Fishy Circumstances

The Castle of Cagliostro

I've never seen any of the Lupin manga or anime before, but theengineer very generously gave me a copy of The Castle of Cagliostro for Christmas. To make my evening a nice one despite missing out on all tonight's big events, I curled up with a glass of orange juice and watched the movie tonight. I've enjoyed all the Miyazaki movies I've seen thus far - not many, really - and had every reason to expect good things from this one. It did not disappoint!

Random other notes on the movie: I was just looking through a few of the webpages about Castle and noticed that one of them says that Steven Spielberg once called this movie "one of the greatest adventure movies of all time." And here's a review which pretty much manages to avoid spoilers.
