    1. Great review Mercedes! 2tp. You have explained the storyline, although try not to give too much away about the film.

        1. Well done Mercadies I liked the part when you said that her new name changed her life dramatically. From Pollyanna

  6. A film review of Spirited Away by Evie L.

    A girl named Chihiro and her family are moving house. They passed Chihiro’s new school and she stuck her tongue out. Soon they came across a tunnel and they decided to go through. It took them into a fantasy world.
    Chihiro’s parents found some cafes and sat down at one. Meanwhile, Chihiro wandered off and met a boy called Haku. He warned her to go home. When Chihiro returned to her parents, they had been turned into pigs by the witch Yubaba. Chihiro was trapped in this strange place.
    Finally, she had to play a game and guess which pigs were her parents. She guessed that none of them were, and so Yubaba changed her parents back into humans. Then they went home.
    My favourite part was when the sister of Yubaba, Zaniba, says to No face “well done,” in a kind voice. I didn’t like when Yubaba turned Chihiro’s parents into pigs. My favourite character is Chihiro.
    I would recommend this film for 7 year olds and above. This is about 89% out of 100.

  7. A film review of spirited away by Tiffany.

    Storyline: This film is about a young girl called Chihiro who lived With her family. Throughout the film you will discover that Chihiro comes across life changing obstacles. However there is one challenge that only a miracle would solve the problem. Chihiro meets good and bad characters, some help her and some make things worse.

    What I liked best: I liked the part when all chihiro’s problems are solved.
    What I didn’t like: there is not much in this film that I didn’t enjoy.

    Favourite character: Chihiro because she inspires me with her bravery!

  8. My film review of spirited away by Evie.p

    Chihiro a young shy girl was moving house but wanted to stay at her old school and she is very sad. Her parents take the wrong route and find a entrance to a abandoned theam park. At night a boy named haku tells her to go home, Once Chihiro had ran to her parents she found out they were pigs. She also finds out she is trapped in a world full of spirits and magic. Chihiro finds a lot of friends on her way like haku and a spirit called no face. Ubaba (the evil one ) wants to stop Chihiro saving her parents. Even though Ubaba steals Chihiros name and turns int into Sen, she is still brave enough to save her parents. Through the film you will find out that Chihiro changes from being shy to really brave.

    I liked all of the film because it was humorous. My favourite part was when no face was sick in the hall way and then went excuse me. Also I liked the bit when Chihiro was on the steps going slowly and the went flying down then she smacked her face on the wall. My favourite character is Chihiro because she is very funny in almost all the film. I would give it a score of 100% because I like it so much. I would recommend it for 6 years and over.
