Introduced by anime expert Helen McCarthy.
Two children set off on a hazardous hunt for the legendary flying castle Laputa, but a gang of pirates and a sinister government agent are also chasing the airborne treasure. A rollercoaster adventure in a 19th century fantasy world, with spectacular aerial battles scenes which never obscure the film's essential innocence.
Miyazaki’s lush animation provides action and emotional integrity and is a flawless anime masterclass.
