Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (風の谷のナウシカ)
Watched Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind with Olly and my VIPs this evening >> its a classic anime film from the mighty Hayao Miyazaki >> it is visually awesome with a pretty complicated story and great characterisation. Its hard to explain but a joy to watch.
We watched the 2005 reissue with voice talent from the likes of Patrick Stewart, Uma Thurman, Edward James Olmos, Shia LaBeouf and everyone's favourite Jedi Knight Mark Hamill.
Key themes include environmentalism and living peacefully in a violent world >> impressive content for a family film >> one that makes you think without preaching to you.
Check it out. There is more to film than Hollywood!
