"... it would never have won its worldwide audience just because of its warm heart. ....It is a little sad, a little scary, a little surprising and a little informative, just like life itself."
Roger Ebert from Chicago Sun-Times
"Kiki's Delivery Service is a heartwarming, gorgeously-rendered tale of a young witch discovering her place in the world."
"is not only more sharply drawn, it has an extremely complex and adult script...has the soul of a romantic epic, and its lush tones, elegant score by Joe Hisaishi and full-blooded characterizations give it the sweep of cinema's most grand canvases."
Leonard Klady of Variety
"Spirited Away is a dazzling, enchanting, and gorgeously drawn fairy tale that will leave viewers a little more curious and fascinated by our world."
"At its best, 'Howl's Moving Castle' offers a rich fantasy of adolescent escape, of romance in the old and epic sense. At its worst, it's the most amazing 12-course meal you can't bring yourself to finish."
