Anime Review: Nausicaa: the Valley of the Wind

Miziyaka film

This is a film set in a world that is not our own. Nausicaa is a brave young woman who has a special connection to the world around her. The valley is set upon by raiders and then by the giant creatures who now own the world. How she finds a balance that allows the great creatures and mankind coexist is the whole of this story.

The strikingly beautiful images almost steal the entire movie but the story is a classic one that will keep you riveted. I enjoyed this movie thoroughly but it is too much for the younger viewers. Even the younger teens might find the story a bit too complex for them. Recommended for the adults and kids who can watch a movie that isn’t fast paced.
