Day 13 - A powerful message
Nausicaa of The Valley Of The Wind
Miyazaki is never subtle in his message that people need to learn to work in harmony with the earth and its creatures. In this movie, the world has been destroyed and poisoned by war. The people cling to existence, hoping that the prophecy that was foretold to them would one day happen. Nausicaa loves the creatures, seeing beautiful where others only see angry and hatred, a powerful message about bigotry. She speaks of peace with the other valleys, but the warmongers want none of it and when they threaten her valley, Nausicaa's abilities are pushed to the limit.
It features the voices of: Patrick Stewart, Uma Thurman, Mark Hamill,Edward James Olmos and Chris Sarandon, to name but a few.
