No Face

“No Face’s orgy of excess is ultimately contained, allowing the film’s final message to be one of somewhat guarded optimism for the survival and even perhaps the renewal of traditional culture. The agent of this renewal is, of course, Chihiro, transformed from her earlier apathetic and dependent self (not, perhaps, so different from No Face in certain respects) at the beginning of the film to a figure of moral authority and courage by the end.”
