fairly insightful but overall inspiring

This doco is a closer look into the world of the most inspiring animation house in the world - Studio Ghibli. If you aren't already familiar, or in my case, obsessed with this animation crew, the main contributors are Isao Takahata ("My Neighbors the Yamadas" - 1999, "Grave of the Fireflies" - 1988) and Hayao Miyazaki ("Howl's Moving Castle" - 2004, "Princess Mononoke" - 1997, "Spirited Away" - 2001) who, is by far the visual genius at the Ghibli office. Miyazaki has delivered some of the most inspiring visuals of the highest quality with fantasy landscapes and characters that are incomparable to any other, I can vouch for this with "My Neighbor Totoro" (1988) high up in my list of favourite films.

Interviews with all the key Ghibli players are present: Ghibli President, Toshio Suzuki; key directors Takahata and of course Miyazaki

  • plus other amusing/enlightening interviews - for example a tour of


the Ghibli world via the 'biggest fan of Ghibli'. The Ghibli crew talk about their experiences working on the productions, the people they collaborated with, and the 'Ghibli experience' being a ride where fun is the primary objective. You also get a guided tour of the infamous Ghibli Mueseum by the manager of the praised museum, Miyazaki's son, where you'll see full size plush versions of Totoro and many of the characters in the films. Other content worth mentioning is visits to the locations that inspired Miyazaki's back drops, which as you'd expect, are huge tourist attractions, minus Princess Mononoke in person. Many movies are mentioned throughout as well as enough discussion with the major players, however it's more of an overview of the films and the Ghibli unit as a whole, so don't expect to see what colour underwear Miyazaki wears on Tuesdays.

Being a Ghibli nut, I still learnt a lot with this doco, no point where I was bored, it gave me a buzz to see more! However this is coming from a Ghibli fan so it's hard to disconnect from this to see if others would find it interesting, plus it doesn't go as deep as some Ghibli freaks would like.
