Howl's Moving Castle [Movie]
The curse of an evil witch turns a plain young hat-maker, Sophie, into an old woman. Sophie runs away to confront the witch and become young again when she rescues a trapped animated scarecrow. The scarecrow leads her to the giant, moving castle owned by the wizard Howl. Inside she befriends a fire demon, Calcifer, along with Howl’s young apprentice, Markl, eventually befriending Howl himself. Sophie becomes the castle’s old cleaning lady as she is swept into a journey to find the answers to both her problem and Howl’s own secrets.
Is Howl’s Moving Castle an adventure tale? A love story? Or purely a work of art like a grand painting on a humble canvas in a modest frame. This story is essential for any anime fan, you simply must watch this highlight of the Japanese animation industry. It’s hard to say any other story is better.
