Critic Reviews for Kiki's Delivery Service
The film becomes a benign guided tour of femininity ... gently broaching universal coming-of-age issues such as independence, insecurity, and even - more boldly than any Western children's movie would contemplate - sexuality.
Miyazaki's giddy, glorious seaside story about a budding young witch and her sarcastic cat.
The characters are gently and warmly rendered, and a climactic action sequence involving an unmoored dirigible hints at the stately grandiosity of Miyazaki's masterpiece Howl's Moving Castle.
Top-drawer kiddie fare for both fans of the exotic and mainstream family auds.
It's a delightful tale of a young witch coming of age, learning to recognize her own talents, and striving to serve her community.
Audience Reviews for Kiki's Delivery Service
An average Miyazaki film that doesn't develop so well its many elements into a cohesive narrative as it should - like for example the character's sudden loss of power and her inability to make friends. The result is amusing, even if not that satisfying.
even in the fantastical miyazaki gives us a realistic female character, something more true to life and down to earth than the princesses we normally get from animation with female leads. this film is a bit more reductionist than some of his better known films, and it moves a bit more slowly, but the story plays out as a bit of an allegory to the experience many of us have when looking at real life for the first time. the conversation between kiki and the girl at the cabin in the woods towards the end is something that just about all people can relate to, and it puts this film and life in general in genuine perspective. not as provocative as some of miyazaki's best films, but still good.
The first film by Hayao Miyazaki that I saw. It's still his most purely enjoyable film and features one of his best heroines.
