Kiki’s Delivery Service

A young witch, on her mandatory year of independent life, finds fitting into a new community difficult while she supports herself by running an air courier service. With its skybound female protagonist, sarcastic feline sidekick, and gently whimsical tone, Kiki’s Delivery Service is perhaps as important as My Neighbour Totoro in defining the Ghibli template. It’s an easygoing adventure about a youngster venturing out into the world for the first time – in this case the 13-year-old witch of the title, who leaves magic school and ventures to a European-inspired town and launches a broomstick courier service. The stakes are low, which is entirely the point – but Kiki’s world is rendered beautifully, with a soaring serenity to the flight sequences. (G, 103m)
