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.

" Back in the early 80's, I wasn't the biggest fan of anime. Even those few that reached a high level of acclaim had a hard time of gettiing me to sit through 'em. Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind was one of the first that finally began to open my eyes to the potential that lay within the paints and brushes that colored the cells of these films. An ecological fable that treated it's premise with the maturity that's found in most adult oriented fantasy books and yet with the innocence of the Di"

Dream Dictionary (225 music items)

"Valley Dreams of a valley symbolize stagnant feelings and desires that have not yet been expressed. You may be in a lull and moving through a depression. If you feel that you are moving through the valley of the shadow of death, having a "dark night of the soul," keep in mind that you are protected, guided, and cared for. "

" Warrior/pacifist Princess Nausicaä desperately struggles to prevent two warring nations from destroying themselves and their dying planet. directed by Hayao Miyazaki I thought I had already seen the best Miyazaki but I was wrong. I haven't cried like that watching a movie since a while, Nausicaä is by far the most beautiful character I've ever seen. If I was someone else, I'd be proud to be her."

"Centuries after war has devastated the earth, Princess Nausicaa leads the people of the Valley of the Wind. Feuding clans fight with planes and tanks as well as swords in a world that is both primitive and futuristic. In addition to her people's conflicts with other factions, Nausicaa must also contend with the insects of the jungle including the Ohmu, a race of giant, intelligent bugs that poisons the surrounding atmosphere - and is spreading rapidly."
