Kiki’s Delivery Service

JAPAN | 1989 | 103 min | G

We might be screening this movie after Halloween, but our love of witches is non-stop! Kiki’s Delivery Service follows Kiki–a thirteen year old witch with a black cat familiar named Jiji–as she embarks on a rite of passage into adulthood away from home.


In order to utilize her powers, find favour with the locals, and earn an income, Kiki sets up a delivery service in partnership with a bakery; what results is a series of adventures, and stacks on stacks of sad, breakfast pancakes that come from a box mix, appropriately labelled as “jiburi no hot keki mix” (i.e. Ghibli’s hot cake). Partially an ode to Pippi Longstocking, and unintentionally familiar to Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Kiki’s Delivery Service discusses how hard it can be to be a teenager, and especially a teenager with powers. – CORA JAMES
