As with all of the other Miyazaki movies this one has meaning and thought and is the kind of movie I just love to curl up with on a Sunday afternoon and delve into. It's such an easy and visually captivating film. It's always been my belief that animation can open the mind a bit wider than anything a standard script for real actors can represent, because you can literally do anything. Drawn and painted by hand, this artful masterpiece is one I'm very glad I didn't somehow miss.
An excellent story on how nature and humans collide. This breathtaking movie will have your heart pounding. The charactors are deep, story plot dramatic and there's even a hint of romance! An excellent movie to watch.
A rousing film exploring humanity's often tenuous relationship with nature and how greed can blind us to the point of disaster. But at the same time, the ability to redeem oneself is stressed here, as it is in many of Miyazaki's films. One the wonderful things about the films produced by his studio is that there is no such thing as a purely good or evil character. Everyone has faults, some bigger than others, but ultimately, their motives are based in good intentions if looked at from their point of view.
