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

Hayao Miyazaki's environmentalist streak is apparent again in this post-apocaplyptic action adventure. The young Princess Nausicaä searches for the cause of her land's suffering and teaches us a thing or two about saving our planet along the way.

A good movie

I already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I was quite eager to check it out again. Well, even though this movie has quite an impressive reputation, to be honest, I always had a hard time to connect with the damned thing. I mean, as usual with Studio Ghibli, the animation was really neat and this story dealing with a post-apocalyptic world had a nice dark edg... read more
View all Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind reviews
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. Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind is no exception. 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, Nau ... (more)

"A Pesar de que sus temas NO son muy elaborados, ni complejos y su final deja mucho que desear, nausicaa sigue siendo una película con muy poderosos mensajes y muy inspiradora."

" Date: 1/5/2021 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-Watch Note: If I had to pick a favorite Hayao Miyazaki movie, it would be Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind with Lupin III: Castle of Cagliostro (1979) coming in second place. Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind is a wonderful movie with fantastic animation and a great story in my opinion. I love the world that Hayao Miyazaki created for this movie because you have a cool mythology that exists in this movie's universe. You get plenty of awesome looking cre"
