"Flying used to be fun until I started doing it for a living" ~Kiki


I’m actually speechless. I loved every single Miyazaki movie I’ve seen so far, but this one THIS ONE HAD SOMETHING MORE MAN!!!
I felt like I could literally connect with Kiki, her character was so damn relatable I couldn’t help but weeping. This movie really touched my soul. 
I know It might seem a simple animated movie for kids, but It’s so much more than that! It’s a beautiful journey of a little girl who starts turning into an adult and becomes aware of her abilities and the importance of being independent. It’s the story of a young woman who learns how to take care of herself and how to face difficulties. 
Kiki represents us all. She is every young girl who’s eager to find her place in the world. She is scared, but she’s strong and hardworking, she wants to have friends, but she is mean to the boy who cares for her cause she doesn’t know how to behave with guys her age, she is a bit clumsy, but she is brave and she never gives up.
Her story, in addition, shows a very pivotal point of every young person exploring the world for the very first time: the moment when something that you used to do It naturally or something that you used to love turns out to be difficult or even impossible to do when It becomes a sort of work or obligation. It happened the same thing to me. Cinema has always been my greatest passion, but when I started preparing my first exam I got scared, I wasn’t feeling as interested as I was before, but then I realized that It was just the fact of knowing that I had to prepare an exam that made me insufferable. I hadn’t stop loving cinema, how could I? Cinema is my life. I just started looking at It in a different way, as a sort of future work instead of a passion. Indeed people grow up and they change the way they look at things as time passes. That’s the same for Kiki. She always felt flying was natural to her, but then when It became her sort of work she couldn’t do It anymore. However, she manages to fly again when she realizes she has to help a friend and that’s another great thing about this movie: FINALLY A GIRL SAVES A BOY THANK YOU!!!
Hayao Miyazaki has always been ahead of his times, that’s It that’s the thing. He has always surprised me in a great me, but this time... this time he literally blew my mind. I really found myself in Kiki and I truly felt represented by her. This is a very important movie for every little girl facing the passage towards adulthood. This film will warm your heart and will make you feel stronger and more aware of your abilities. Don’t underestimate animated movies, they have a lot to say and besides, you can’t miss gorgeous gems like this one, trust me! 

P.S: how is it possible that both Kiki and Ursula were dubbed by the same person and I didn’t notice that???
Btw I think I have a crush on Ursula I mean I have a weak spot for young beautiful artists that live in the forest in a cabin you know...
