Kiki's Delivery Service Review

Plot:
A young witch, on her mandatory year of independent life, finds fitting into a new community difficult while she supports herself by running an air courier service.

This film is a masterpiece. It was a joy to watch from start to finish. It didn't take a lot to grab me. There's a shot in the beginning where Kiki gets on her broom and the wind starts blowing on her face. It's a beautiful shot and I was hooked right then.

Just like the old man's previous work My Neighbour Totoro, this film isn't plot heavy and is primarily a coming of age story. When Kiki arrives in the city, nothing is easy for her. She has to do a lot of menial jobs to get by, and she meets all sorts of people along the way, some of whom are memorable characters.

Kiki's character arc is written extremely well, with her undergoing highs and lows, getting dejected, being encouraged by others and finally becoming her own. This probably doesn't need to be mentioned either but the art and animation are exceedingly amazing, at par with today's anime. And the music is just as lovely as Totoro.

Overall this is a great film from start to finish with amazing characters, animation, music and is worth watching.

" Justice is subject to dispute; might is easily recognized and is not disputed. So we cannot give might to justice, because might has gainsaid justice, and has declared that it is she herself who is just. And thus, being unable to make what is just strong, we have made what is strong just."

They are a staple of every movie directed by Miyazaki.
