A thousand years after a global war, a seaside kingdom known as the Valley Of The Wind remains one of only a few areas still populated. Led by the courageous Princess Nausicaa, the people of the Valley are engaged in a constant struggle with powerful insects called ohmu, who guard a poisonous jungle that is spreading across the Earth. Nausicaa and her brave companions, together with the people of the Valley, strive to restore the bond between humanity and the Earth.
Hannah's comments: So far, Miyazaki's most depressing film I have seen. Quite scary with all insects and big creatures, not at all recommended for children under 13 years. The film really gave me bad feelings, thinking of what the human kind does to the nature, this time. Still, good animated, and I like all flyingscenes very much. Seems so free and harmless, watching Nausicaa flying with her a kind of one-crafted aeroplane. Maybe the film is a little to long, if it was 10-15min shorter, it has been good. Good background music.
