Nausicaä is the princess of a rural valley that lives at peace on the edge of a deadly fungal wasteland, until a ship carrying a weapon from a bygone industrial age crashes nearby. When warriors from a far country come to retrieve the artifact, their invasion draws Nausicaä and her people into a sprawling political conflict. Set 1,000 years after a global war that nearly destroyed all life on Earth.

Miyasaki wrote such a realistically strong and intelligent female character. The plot (focusing on how to balance relying and living with nature to ensure it continues for future generations) and animation are smooth and I will never tire of this film. Honestly, I think this is a film worth watching in middle schools as well as high schools.

Three kingdoms, a bunch of giant killer bugs, a deathly jungle - these are the setting for a tale of environmental degradation and the redeeming power of love. The mythic structure is fascinating to watch even though the facts are asserted a bit awkwardly in the development of the plot.

Not for me. I would think this animation was meant for 5 years and younger but the subject matter is that of war. So it is almost a conflict in itself between the targeted audience and the subject matter.

This movie is about WAR - the heroine is a cute anime princess but that doesn't stop it from being an over-the-top 2 hour bloodbath

This film is one of Studio Ghibli's earlier works, and remains one of my all-time favourite from this studio. Animation is top-notch, and the depiction of flight scenes very well done. I will watch it again down the road for sure.

Really interesting movie. A world well woven, the creatures are interesting, the landscapes are vivid, and the plot is complete. Recommend as a gentle foray into science fiction, for kids and adults alike.

Not as good as Castle in the Sky, but still good. A real thought provoker. Not recommended for young children, though.

A thousand years have passed since the collapse of industrialized civilization. A toxic jungle now spreads, threatening the survival of the last of the human race.
