Howl's Moving Castle

When an unconfident young woman is cursed with an old body by a spiteful witch, her only chance of breaking the spell lies with a self-indulgent yet insecure young wizard and his companions in his legged, walking home.

We watched this beautiful movie on Saturday afternoon. Now, I'm a huge fan of Hayao Miyazaki's movies, so I wasn't surprised by how much I enjoyed it! He's got this wonderful, fantastical and innocent way of telling an interesting story. And this one was magical!

Howl's voice was portrayed by Christian Bale. I personally think his sultry voice gave Howl an added texture I really enjoyed. The story was intriguing and filled with likeable characters. Sophie - the main character - goes through an awful tranformation, but even then her strength shines through and she remains kind-hearted.

I highly recommend this gorgeous movie. The visuals are breathtaking and the moving castle looks stunning. This is a piece of someone else's imagination I absolutely LOVED visiting!
