4.5 out of 10 Miyazaki strikes again.
Una from Dublin, 30 Jun 2007
Miyazaki strikes again, with a fantastic tale of mystery and moral goodness suitable for all the family, although younger members might find some bits slightly frightening. Fantastic moral lessons about beauty being more than skin deep, the value of persistence and the importance of being true to yourself are conveyed without seeming preachy, with the fantastic graphics you'd expect from a Miyazaki movie. One of my favourites at the moment. Well worth a watch!

4 out of 10 very ,very good
Nuala from Dublin, 30 Jan 2009
I found this to be a fascinating piece of work, beautifully animated and voiced over, however I did find the story a little erratic but it still held your attention right up to the very end. This is an art piece so the brain dead need not bother with it (you just won’t get it) for all others, it’s a must see. Nuala

4.5 out of 10 Howl's moving story
Aidan from Dublin, 11 Dec 2007
Another quirky flight of fancy from Japan's most bankable anime studio. Warm characters, light fantasy and some truly dazzling set-pieces make this a tremendously memorable and haunting tale. Less complex than Spirited Away, perhaps, but none the worse for it...

4.5 out of 10 My Family's Favourite
Andrais from Dublin, 28 Jun 2008
This has surpassed Spirited Away as my family's favourite (10, 11, & 13 year olds). I think they find the unusual story line a refreshing break from the formulaic story lines of Hollywood films.

4 out of 10 Expressive and fun animated movie
David from Dublin, 11 May 2010
Ghibli Studios sure love to get the idea of flight, expression and fairy tales into their movies and this one is a great example of it.

What's it about....
Oscar-winning director Hayao Miyazaki, Japan's premier animator and co-founder of Studio Ghibli, takes viewers on an amazing animated adventure that celebrates the power of love to transform and the resiliency of the human spirit in the face of adversity. Sophie, an ordinarily average teenage girl working in a hat shop, finds her life thrown into turmoil when she is literally swept off her feet by a handsome but mysterious wizard named Howl and is subsequently turned...
