Master animator Hayao Miyazaki directs this fantasy adventure about Chihiro, a ten-year-old girl who is leaving behind everything she knows to move with her parents to a new home. Along the way, they stumble across a tunnel that leads to a spooky, deserted open-air restaurant where Chihiro's parents sit down and begin to eat. But she is uncomfortable with their new surroundings and wanders off to explore further. She meets a boy, Haku, who explains to her that the world they have entered is a holiday resort for spirits who have left behind their exhausting earthly duties. After discovering that her greedy parents have been turned into pigs, she learns the number one rule of the new world she is now part of: laziness is not tolerated, and only working hard can enable her to break the spell on her parents. With its fantastical critique of an adult world of capitalism and wasteful consumption, entwined with the simple tale of a girl finding herself and learning to get by on her own, the film has been dubbed a modern-day 'Alice in Wonderland', and won an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.

The front cover design is great - gives a 3D effect and captures the great art in the movie. However, the back of the steelbook case isn't so great featuring pale looking No Face covering almost the entire case. It would have been better if it was just blank or a motif instead. It's also VERY hard to get out the disc. It doesn't have one of those push button mechanisms for taking out the disc and you really have to bend it to take it out! BD menu design isn't too great with a simple screenshot and some white text but other than that, the 16 year old movie looks great! There's such a big difference from watching this on DVD.
