Essence of Japanese myth
»
»
This is not merely a successful fantasy film, but it also gives you the idea of Japanese ancient myths, in which many kinds of deities, especially in Mother Nature, are depicted sometimes as fearful and sometimes comical entities. It's really interesting to see all those unique characters that Miyazaki created and visualized with the essence of such myths. Of course, ignoring all those myths, this film is all the same lovable. I'm sure everybody can enjoy it.
