Bugs? Female Protagonist? Tears of Joy?
Verified purchase
Yes! To all of the above! Great movie. I remembered renting this movie in a Blockbuster over and over again because I liked the idea of a girl conquering bugs. Now as a grown up with the ability to relocate a spider when it moves into my apartment, I credit this movie with giving me the courage to stand up for my own space while respecting nature's tendency to reclaim that which has been stolen. A cup is my glider. A piece of paper under that cup is my bug charmer. My roommate is my fox squirrel. And I am Nausicaa of the Apartment of the City.

One of the favorite movies ever!
Verified purchase
Moving to a small town, I realized I must have lent my DVD to someone back home. I couldn't just go and grab Blu-ray/DVD from the store cause "small town", so I was super relived that I could get this through amazon when I really needed a fave to fall back on during quarantine. I know HBO is supposed to get all the Studio Ghibli stuff soon, but after Game of Thrones the last thing I want to do is fork money over to them.

My favorite movie of all time.
Verified purchase
This movie impacted my childhood imagination in a very dramatic way, and I'm sure I'm not the only Gen-Xer that can say that. The desolate dystopia, the unlikely hero, her fierceness and independence and when she takes to the sky, yep, this movie is my favorite of all time.

Great Remastered from the 1984 Warriors of the Wind!!
Verified purchase
As someone that has watched the original 1984 Warriors of the Wind version seeing this remastered is wonderful. Of course there were some changes made into the story from my vhs copy that I have, however it only adds to the overall storyline to begin with. Watching this I also got to see never before seen scenes that were not in the 1984 version. This movie was my very first Hayao Miyazaki film that I have scene as a child and loved it, because of this film I have also seen the other films by Hayao Miyazaki, and I love all of them!

This is one of my favorite movies of all time. I watched it when I was very young and it got me interested in Anime way back then. I purchased it to share that experience with my daughter and she also loved it! I highly recommend this if you love hand-drawn movies with a good story.
