One of Studio Ghibli's masterpieces, Laputa is the story of a boy who is determined on the fact that his father once saw a floating castle in the sky but none believed him. During his daily chores, he happens to meet a girl with a magical pendant that made her float when she fell. As the story advances, we meet many interested parties who come looking for the girl and all of them have one thing in common: They are searching for Laputa. As the mysteries unfold, we are taken more closer to Laputa. And while this happens. We Watch Spellbound! Although Laputa sounds like a children's fairy tale, it is actually the tale of bravery and keeping your promises. While the adults in the movie rely on hatred, piracy and greed, the two children rely on each other and finally succeed to defeat the bad. It's the ultimate Good vs Bad film that is rarely made these days... Laputa deserves more attention also because of the fact that it was crafted by one the most innovative artist of our time, Hayao Miyazaki, who is an expert in bringing out the child out of us... Highly Recommended...
So enjoyable! Hats off to Miyazaki's imagination!...
