Among the highest-grossing Japanese productions in history, Howl's Moving Castle is also Hayao Miyazaki's favorite of his own films — high praise from the revered anime auteur responsible for the likes of Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke. Miyazaki adapted (and made significant changes to) Diana Wynne Jones' novel in his allegorical response to the Iraq War, centering the story around a young girl who joins up with a wizard after being transformed into an old woman by a witch. (Fret not, purists: This is the subtitled version, not the dubbed one.)
