But 'Spirited Away' ends up with it's own originality. It's a timeless piece, and will eventually be a classic that will no doubt be shown to generations.

In the DVD, Disney made sure that the voice acting for the English version is top-notch, but, even if you don't liked dubbing, you have the option to switch to Japanese with subtitles.

How could 'Spirited Away' become the first anime film to be nominated for, AND WIN an Academy Award? How did it gross $200 million before it even came to the states? The answer lies in mastermind creator Hayao Miyazaki. So well known in Japan, he is now getting the recognition he deserves internationally. With past hits like Princess Mononoke, Miyazaki and his studio, Ghibli, have created outstanding features that very few animation studios can even match. Their movies are hand-drawn, without all the CGI that many studios are using. Amid the fact that Disney has distributed these treasures, I would say that there isn't much in the Disney vaults that can even come close to matching what Miyazaki and his studio have produced.

Do not hesitate to watch this magical, enchanting, and rare gem that we have the privilege to see. And if you have seen it, go out of your way to view the rest of Miyazaki's films, like 'Nausicaa', 'Castle in the Sky', & 'Kiki's Delivery Service'.

Undeniably a perfect 10 out of 10
Hollywood Conspiracy to smother Asian films
I don't get it.

Someone should forward the many positive IMDB user comments here to Disney. I can't help but feel there has been a blatantly mishandled distribution strategy for this film in the US of A.

Despite its near 100% critical praises and its massive US$200 million box office take even before its American release, Spirited Away is still playing in less than 100 theatres nation wide, which caused it to undeservedly languish in the lower reaches of the American movie charts even as we speak.

There has been much speculative criticism over Disney conspiratorial mishandling of Mayazaki's last film, the classic Princess Mononoke. It has since been disproved as an urban legend and the benefit of the doubt was given to Disney. How could it be possible that a company like Disney would willingly sacrifice profits for a greater aim of secretly smothering Mayazaki films for fear of adversely affecting its own vault of animated films?

Sadly, the present state for "Spirited Away" will definitely be re-surrecting this previously dispelled conspiracy theory. Unless the marketing/ distribution strategy for Spirited Away is revamped completely (i.e. a massive `Toy Story like' promotional campaign followed by a well deserved wide release relaunch), this lingering tainted image for the mouse company and Hollywood at large will likely remain.

You heard it here first. Expose Hollywood for what it is, a sinister oligopolistic business enterprise with hidden agendas of buying up distribution and remake rights of worthy Asian films, so as to smother them and minimise their chances of American success, thereby safeguarding their own selfish financial and market interest.

Its so disgustingly evil it makes me sick.
