Movie Mezzanine

[Miyazaki] revitalizes conventional tropes, using elegant imagery to say something substantial about growing up, and he even subverts gender stereotypes along the way.

The magic of Kiki is the girl's sense of wonder in her new world, whether it's her soaring flight among the migrating geese or a bicycle ride... to see the dirigible.

With so much nasty and unpleasant stuff floating around in contemporary culture, something as good-natured as this comes as a surprise.

The characters are gently and warmly rendered, and a climactic action sequence involving an unmoored dirigible hints at the stately grandiosity of Miyazaki's masterpiece Howl's Moving Castle.

An excellent alternative to much of the frenetic, princess-driven fare that seems to dominate the genre.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

The gentlest and most sweet-tempered Miyazaki film I've seen -- yet it's not without the strange undercurrent of something slightly sinister that exists in all his works.

One of Miyazaki's most personable protagonists, a delightful cast of supporting characters, and a rambling, episodic story full of charming incident and irresistible imagery.
