    9 / 10

    "Spirited Away" offers humor, excitement, sorrow, and laughter in a perfect blend. Miyazaki said it best himself: "(a film) for those who have been ten years old, and for those who will be ten years old." - Mikael Sundberg

    8 / 10

    The film is completely teeming with symbolism, allegories, references, undertones, and morals, to such a mild extent that it is absolutely impossible to perceive all the points, and to truly understand everything that is happening is too much to ask. - Daniel Hofverberg

    It is the beautiful and lively environments, the imaginative plot, and the surprising design of the fantasy characters that elevate "Spirited Away". - Mårten Blomkvist

    I will never be someone who loves anime but "Spirited Away" has still made me willing to give the genre more chances in the future, and I will probably watch some more movies from Studio Ghibli. - Rebecca Unnerud

    Swedish: Magical and wacky work of art
