Spirited Away

This Japanese anime movie also known as Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi, is filmed in 2001. I've watched it more than 5 times years ago and would like to recommend this show.

Spirited Away Storyline
Chihiro is a very pampered little girl and love to whine a lot. Unknowingly, her nightmare began to start as she was whining. Her parents took a wrong path into roads of tombs when their intention is to head towards their new home. However, they don't feel awkward about it. Finally, they stopped at the dead end and they came out of their car. A tunnel leads them into a beautiful garden and Chihiro's parents happily walked across an "invisible river" which will gradually lead them to a town.

This town has lots of food placed at the stores but no one is tending them. Chihiro's parents saw the delicious food and sat down greedily, thinking that they would just pay their bills later. Chihiro was scared and refused to join them. As night falls, she saw her parents turned into pigs. She was petrified and confused.

What will happen next? Go watch the movie yourself, it is an interesting movie and worth watching. I don't feel like writing the whole story out.

This movie/manga is written by Hayao Mayazaki who is also the author of Kiki's Delivery Service and Howl's Moving Castle.
