This is a beautiful and gentle film about a young witch (daughter of a witch) who by tradition has to leave home and set herself up in a distant city. The movie is set somewhere in scandanavia? in a "fantasy" period that is almost reminiscent of the 1930's or possibly the 1950's they have TV but airships seem to be big news - so go figure...
This comming of age story of our young heroine - will resonate with boys and girls as well as moms and dads and offers some real life lessons but mostly its a magical roller coaster without the dark undertones that are embodied in movies like Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, howl's moving castle etc...
Kiki is a hero that transends gender and takes you on a feel-good journey without the added dose of sticky sugar that permeates Disney films. The animation is beautifull and delivers as only Studio Ghibli can deliver - great for the whole family...

What a beautiful story. I had to import it as a gift for my granddaughter. It still has the innocence that lacks in a lot of stories these days.
A little witch called Kiki (my granddaughter's name), comes to age and she sets out to find what her special talent in life is. Her cat accompanies her (my Kiki has a black one called Mia) on her journey into life.
Not known in South Africa at all, but it was recommended by a friend from England and therefore I ordered it. If you are a South African and remember Heidie, you would love this.
