Spirited Away accurately describes the experience of the viewer as well as that of the little girl who learns courage and love. I was engrossed from start to finish by the story, masterful animation and music. The artists showed an unbelievable attention to detail and created majestic scenery as a backdrop for the story. It’s quirky, but appeals to the imagination and in a world of spirits, anything can happen. Miyazaki takes some liberties, resulting in a hybrid of Alice in Wonderland and The Neverending Story, but that description really doesn’t do it justice.
