Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind is a landmark anime film directed by Hayao Miyazaki. The film is based off of a manga by the same name that was made by Miyazaki.    The film takes place one thousand years after the "Seven Days of Fire." This catastrophe destroyed human civilization and most of Earth's original ecosystem.

Pros: Very unique; love many of the concepts; chocobos!     Cons: Some typical Miyazaki stylings; may not be for everyone     The Bottom Line: While a little like Princess Mononoke and with bad guys who never get the comeuppance you wish they would, it's your usual Miyazaki style, but with a pretty cool storyline.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot.

About this movie


Hayao Miyazaki's epic, environmentally conscious anime, takes viewers on a voyage through time and space to the magical and dreamlike Valley of the Wind, where good battles evil for the future of the human race. Faced with almost certain destruction of her planet's natural resources, the warrior Princess Nausicaa must rally her people against an evil queen's brutal army to bring a new life to her homeland. Reminiscent of works by J.R.R. Tolkien, this story of responsibility, coming of age, peace, and redemption has proven to be one of the legendary Miyazaki's most enduring works. As opposed to the earlier release of this film, titled WARRIORS OF THE WIND, this release stays true to Miyazaki's original work.
