My favorite animated movie out there to date. I can watch this over and over and never get tired. I own the dubbed with Christine Bale and almost every single dubbed actor does their best to make it all meld together perfectly. The animation is adorable, whimsical and endearing. The story has twists, turns, and it's heartwarming. It teaches you valuable life lessons about materialism and finding true love. It's a lovely story paired with lovely animation in a perfect execution.

One of my favorite animated films. Such a great story and I love all the characters. Also, there are a lot of known actors in this (English version). Christian Bale, Josh Hutcherson, Lauren Bacall, Emily Mortimer etc. There is a lot of humor, and there are many giggles throughout the film. Highly recommend watching this yourself. It's also great for the kids, because it's creative and thought provoking.

I am a Japanese and when people talk about Japanese anime, it is usually not about ghibli. Ghibli movies are always good story and also love beautiful picture. I hope people know all Japanese anime is nasty.

Hiyao Miyazaki never fails to deliver a gorgeous story with such a sense of wonder and magic. The animation is stunning and the Merry-go-round of life scored by Joe Hisaishi is a perfect fit. I've had the pleasure of reading the original story by Diana Wynne Jones, that this movie was based on, and the movie beautifully accentuates it even though it deviates slightly from the original. I'd highly recommend this movie to anyone who is seeing a Studio Ghibli/Miyazaki film for the first time.

This deserves like a billion stars in my book because seriously, this is my all time fave from the Ghibli studios. the story is sweet then, bitter, then bittersweet which makes it much more meaningful. the story is a romantic story with the romance secondary to the journey the two characters, howl and Sophie take and the bond that comes together among all the characters. what you think is set to be bland enters a magical world. I could watch this movie a million times and not get sick of it

Ten out of ten, will watch again. I can't even use words to describe this movie. It's animation quality is great and the music was beautifully composed. This is movie that o could watch forever. The relationships these characters have and the things they go through are just a few of the great things about this movie. Studio Ghibli did a great job with this movie, just like they've done with the rest.

My favorite Hayao Miyazaki film. I love the fact the Christian Bale voices the part of Howl making both men even hotter. Truly a magical movie with amazing visuals and great english cast. Might be a little scary to watch with young ones (the Witch of the Waste gets pretty gnarly looking) but overall a great story and worth watching.

Why oh why does this have 0 reviews. Well lemme start off by saying I've watched every known studio ghibli film produced. The designs are superb, the music is enchanting and the storyline is fantasy at it's best. It's crazy to think Hayao created all of this with just his head. His older films are better than his newer movies fyi!

How is the plot/character development? I know studio ghibli is known for the amazing art work but also for its heart-capturing story line.
