Howl's Moving Castle
After seeing Spirited Away, I immediately added several of director Hayao Miyazaki's other popular films to my list of movies to see. While Spirited Away is still my favorite of his films, Howl's Moving Castle is a close second. I found it to be completely delightful. It has all the elements you would expect: magic, friendship, conflict, and of course, love. The characters are very lovable (similar to Spirited Away), and one gets the same warm feeling from both of these films. I would recommend all of Miyazaki's anime features, I believe he is a true cinematic genius.
