Superb Introduction to Ghibli if You've Only Seen Spirited Away!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind [DVD] (DVD)
I had only seen Spirited Away and had loved every minute of it. So I decided to slowly work my way through the collection starting with the very first Studio Ghibli film.
The animemation is superb and excellently styled in a way that so many have tried to copy. The voice dubs too fit extremely well. The dubbing can often make/break a movie but here it fits perfectly.
The story itself is very environmentally focused but coming up soon for 30 years on, its issues are more important now than ever. While you can quite easily get lost in the plot and moral standings and questions that the film asks, I'd still recommend this film to younger children who may not be thinking on that level and would just like a feature length fun animation instead.
A great film, great introduction to Studio Ghibli - now whats the next one on the list!
