A captivating post appocalyptic story from around the Mad Max era. It does seem a little long, and younger kids might get restless watching, but with the utterly stunning, bedazzling visuals and sensitive character interaction it makes for a beautiful and moving animated experience like you would only expect with master Miyazaki. If that is a bit gushy fanboy sounding well ok, I can live with that... read more

This is an amazing film. All of Miyazaki's trademarks can be found in this film. His obsession with flying, humanity fighting each other but eventually blossoming throughout times of war and uncertainty, a strong female protagonist, beautiful locations and enchanting forests, it's all there to see. I always think his films like this might be too much for children to watch, but it certainly makes t... read more

Yeah well the phrase ‘being eaten alive by insects’ takes on a whole new meaning here. Made in 1984 this film is set 1 000 years into the future after our planet has been poisoned and made toxic by humans. The very spunky Princess Nausicaä leads the battle front on about three angles at any one time, so things can get intertwined and complicated, but don’t be put off. I love the way enemie... read more

Description: 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.

"Maybe Criterion could give us proper releases of miyazaki's filmography with accurate subtitles, not dubtitles like Disney did with Mononoke Hime!"

"Typical of Studio Ghibli works, Nausicaä doesn't fail to impress in terms of animation and visual exposition. Its story and characters, however, are very one-dimensional and messily composed, making this one of the more uninteresting of Miyazaki's otherwise impeccable filmography. "

"10.08. Blu-ray, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Hayao Miyazaki A visually enchanting film with a magnificent future depiction and the world it creates is quite fascinating with its giant insects, massive air-craft and stuff. However, I thought the environmental message was handled better later in Princess Mononoke which had more likeable/multi-dimensional characters as well. Also, I tend not to like Miyazaki's action sequences all that much. Here, they somehow lack tension and the feeling of danger, "
