The Castle Of Cagliostro

Stars: Yasuo Yamada, Eiko MasuyamaGorô NayaSumi ShimamotoTarô Ishida | Written by Hayao Miyazaki, Haruya Yamazaki | Directed by Hayao Miyazaki

Most of us are familiar with Japanese animation powerhouse Studio Ghibli, who have for 30 years been bringing the world beautifully told stories of magical worlds and extraordinary characters, from Porco Rosso to Spirited Away. But many might not know Ghibli director and co-founder Hayao Miyazaki’s first film, without which that 30-year legacy likely wouldn’t exist: The Castle of Cagliostro.

Miyazaki has always had something of an affinity for Italy and his films don’t shy away from this influence, from Porco Rosso’s Mediterranean dogfights to even his studio’s name (many Italian WWII planes were given the name Ghibli), and Cagliostro is no different, taking place in a hyperactive stylised version of Northern Italy.

The story picks up on a pair of happy-go-lucky thieves, »
