It’s all fun and games until Richard O’Brien’s Science Fiction/Double Feature Reprise starts playing.
I would just like to point out that the beginning and end of Spirited Away creep me out in the most delicious way possible. I’ve always been a fan of fairy tales, and not just the Grimm and Anderson stuff, almost all my life. Like the honestly faerie court stories.
Themes you see in those reflect strongly in this movie, and comparing them side by side just makes it that much more stark.
Often times you hear that if you get sucked into the fairy realm, you shouldn’t eat their food. It gives them power over you. More often than not, heroes finally escape the fairy realm after what they perceive to be a very short time (a night or a week)…
…only to find that seasons or years have passed.
‘Hey, it’s all dusty in here. Is this someone’s idea of a joke?’
CRAPPING SHIT I WHY HAVE I NEVER NOTICED THIS
This always freaked me out a little as a kid. Like the OP, I couldn’t help but wonder how long REALLY passed. I always pretended it was something like a week but… Judging by that moss, I can’t say for sure.
A week? Try much MUCH /MUCH/ longer. The plants are a good indicator but a better one is the statue. We’re seeing it from the same angle in each shot. Look in the first one before she enters, it’s not NEW but you can tell what it is.
Now look at the second frame. It’s so eroded it’s just a dull, flat stone.
That thing is solid stone, that must have taken up to, if not more than, a DECADE to wear down that much.
Not to mention that there are new trees next to the car. Just remember how long it actually takes for trees to grow real quick.
Evidence is suggesting they were in there for maybe around 20-30 years.
And people thought I was silly when I’d bring this up…
The only thing that bothers me about this theory is the car- if several decades had really passed, the car would be in really bad shape. However, there’s no rust and it still runs just fine.
That’s because you haven’t seen the sequel, in which we witness the previously unknown story of the car’s hijinks. We’ve all enjoyed this coming of age story through the perspective of Chihiro’s daring adventure and the rescue of her parents, but the story we didn’t know was that of her family car, Kuruma. Little did we know, while Chihiro was finding her footing and courage in this strange and unusual world, Kuruma was always there, guiding and helping from the shadows. We truly owe Chihiro’s success to brave little Kuruma, who saved the day and won the hearts of many before scurrying back through the tunnel, covering itself with leaves and twigs, and, being of humble build and character, allowing Chihiro to believe that it was all her. But we know, like a tight-knit group of friends’ inside joke, we see the twinkle in Kuruma’s headlight as it safely drives its family to the future world in which they now belong.♥ 60916 Notes / Tue Jun 18th, 2013 ≡ reblog
