I Wonder because if you are the world of ghosts and spirits, you should they are somewhere to eat, sleep and take a warm bath?

Deserted streets, abandoned dozens of restaurants, frighteningly good mood young family, which is fun stepping in the unknown, not feeling the danger — all reminiscent of the beginning of Hollywood movies maniacs who like spiders lurk in such warm places and are waiting for their hour of triumph. But the intersection of ever seen the movies and standard stories end. Then viewers are in for a deep dive into the fantastic, but extremely realistic world. And the world throughout the film we will watch a ten-year-old girl Chihiro who gets into a mysterious world inhabited by ancient spirits and mysterious gods. To hope to return home and rescue the parents, little Chihiro will be asking for work baths witch Baby where people come to relax and wash contaminated ghosts.

But Chihiro the beginning wanted to give rash adult curiosity and keep this strange deserted town. Here it immediately felt that something was wrong, in contrast her parents are fun and relaxed, began to deal with single Goodies, in one of the deserted restaurants. Maybe the children feel keenly the danger, afraid of all the ghosts and monsters because just remember that this magical world really exists? Perhaps if they are a few remember their real names, but not the ones that give them a parents with the birth? Maybe that's why children are not able to speak when born, so as not telling the adults the truth about the true world? And then we Mature and slowly, almost all forget it: their names, their purpose in life, your courage and strength? On the duration of the film, the audience will breathe with this little girl the same air, thinking how she, surprised at her fear and try to fight...

"Spirited away" — tale, guess the plot development, and especially the end, which is simply impossible. This film — the fruit of a rich imagination of a great genius, a dying mammoth hand-drawn animation Hayao Miyazaki. "Gone ghosts" absorbs with the first minute touches at the same time a fantastic event and absolutely realistic behavior in these strange circumstances. And no 3D couldn't good fantasy of Hayao Miyazaki by the realism!

And after all, to pass the high human feelings try all the multipliers. Americans draw cartoon animals compassionate emotional eyes, decorate them pants make you fall in love with sebadoh-speaking animals. And even the good old Russian cartoons are not give a sense of such realism to their characters, all of them the most fantastic, and all natural human reactions are replaced by heroic deeds or magical transformations. Chihiro is far from the image of brave heroes and she did not helps a gang of dancing animals. Its image reflects the human condition, caught in the difficulties, the extraordinary and even dire circumstances. When she we could a steep staircase, located on a cliff, she will be a long time to stand, to fear, to cower, to despair at the region, daring to take a step. And right would we had to her. When it will be asked to participate in the room barefoot — ask a perfectly natural question, where to put then shoes? And because we would be too logical I would think about it first thing. But if you need to sign the paper, but not around table, spin around, put the paper on the floor display your signature in such an uncomfortable position. And because I had to do we would in such a situation. And even donated an old witch rubber band for hair don not in one magical wave of the hand, and with exactly how to do absolutely everything girl, not a computer Princess. In moments of despair, she is completely broken, confused and cries a lot. She will be very scary, very simple but it will be very hard. And right there should do us in any difficult situation. Perhaps then we would we — adults know how to turn of the lout in bold brave heroes.

Animation I do not love and especially the Japanese. Not mine. No in no way I want to say that it's bad, just a great anime and a good movie I will choose a movie.

Perhaps that is why all 13 years of the existence of the animated film "sen and the mysterious disappearance of Chihiro" (seriously, it better) constant rave reviews from friends and not people, I kept postponing this cartoon in a box. And it occurred — the familiar multiplier, podkinuvshy to this is some decent animated short films that I liked (!), insisted: "Watch it!" And even threw the link. And recalled. I thought decided — need it!

The first thought was this: it is very good cartoon! There are all good, even the evil sorceress, pardon the oxymoron. In the beginning of the stay, Chihiro-sen to a world of ghosts and gods all only pretending to be angry and shout on her. Dadulinqa-spider yelled, and covered in front of a servant, they say, is the granddaughter of my. The maid screamed-yelled, and before doing, felt and all the time helped. Even faceless werewolf all the time somehow stretched to heat and the kindness. Lonely like it, probably. And in this, as I thought the basic code Miyazaki in this film (and maybe in others, these also it is necessary-it is necessary to look). If you with a smile, compassion and good will belong to the world, and the world you will smile. May he first will turn your parents in to pigs and you will make working on hard work. Have you always have a choice — can Express anger, to respond to evil with evil, to mistrust. And can Chihiro, — wide open eyes and try to all the whole to see something good.

Of course, all the characters here are very nice, even a werewolf, belching eaten them. the same creatures. (Well, what, what is, what it now does anyone, anyone not to love?) But one of my favourites by far a hamster, once a child, and dragon, previously the Haku, Chihiro's friend. Well and the werewolf mind, lone he really...

PS: else — why is the house sisters of the home of the witch so like the Ukrainian hut?

This anime I looked quite by accident. Funny story, my friend (then eleven-year-old) said that watched a scary cartoon. Well, of course, for pupils of disney, this cartoon was us "the call." I listened with rapture to her a hasty retelling and got inspired. And so when a chance presented itself two years later, I see it anime. And love the masterpieces of Hayao Miyazaki. Recommend this think that wants to see something new on the screen. At least for the sake of experiment.

It was the introduction, now on main:

the Japanese were the first to understand one very interesting and profitable for a movie thing — no need to feel sorry for kids. Children under the movie is not have to rely on anyone. And yet, children in the movies themselves have to make the choice themselves to find answers and themselves out of the frightening and seemingly hopeless situations.

As well and "spirited away". Chihiro, who all life relied on mom and dad put in a situation where they do not, and she must rescue her parents. It has everything: danger, sadness, hopelessness, heavy and back-breaking work. Here it seems Chihiro breaks down, will say "can't" and give up, but not going on. The girl in the course of the film changes. It becomes independent, learns to make decisions and help others like help her. It is learning to communicate with those more and on her life. And most importantly, she lose fear. Scaredy-cat, Chihiro becomes confident in yourself the end of the movie.

This character development is interesting, coupled with that we see. And we an incredible adventure that we are still far from the land of the rising sun, the audience will seem eccentric, unusual and incredibly exciting. After all, in this world can eat your parents, the ghosts come to take baths, witch Yubaba selects your name, and her sister sends a deadly curse on someone that you love.

watch this anime, even if you not a fan of Japanese animation. Just look, try to dip in this far for you who knows, may be your first encounter with animation that has captured the hearts of millions and million admirers from around the globe, will result in a real love in future.
