Review (literally "Witch's Delivery Service"). Kiki, a 13-year old witch, lives in a world not too different from our own. At 13, she has to leave home and find a city where she will earn her own living, using her magical talents. In this delightful movie, she faces difficult problems of self-reliance, finding things do not always turn out as she hoped, suffers the agonies of wondering if a boy really likes her, and makes friends. Some critics have complained that not a whole lot happens, but this is a mistake, as most of the conflicts are internal. Typically pleasing is the scene where Kiki and the young artist talk in the artist's house. A wonderful and wise piece of entertainment.
