The Story: In the distant future, after war left most of the earth a toxic wasteland, a few kingdoms struggle to survive. Poisonous plants are spreading relentlessly into the few safe areas, and one kingdom begins conquering the others. Humanity seems destined for extinction, until a gentle princess sets out to bring peace between humanity and nature and also between kingdoms.
Even the message of humans and nature finding harmony, which so many films have handled poorly, is well-presented. Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind goes to the core issue of pursuing balance, giving a beautiful illustration of humanity and nature learning how to work together. It’s a must-see film for all fans of Hayao Miyazaki or animation.
Content Overview: One use of God’s name in vain. Pervasive but mild violence.
