|Title (English)||Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind|
|Title (Japanese)||Kaze no Tani no Nausicaa||Advertising|
|Notes||Movie (2 hrs).
"Warriors of the Wind" is the 90 min. English version.
|Review||Literally, "Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind". Considered by some to be Miyazaki's best, and one of the finest animated movies ever. Princess Nausicaa lives in a world of the future, devastated by war and pollution, and slowly regenerating itself into a rather alien place, infested with giant insects. Meanwhile the surviving humans continue attempts to destroy each other. Nausicaa has to help her people when they are invaded, and overcome hatred and violence, not least within herself. The sound-track music is very fine too.
The English dubbed version, "Warriors of the Wind" while cheap and easier to obtain, has lost half an hour of the more subtle and ecological material and isn't in widescreen. You owe it to yourself to view the original.
