A surprisingly intense kids movie. War, hatred, and natural antagonization is presented, sometimes in cruelly real ways. Quite excellent.
Beautiful, unique, well-crafted film about the value of nature and harmony in the world, paired with neat animation and artistic visuals
Wonderful plot and animation that I found quite moving. Definitely has themes that can be applied to the modern day.
Breath-taking, sometimes horrifying, sometimes heart-warming, an awesome movie that deserves a watch.
Easily Miyazaki's best in my opinion. Just the best.
The first Ghibli movie I watched and definitely a masterpiece. The animation, story and score are all just sweeping and beautiful. 10/10
A cry of hope in the midst of the destruction brought by envy, industry and greed. A wonderful and complex idea, beautifully crafted.
A beautiful but raw film which tells a story more complicated than good vs. evil about unity with nature.
Beautiful animation and a nuanced take on the man vs nature theme. Charming and impactful at the same time. Ghibli dont take kids for fools.
My favorite Miyazaki film, hands down. The art is awe inspiring and majestic, and the themes are incredibly thought provoking
