Kiki is a pretty typical young girl -- except that she also happens to be a witch. On a clear, full-moon lit night, Kiki and her black cat, Gigi, set out to find their own city to work in. (In keeping with their traditions, a witch must work for a full year on their own when they reach thirteen years of age). But what sort of job can a witch who can barely handle her own broom possibly find? A courier service, of course!
Another triumph by the master Hayao Miyazaki. This one is very much a kidsí movie like Totoro, but can be easily enjoyed by fans of any age. Fantastic art, touching story and deep characters make a classic example of the work for which Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli are famous. The recent release by Disney of a dubbed version is actually quite good; the late Phil Hartman is brilliant as Gigi.
