Sinopsis & Review Film Anime Howl’s Moving Castle (2004)  – Another film that is highly recommended for anime lovers is Howl’s Moving Castle . This film is one of the successful films released by Studio Gibhli , directed by Hayao Miyazaki and produced by Tosiho Suzuki . Howl’s Moving Castle is adapted from the English novel by Diana Wynne Jones of the same title.

Howl’s Moving Castle is one of the highest grossing films in Japan and on September 5 2004 premiered at the Venice Film Festival. So it’s not surprising that this film was nominated for Best Animated Feature at the 78th Academy Awards in 2006. If you are interested in the film, let’s first read the synopsis and review here.

Sophie is an 18 year old girl and the daughter of a hat craftsman in her father’s hat shop. Actually she is a beautiful girl, but she is always insecure. Sophie always thought that she was not beautiful and attractive, unlike her sister, Lattice.

One day, Sophie was on her way to Lattice who worked at another shop and met a handsome wizard who was the talk of all the girls. His name is Howl. Howl is being chased by another wizard who finally manages to escape and takes Sophie to the shop where Lattice works.

Lattice reminds Sophie to be careful of Howl, because there are rumors that Howl eats the hearts of beautiful women. But Sophie doesn’t think she’s beautiful, so she doesn’t worry about that.

It turns out that the witch who tried to catch Howl was The Witch of Waste . In the evening he went to Sophie’s shop to ask for a hat to be made. But Sophie refused on the grounds that the shop was closed. The witch was angry and cursed Sophie to become a 90 year old old woman, but Sophie couldn’t tell anyone about the curse.

Not wanting to shock her mother and sister, Sophie decided to leave the house and find a way to get rid of the curse by going to the Waste or the valley where the witches were dumped. In the valley, Sophie met a scarecrow who she managed to help and then gave him a stick to help him stand.

The scarecrow then takes him to Howl’s moving castle where he finally meets a fire demon named Calcifer and Howl’s assistant Markl. Sophie also offered to be a cleaner at the castle.

It turns out that the castle has a magical door that is controlled by Calcifer. Every time the castle doorbell rings, Calcifer will give a warning and Markl will disguise himself as an old man.

At the sound of the first bell, someone came to ask where the magician Jenkins was. However, when Markl opened the door a second time, Sophie saw different people and places. The person asked about the Pendragon wizard. Sophie thought why were there Jenkins and Pendragon in that castle? Even though here it is only inhabited by Howl, the castle owner, Markl and Calcifer.

He was curious and opened the doorknob repeatedly which took him to different places. While he was still amazed, Howl came from behind the door. So, who is Howl? Pendragon or Jenkins? Can Howl help Sophie break the curse put on her by the exiled witch?

An Imaginative Masterpiece

This film is the best film. It features strong female characters, beautiful witches, curses and villains. The most interesting element of this film is Howl’s moving castle which is Steampunk style and has a unique design because it is supported by two legs like chicken claws.

We will find several details such as breakfast and lunch which are packaged like eating at a fast food restaurant, even though we find them in a castle which usually serves luxurious royal-style food. These things give an eccentric feel to the film.

Reporting from the Loud and clear review website , Miyazaki presented the opening of the film beautifully. The scene begins with the appearance of the castle from behind thick fog. The castle moves places by jumping up and down.

The appearance of the castle from a distance in a natural setting has been used in many other Studio Ghibli films, most notably in Nausicaa in the Valley of the Wind (1984 ) and Laputa – Castle in the Sky (1986) . In this film we can see foreign objects appearing from a distance naturally. Miyazaki uses this type of opening part of a film most often.

There is also a unique imaginative character in Calcifier, the Fire Demon who eats egg shells and food scraps. Despite being a fire demon with great strength, he still likes to complain and likes praise.

There is also the character Howl who is said to be a great wizard who is also unique. He will secrete green mucus when he feels frustrated. In the film, Howl is told that he is frustrated when his hair changes color because he thinks it makes him less handsome. Howl spits out his mucus and makes everyone in the castle think it’s too much or too much.

A film that is different from the original novel

This film, directed by Hayao Miyazaki, is different from the novel version. The storyline is similar, but the film version is spiced up with Miyazaki style. The film version tells the story of Sophie whose character experiences development.

Shopie, who always considered herself an ordinary woman and had no confidence compared to her sister, who was beautiful and popular among girls, finally changed. She developed into a person who could accept that she was also a beautiful woman and had special skills besides being popular.

The scene in the film is set during the war and the main plot contains how Howl avoids the war with the excuse of pacifism, which is against war. This story is also slightly different from the story in the novel.

Another difference lies in the story of Howl and Sophie’s relationship, which in the novel is often involved in debates, but in the film these scenes are not shown much.

In the novel, the witch who cursed Sophie was supposed to be killed by Howl, whereas in the film the witch is left alive. Apart from that, the character Sophie in the film is described as having the ability to convey power to inanimate objects, whereas in the novel this is not explained.

In the novel it is explained that Sophie has two brothers, but in the film she only has one sister.

Even so, Wynne Jones, author of the novel Howl’s Moving Castle, was still satisfied with the final result of the film. As reported by Wikipedia, Jones said that this film was extraordinary even though he was not involved in making it. The story in the film is different from the book and that’s how it should be. But this film is still extraordinary.

Physical and Emotional Transformation in All Characters

Overall all the main characters in this film undergo transformation, be it due to curses, magic or disguises. For example, Sophie, she was cursed to become an old woman by a witch called The Witch of the Waste . There is also Howl’s assistant, Markl, who is originally a child, but when he goes out he disguises himself as an old man.

The most iconic visual transformation is when Howl becomes a large bird. Then The Witch of the Waste underwent a transformation using her magic to become a young woman, although in the end she returned to being a helpless old woman when she lost her magic powers.

This transformation is shown in beautiful visuals, enriching the story with many magical elements. What’s more important is that these transformations add diversity to the characters in the film.

Contains a touching moral message

This film focuses on the character Sophie who provides a very good moral message for the audience. Sophie shows the power of the heart to love. Anyone will do anything for the people we love. In the film, Sophie does everything she can to save her loved one, Howl.

However, what was most impressive was when he saved and loved the witch who was supposed to be his enemy because he had cursed her and made her a 90 year old old woman. This is what makes the people around love Sophie. This film ends sweetly with a plot twist at the end of the story.

Howl’s Moving Castle combines fantasy, realism and science into a stunning animated film. There are many things that can be taken from this film by Hayao Miyazaki.

Even though it is different from the original novel which has caused it to be criticized by several film critics, Howl’s Moving Castle is still a masterpiece that has successfully won several awards. So, who is actually going to break Sophie’s curse?
