This is one of my favorite Mizaki films and one of his most inventive and original. The beauty of the animation is mirrored by the emotion and themes within. This is a film that speaks volumes about the responsibility of human consumption of nature, long before films like Pocahontas and Avatar, and in a much more meaningful manner.

Hayao Miyazaki's first original animated film is a masterpiece. Like his later films, themes of nature and war are prevalent. One of those films every family should watch together.

Miyazaki's revered masterpiece

Following his success with CASTLE OF CAGLIOSTRO, Miyazaki produced this amazing epic about a brave young princess struggling to save her kingdom from opposing forces. It was so popular, in fact, that it put the name Miyazaki on the map. For an older film (1984) it holds up remarkably well; the animation, while slightly lacking the lush polish from Miyazaki's later works, remains fairly impressive to this day and its ecological message rings true (Miyazaki would later on revisit the same ideas in another project of his, PRINCESS MONONOKE). And it's great to have this legendary classic available in a first-rate treatment from Disney; years ago the only way for Americans to experience this movie was through a grossly altered, 85-minute edit called "Warriors of the Wind". This new version, fr...

Excellent Film - Worth Watching for Anyone

Miyazaki's cautionary tale of the dangers humanity faces if they ignore the forces of nature are illustrated in tale and repeated in many of his later works. Nausicaa is an excellent example of how the Japanese animation studios have learned to use music and sound (and the lack of it) to enhance the experience. To those that would dismiss this film simply because it is animated, I will point you to the plethora of hundred million dollar live-action movies that are churched out from Hollywood every year that lack a soul or any type of thoughtful story. Would I rather watch this, whose depth provokes thought? Or would I rather watch the Hulk, whose mindless action and lack of any sensible story is forgotten five minutes out of the theatre. To me itís clear.
