Howl’s Moving Castle by Hayao Miyazaki

 Howl’s Moving Castle is an animated film of Estuido Ghibli and directed by Hayao Miyazaki, director also of “Spirited Away” which won a deserved Oscar for his illustrator. It is based on the magnificent fantasy novel by British author Diana Wynne Jones, first published in 1986. Surely many of you know the work of Miyazaki and can give an opinion on it. My opinion could not be more favorable. I fell in love at first view, like a crush. Despite being cartoons, not at all is a movie for children.


This movie is full of fantasy which overwhelms the audience and immerses you in a world of wonderful characters who do not know if they are good or bad. Everything in it, at least in my opinion, are wonderful moments, incredible scenes, very lovable characters, difficult to highlight one, although the mute scarecrow is one of the nicest and funny, not to mention Howl himself, that ramshackle castle full of nuances and strong personality which go from one place to another.howl-s-moving-castle-7



The little Sophie, the main protagonist and her innocence and ability to feel surprise and enthusiasm. And … what I can say about the drawings? Its fascinating esthetic, the colors are soft and varied in the city and countryside, and dark and gloomy elsewhere where battles roar and devastation. Miyazaki is an undoubted genius to create atmospheres and anyone who has seen any of his movies will know what I’m talking.howl-s-moving-castle-studio-ghibli-21065884-761-427


Finally, I can only express my astonishment once again before this display of imagination and surrender to this hulk of castle that moves with the agility of a human being through the mountains and all this to the beat of one of the most beautiful melodies that I’ve heard in an animated film. Only with hear it almost feel transported to the surprising world of Howl.


Enjoy, my friends!
