"Spirited Away" Movie Review Essay & Film Analysis

After becoming acquainted with 'Gone' Hayao Miyazaki, all I have known anime series seemed normal trash, and he himself Hayao warns parents to protect their children from this abundance, not clog them, and their heads essentially useless things. As in the world of books, and animation need to pass phony and thoughtfully dwell on serious works.
So is the film 'Spirited Away'. After reading the reviews here, I saw that there is a lack of understanding of how the plot details (for example, that all the pigs - a bewitched people), and a profound lack of understanding. Probably, it is necessary to keep something bright and clean from childhood to see such works.
Who is this movie? It seems to be for kids, but this film would not have been a masterpiece if it were not given for each age group something of their own, something important. For adults - it is an opportunity to plunge into the wonderful world of childhood, full of color and charm. Image Tehiro written by Miyazaki simply with fatherly love, and this feeling is transmitted to us. It has two important things for us, but the third, most importantly, the film gives us a fertile ground for thought.
dwell here in detail. What is the main hidden subtext of the picture? It is clear that the age-old problem of evil-good, but it is delivered? Obviously it's not about the good and the evil witch Tehiro Yubabe, of course not. There have written that Miyazaki is the master, the artist is not contrasted to one another. This is not predictable and dull rationalist Disney World, where all at a glance - this is good, and there, black and with teeth - is evil. Surprisingly, Miyazaki animated world where realistic and truer than it might seem.
Yet we can see there is the main evil. How do you think what? You will not believe this Faceless. Surprised? How so? No, here it is not a classic villain, we are used by Disney and Hollywood. Evil - a piece multi-faceted and complex. It is poured in each of us, because we are, in fact, faceless. We are like blind kittens, we come into this world, and, with rare exceptions, such as the blind and go out of him. Do not understand the essence of things, the world, we judge it, deny, despise ...
Who is the Faceless? By name it is clear - a person (spirit), remaining without a face, without her man. Who, who from the world of real Miyazaki compared with this character? We, adults, who grew up and lost jewels of children's perception of the world, the gift of spontaneity, purity, sincerity, when the feelings fade, their palette of impoverished internally when we substitute the outside, overgrown with mask. But even if you become impersonal, but secretly, somewhere from the depths of the soul in you, like a root through the asphalt breaks craving for something beautiful, bright, then this film is for you. Then it becomes clear that the main evil in the land -. Leave it so faceless and live with no hope of salvation
Look at the characters - Yubabu, many employees of the Faceless. They are neither bad nor good time. World baths spirits repeats our imperfect world, in the beginning he was very unfriendly takes Tehiro. Faceless but stretches to it, unconsciously feels - the girl can give him something very important, it is that he has long been lost, but kept that memory and it does not give his soul peace. This character is very dear to me. On the way to find his happiness, he makes a lot of mistakes. See how he is helpless in the scene of a meeting with Tehiro when she runs subside Haku. He was angry and, above all, to itself
man should give, give your heart -. Is ingeniously simple and at the same time the most complicated formula of love. Faceless remembers only that he should give something, he sees as greedy people on the gold, but in the end, it does not bring anyone schate and, most importantly, very impersonal. Bitter pie, a piece that could save parents Tehiro, became a milestone in the life of rotary Faceless. He was on the same day, finally finds his house and, presumably, love. And I want to ask - and how often do you think as well just have a home where you can return to where you are waiting for loving parents and a close people? Surely rarely
Tehiro -. An ordinary child, but it is not yet spoiled by the adult world, not teach falsehood, hypocrisy, so far only gold bauble beautiful and nothing more. She must overcome her fear, neuvernnost to defend loved ones, and it does it. We ask here - that is love. Love of the world, to people, when it has a wonderful feeling, the world, and people respond to you the same. At the end of workers baths genuinely happy for Tehiro. Even Yubaba smiles at her goodbye, hiding his smile. It's amazing how one person can change the world around them ...
Yubaba. And I would like to say a little about it. She does not know love, therefore, closed in their own little world of jewels and gold. Even the kid she locked in her gilded cage. if she gives love to your baby? We can say that, yes, but love is unreasonable. The irrationality of love - is when things higher (spiritual) are replaced by order of things lower, real, tangible. Often love is trying to buy expensive, beautiful things. But in the world Faceless it can and ride, but in the still unspoiled world's children, even the little Bo, despite the best efforts of Yubaby, remember one day trip with Tehiro and it will be much tsenee and more important than the pile of pillows, chocolates and toys.
Keep his humanity and images Haku Tseniby, grandfather Kamadzi, Rin. Grandpa Kamadzi if I am not mistaken, Miyazaki wrote as if to himself) In any case, they really look like. Kamadzi very finely and deeply understands the world, is good by nature, it actually keeps the work of all baths. Tseniba as Kamadzi confronts image Yubaby. So her sister finds its quiet happiness in the world of rural life and it schate also present, not a perverse lust for possession
This film can be a very long time to speak -. About the world of spirits, on the environmental context, etc. I decided to tell that me excited in the film to the core, which made reading numerous retsezntsii, interviews and work of the authors themselves, and most importantly - watch the film several times, as well as many other fine works of Hayao Miyazaki and his friend Isao Takahata.
