When her father takes the family across an enchanted threshold – and Mum and Dad get turned into pigs – 10-year-old Chihiro must take the hero’s journey to get home from the spirit world. Miyazaki’s masterpiece digs deep on both Japanese folktales and Western stories – like Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz – of young women who overcome a series of otherworldly trials. Studio Ghibli’s animation clinches it – it’s beautiful, weird and more than a little trippy.
