I’m completing my Studio Ghibli movie watching series after subscribing to HBO Max.

Today I decided to watch the critically acclaimed Spirited Away movie and I’m going to share with you guys my thoughts about it.

Let’s jump into this review of Spirited Away.

I watched Spirited Away – review | Studio Ghibli

Summary: A girl and her parents are whisked away to the spirit world as they move to another city.

Firstly, the introduction was laughable.

The way the parents decided to take a short cut just to go exploring like Dora on a moving day doesn’t make any sense to me logically. Also the parents just chowing down on random food and exploring a town with no people in it made absolutely no sense. The child was the only one with some sense which is wild to me.

Spirited Away was a story of being selfish and living selflessly.

One of the things I enjoyed about this movie was how the story taught that you shouldn’t over indulge and that it’s okay to say no. Focusing on what’s important is crucial instead of focusing on yourself and your own wants versus needs.


The animation was beautiful.

One thing I adore about the studio Ghibli movies is how beautiful the art is. I really enjoyed seeing the creation of the spirit world.

I also enjoy how love is the focus of this movie.

Love trumps all which is what this movie reveals. Love is precious. Love is kind and that’s what I value about this movie a lot.

Do I recommend watching Spirited Away?

It’s a great movie to watch by yourself or with the family, It teaches that you should take what you need and leave what you don’t. Live selflessly and don’t be selfish.
