movie review spirited away the new feature from the director of princess mononoke is amazing and beautiful. A little girl and her parents wander by accident into the spirit realm and become trapped there unable to escape. The girls' parents turn into pigs, and Chiroko has to fend for herself. The spirit realm is populated by all sorts of strange beasts and ghostly creatures and surrounded by water. With a little help, Chiroko finds herself working in the spirit bath house of Yubaba -- an ugly witch to end all ugly witches! The creatures are fantastic, the backgrounds are gorgeous, the girl convincing as she struggles with her fears and despair. A Japanese version of alice in wonderland perhaps. And it is a fun trip down the rabbit hole.
