Come in, Chihiro! It looks delicious!
Will we meet again sometime?
I’m sure we will.
Promise. Now go, and don’t look back.
SPIRITED AWAY / 千と千尋の神隠し
2001 | dir. Hayao Miyazaki / 宮崎 駿
“That’s how Yubaba controls you, by stealing your name. I’ve tried everything to remember mine.”
Spirited Away (2001) dir. by Hayao Miyazaki
watching spirited away for the first time is like… being trapped in the melancholic atmosphere…. the tragic isolation and madness of no face….. feeling the same horrified smallness chihiro does.. the hopelessness of losing her misunderstanding but loving parents…… haku’s quiet betrayal, and the relief of finding out he really was a friend… the curiousity of kamaji’s boiler room, or yubaba’s decorated office…. the hope for lin to make it out of the bath house one day, the wonder of the shaddowy figures on the bus……. the world makes you feel so small and part of a true and rich world that you can only give a brief, passing glance before you must part from it, never knowing but wishing to one day see it again
