Princess Mononoke

Princess Mononoke as we know it, is one of the more common anime films of today. To this date it’s one of the top grossing films of the world at the box office! For this film Miyazaki definitely achieved a new level of appreciation and admiration.

“Ashitaka… can you save the girl you love?” This story depicts a young man who goes out to find the Great Forest Spirit in hope to find a cure for the curse that he has been under. Before he knows it, he gets involve with both sides of a battle. One side is fighting for their home in the forest, as the other is fighting to destroy it. While he is in a city called Irontown he learns much about someone known as Princess Mononoke, who is supposedly a Wolf Girl who knows a great deal on the Forest Spirit. He soon meets this girl for himself and realizes how important it is to see with eyes unclouded by hate.

Princess Mononoke brings a story like no other. There aren’t many films out there that have really changed my look on the world and everything on it. Nor has there been one that really made me feel something special and indescribable for every single character, yet Princess Mononoke combines them both.

Joe Hisaishi, the composer for this film, is wonderful. The music goes basically perfect with every scene. At times it seemed that the desired intensity and mood for the scene was only achieved by the music. It was all definitely breathtaking. It’s something I haven’t heard before, that’s so unbelievably stunning that it’s a reason itself to see this film. In the English audio though, some of the songs were translated, but it was still surprisingly good quality. Some of the voice actors for this film were Claire Danes, Billy Crudup, Minnie Driver, Billy Bob Thornton, and Gillian Anderson. Although (of course) the Japanese audio is still preferable, I didn’t really mind watching it with either of them.

Though, my favourite thing in this movie was definitely the animation, it’s something completely new and that reaches new heights for the animation world. It gives the appearance as though every frame was done with the utmost care. So much emotion and thought was put into making this and it definitely showed. This film is one of the most beautiful films that I have ever seen.

Miyazaki is always thinking outside the box. How he gets these ideas it’s hard to tell. Unlike most of his films, which were targeted for children, Princess Mononoke I thought to be a bit more graphic and definitely more violent. You see a lot of blood and people’s heads and arms getting chopped off, but that’s about it. (woot!)

So, as a final word, I definitely recommend Princess Mononoke to anyone who enjoys a great film!!! ^_^
