Kiki's Delivery Service (1989)



Reviews and Comments

Like all of Hayao Miyazaki's films, Kiki's Delivery Service illustrates how misleading (and ignorant) it is to lump all anime together as abrasive kiddie fare or shameless sensationalism. Kiki's Delivery Service is a wonderful story that captivates and inspires. With the qualification that it probably won't sit well with those who object to Harry Potter or Bewitched, I recommend this wholeheartedly to families looking for alternative entertainment to the loud, lumbering cartoons on American television. Kids will surely love this film, and it's just as likely to touch the hearts of adult viewers too.
