There is so much to see in Spirited Away, from a mud-spewing mask to a faceless entity indulging in cake. Spirited Away is a thousand films in one, where each scene forms a separate work of art. It is drawn by hand by director Hayao Miyazaki and animator Masashi Andô.  

After breaking attendance records in Japan, Spirited Away won a Golden Bear in Berlin and an Oscar for Best Animated Film.  The success is not owed to humor, as is often the case with many American animated films – the humor is subtle. Instead, Miyazaki illustrates the wind through the grass and the silence in the elevator… a true masterpiece.
