Of course, this film is my favourite of all-time! It beats out classics like The Empire Strikes Back and Akira. My only problem is how Disney/Buena Vista screwed up the english translation in the dub and the sub-titles. Come on you idjits, it's a forest, not a "jungle"-- and the pronunciation of Ohmu as "Ohms" is quite irritating. Thank goodness for my bootleg copy in japanese with english subs. Maybe the Disney people ought to read some manga once in a while. If you really liked this version of the film, please take the time to find Hayao Miyazaki's original manga of Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. The anime, even in the original japanese, is but a abbreviated nod to the literally thousands of pages of beautiful drawings.

I have always loved this film! Nausicaa is such a daring, gentle, and loving heroine. She's a princess and also a fighter. But what I really love in this movie is it's message of the earth, how humans have wasted it and how nature is slowing reviving and purifying our mistakes, having the insects as aid...and how many of us humans are ignorant of it. It's so relevant to today, still, even though this movie was produced back in the 1980's! It's wonderfully animated nonetheless.
