Hauru no ugoku shiro (Howl’s Moving Castle)
2004
***½
Director: Hayao Miyazaki
Cast:

A curse turns young Sophie into an old woman. She flees home and ends up travelling on a magical moving castle whose owner Howl, a young handsome wizard, is fighting in a brutal war…or something or the other. Full credit to those who have complete understanding of the story and its characters. Nevertheless, if you allow your imagination to run wild and the amazing visuals to wash over you, Hayao Miyazaki’s animation is a delightful watch.
