Spirited Away | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Sukhdev Sandhu Daily Telegraph (UK) The film is strewn with casual poetry. Its colors, often blue and green, are muted and weak, like a tear-spattered love letter. Jul 17, 2023 Full Review Spirited Away | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Scott Von Doviak Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com Spirited Away is no secondhand fairytale retread; it's a fully imagined universe, populated by wondrous beings and haunting landscapes. Rated: 3.5/5 Jul 17, 2023 Full Review Spirited Away | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Jeff Strickler Minneapolis Star Tribune The plot starts suffering from dèjá vu before it's even half over. There are only so many octopus men, stink spirits and pig people you can take before they all start to blend together. Rated: 2.5/4 Jul 17, 2023 Full Review Spirited Away | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Jeffrey Peterson The Streamr Spirited Away reminds me of how our friends, our work family, or the people we pass by in life can become more familial than our blood relations. Jan 2, 2024 Full Review Spirited Away | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Carla Monfort Espinof Spirited Away is one of those films that you have to see at least once in your life: a milestone in animation that shines both in form and substance. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 5/5 Oct 2, 2023 Full Review Spirited Away | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Jordan Brooks Vague Visages A careful reframing of the typical coming-of-age narrative, Spirited Away displays a fondness those infinitely awkward years, while showing us all how important they were in making us who we are today.

A ten year old girl named Chihiro remembers falling into a river as a very young firl and nearly drowning. A ten year old girl named Chihiro encounters "No Face," a mysterious transparent spirit whose unfulfilled desires pose a danger to all who come near. Chihiro (left) and Lin, a no-nonsense bathhouse girl who dreams of the outside world, have their work cut out for them cleaning up after a foul-smelling monster. The assistant manager (left) and his frog foreman keep a watchful eye on activities at the bathhouse. Chihiro accompanies "No-Face" (left) to the home of the sorceress Zeniba (right) to seek help in breaking a spell. Yubaba's giant baby boy, Boh, and the workers at the bathhouse give Chihiro a big send off.
