I am a huge Studio Ghibli enthusiast.
Simply everything about a Ghibli film is so stunning,
ethereal, quaint, that you just can't not fall in love
with the movie. When I first watched Kiki's Delivery Service,
the illustrations are so lovely and I wanted to live inside
that world. I can't find the perfect description to say how
beautiful it is. Watching a Ghibli film gives you that feeling
of coming home to your home as a child after a school day,
and, your mom makes you a hot cup of chocolate and whatever
food it is that your mom makes that only hers can taste so
delicious, that makes everything wonderful again-that feeling
of comfort. Any Studio Ghibli aficionado will understand this ;)
Add to this, is the superb music by Joe Hisaishi. All musical
scores he makes are just so beautiful and fitting for every scene.
He and Hayao Miyazaki are pure geniuses.
Kiki is also the first Studio Ghibli film that my daughter watched
and she loved it too. Kiki's Delivery Service, I can say, is the
first movie that ever touched her heart. Call me corny, but, yes.
Kiki was the first movie that she wanted to watch two or thrice
in a row, right after watching it, we'd watch it again.
I can she was also fascinated by Kiki's wonderful personality.
And Belle memorized the movie lines by heart, and,
the actions of Kiki and all the other characters. And B didn't ever
went out without her Kiki headband.
After Kiki, she loved Totoro and Ponyo too. She loves following
the story lines and singing along with the delightful songs.
I am happy that she loves the beautiful world of Ghibli too.
What movies do you love to watch with your children?
