Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind

Hayao Miyazaki


Published December 08, 2005.Nausicaa of the Valley of WindDirected by: Hayao Miyazaki(Buena Vista)Hayao Miyazaki's early epic is almost a blueprint for his later Princess Mononoke, but stands high on its own. There's majesty and conviction in its telling of a young girl's stand as warring kingdoms succumb to environmental destruction. Nausicaa earns the title of mature without using it as a cloak for dullness. It's an essential anime.Mark PalermoCategories: Best of the year (2005)
