Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1984)
Genre: Animation, Adventure, Fantasy
I’m a big fan of Studio Ghibli and couldn’t wait to see another film from their collection 🙂 . First off, I have to mention that I watched the English version (English Voices) not the traditional Japanese version of this film and you can hear Patrick Stewart’s voice straight away 😛 . The narrative was different and asked for your attention with its challenging story. It was science fiction meets medieval world with a range of characters who challenge the world they face (toxic, dying world). I kept an open mind and found it was average. The main character was understandable, likable and her story was interesting (I liked her personal struggle within the film) 🙂 . The artwork was very nice, the insects were impressive (for the world) and the film kept me entertained. This is not one of my favourites from Studio Ghibli but is decent enough if you like their work or are a fan of anime in general 🙂 Enjoy 🙂 !
I give this film 3 Stars out of 5!
