Nausicaä Of The Valley Of The Wind Review

Image for Nausicaä Of The Valley Of The Wind

Princess Nausicaä (Sumi Shimamoto) fights to stop two warring nations from annihilating each other and their dying planet.


For a film made in 1984, Nausicaä has aged remarkably well, proving to be ahead of its time with its urgent eco-warning. It is the release that anime powerhouse Studio Ghibli was built on and, with its stirring tale of a princess brokering peace between giant insects and warring tribes of humans, a dreamlike thing of beauty.

Dreamlike Ghibli animation that's well worth seeking out.
