Audience Reviews for Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (Kaze no tani no Naushika)

  • Oct 23, 2019
    A work whose imaginative scope is with few peers, while metaphorically reminiscent of self-defense disciplines that require poetic movements to deliver maximum punch. While it's not as engaging as other entries by Miyazaki, that still leaves him galaxies beyond the usual like offerings, which are usually pretty slim. Dreamy and romantic like a rainy day spent inside.

    There's an argument to made that it's a tad overrated, yes it boasts the gorgeous visuals and unique world building that's a hallmark of Miyazaki's best work, but the themes get a little too heavy handed. Anyway I'm probably just nitpicking, the finale does have some great moments and it's positive ending seems earned.

    Visually striking and with a sweeping, epic narrative, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind represents director Hayao Miyazaki at his least restrained.
    Isaac H Super Reviewer

    A grim and powerful epic that boasts an inventive, visually rich universe and an ecological message that only gets more and more relevant in our times - and it's wonderful to see a brave princess who fights to save her world with the fearlessness of a warrior.
