Description & Features+

This impressive work from acclaimed Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki represents a significant departure from traditional anime. Foregoing the gritty storylines, extreme violence, and adult content found throughout many anime, Miyazaki's works borrow as much from fairy tales as they do from science fiction. Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind is no exception. Centuries after war has devastated the earth, Princess Nausicaa leads the people of the Valley of the Wind. Feuding clans fight with planes and tanks as well as swords in a world that is both primitive and futuristic. In addition to her people's conflicts with other factions, Nausicaa must also contend with the insects of the jungle including the Ohmu, a race of giant, intelligent bugs that poisons the surrounding atmosphere - and is spreading rapidly. The setting of this 1984 animation owes much to the post-apocalypse genre spawned by Mad Max and other films, and the political subplot is often compared to Frank Herbert's Dune. However, the heroine here has more in common with the female protagonists of the Disney musicals such as Pocohantas and Mulan; Nausicaa is more concerned with harmony and communication than with conquest and revenge. Sympathetic to the Ohmu, she learns she must approach them with understanding to achieve peace and restore the dying world. This film is beautifully animated and written, and the moral to this ecological fable is difficult to miss. The film was dubbed into English in the mid-2000s, hence the presence of such actors as Shia LeBoeuf, who wasn't born yet when the film was originally made. ~ Jonathan E. Laxamana, Rovi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enjoyable for any and all ages I first watched this movie I believe when I was around 6-7 yrs old back in 1987. I had never forgotten it nor the experience after watching it. This movie left a lasting impression on me. It has taken me 23 yrs to figure out what the name was so that I could find and purchase it. Now I will pass down this amazing story to my 3 boys so that they too can not only enjoy it as a movie, but hopefully they will walk away with something more valuable as I had when I was their age.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Original Miyazaki Classic Nausicaa is Miyazaki's masterpiece work that will entertain any anime fan. Nausicaa is an epic tale about a princess who tries to balance her decaying world with warring human kingdoms. The film has major environmental conservation themes but its not too heady or preachy for viewers of any age. There is some violence in the film and it may not be suitable for children under 8 years old. Nausicaa starts a magnificent collection by Studio Ghibli and I would suggest to anyone to get all of Miyazaki's work.
