Howl’s Moving Castle (U)

Director: Hayao Miyazaki. Japan 2004. 119 mins.

Not every action movie has as its heroine a 90-year-old woman, but the ordinary and extraordinary are always radically confused in Miyazaki’s work and his freestyle adaptation of Diana Wynne Jones’s novel is no exception.

Visually, it is everything a Studio Ghibli movie should be: beautiful, intricate, subtle, enchanting, and full of imaginative treats.

Laced with the fantastical exuberance that has become synonymous with the Japanese studio, it is as visually alluring a fairy tale as you are ever likely to see.
Book now

The Wind Rises (PG)

Director: Hayao Miyazaki. Japan 2013. 126 mins.

With The Wind Rises, visionary director
 Miyazaki delivers his farewell masterpiece
– and once again defies the conventional limitations of animation.

This profound and beautiful film deftly combines Ghibli’s mesmerising style with an achingly beautiful love story, and asks hard questions about humanity, creation and invention.
Book now

From Friday 22 July 2016

The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya (PG)

Director: Isao Takahata. Japan 2013. 137 mins.

The latest masterpiece from the legendary Studio Ghibli is based on a tenth–century Japanese fable. A peasant discovers a miniature girl growing inside a bamboo shoot and takes her home.

Exquisitely drawn in a style that recalls washed-out Japanese watercolours, the story is spellbinding and melancholic – an instant classic.
