Nausicaa of the Valley Of the Wind (1984)

Running Time: 115 mins

Rated:  PG


Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, This film is one I’ll never forget and will always be on my tongue when I talk about Classic Anime Films. Nausicaa is the film that made Studio Ghibli such a powerhouse despite the movie coming out before Studio Ghibli was formed they have it listed as one of their productions. Hayao Miyazaki (Director and Writer) really did the World well when he made the film and I’m yet to hear someone state that this film is OVERHYPED and UNDERSERVING of its Credit. The Artwork is a Ground Basis for Studio Ghibli and with that being said the consistence is there (always will be!) and won’t be going away for decades to come. The music is very peaceful and really slowed paced for a Post-Apocalyptic film which was refreshing because i’m a bit tired of feeling depressed watching these things! The OST doesn’t make me feel any despair at all but only Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind HOPE whilst I was watching it. Nausicaa is the lead protagonist of the film(One of the Best out There), her character is the first female character I’ve seen that really strides for peaceful resolutions and one could hold her own in an actual fight, and THAT is what makes her stand out when you compare her to the other FEMALE characters. The Story is Original and very fulfilling to ANY/EVERYONE’s taste but this leads to my sole disappointment of the film is that it had to end (All good things come to an end)oh and the film was quite fluid :P. The movie is a one you could watch with your family so you don’t have to worry about not finding a good anime for the kiddies to watch :P. Overall I LOVE this film and will probably be re-watching AGAIN sometime in the near future.
