Howl's Moving Castle
Starbuck [14:37] Comments: 2 []
Text review of Hayao Miyazaki's animated adaptation of Diana Wynne Jones' fantasy creation:

A breathtakingly beautiful fairytale, with oodles of warmth to keep the darkness at bay. Some great characters (especially Heen the mute dog!) and a wonderful love story, it left myself and Mrs Powersurge feeling all warm and cosy. As well as the rest of the cinema by the looks of all the end-of-film-kisses being exchanged by couples around us! Just what this slightly life-fraught reviewer needed...

The subtitled Japanese language version was terrific, but I'm also looking forward to the DVD release of the dubbed-English version so I can lose myself fully within the magnificent art.

I've got to rent this when it comes out on DVD.

It really is quite lovely!

But with darkness in all the right places.
