Howl's Walking Castle by Miyazaki

Seen tonite with Catherine, Miyazaki's latest opus. Wonderful characterization, beautiful design and art, anti-war theme, and the classic in all his works: be yourself, be true. Don't let others tell you who you are. It's prettier, easier than Mononoke, less wacky than Chihiro. A must-see :D Location : Avenue Ledru Rollin, Paris, France

You're quite welcome, Julia!

It was a blast. The whole crowd had stars in their eyes when we stepped out into the rain...

Kitten, I think kids would like it, yes. It has some (slightly) scary moments, but also a happy ending, no unremittingly bad characters, and it has a wonderfully magical atmosphere.

James, I'd had to try to rank his works. Suffice it to say that it is more accessible and less scary than Mononoke-Hime, less wacky than Chihiro, and a wonderful time in any case!
