    ITEM#: 2500506

    A beautifully realized tale of civilization versus nature, PRINCESS MONONOKE is a true epic by Japan's master animator Hayao Miyazaki. While protecting his village from a rampaging boar-god, the warrior Ashitaka (Billy Crudup) is cursed with a rapidly spreading scar that threatens to end his life. Seeking a cure and a reason for the animal-god's attack, he journeys into the sacred depths of the Great Forest Spirit's realm. On the edge of this once serene forest, however, the Tatara clan have begun to destroy the surrounding land to produce iron. In retaliation, San (Claire Danes), the adopted daughter of the wolf-god Moro (Gillian Anderson), has begun raiding the Tatara fortress to stop their encroachment. Soon Ashitaka is caught in the middle and must stop the war between the humans and the forest dwellers before they destroy each other. Miyazaki, who was personally responsible for 80,000 of the film's 144,000 hand drawings, uses the story's lush feudal setting as a character unto itself, filling the screen with vast mountainous landscapes and gorgeous wooded glens that recall his early film, NAUSICAA OF THE VALLEY OF THE WIND. The film also features battle sequences that are reminiscent of the stunning live action warfare in Akira Kurosawa's RAN. The startlingly fluid movements of these mythological characters are detailed far beyond any other hand-animated production, easily making this one of the most spectacular animated films ever made.

      It was one of those, "I forgot who I loaned it out to" things, and bought this as a replacement. My Japanese Animation Collection would not be the same without this movie. Highly recommend.

      Even though the animation trend is racing towards 3D & realistic rendering, it is nice to see quality 2D movies. Mind blowing images on the screen is never a good substitute for a good story line with me. This one has a little of both. The illustrations and backgrounds are terrific and detailed with nice movement and texture. I like some of the creative whimsical creatures and how the artist handles crowd scenes without it looking too cluttered. There are some scenes where heads and limbs get cut off and some scary creatures so I cannot recommend this for smaller children. The story is a fun ride and ends in the usual strange Japanese anime way that makes some people scratch their heads and say, "Huh?" I'm no "tree-hugger" but I appreciate the nice message of being aware of and respecting the environment and world around us. The extras are pretty good with interviews of the voice actors. I wish there was a commentary with the artist and more photo gallery stuff. Overall though, I was quite pleased with this DVD.

      The story was very compelling and there was a good mix of action and also a magical and spiritual quality that many films today do not have. I was very impressed by this movie and I would recommend it for all ages.
