THE WIND RISES (2013 New York Film Festival, New York, New York USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Stars ìììì

The Wind Rises becomes one of the best of Hayao Miyazaki’s animated creative endeavors. It tells the story of a young Japanese engineer who wishes to build airplanes, his disappointments as some of his models fail testing, and his concern that his successful models are used in warfare. It is an interestingly written script that explores personal relationships, otherworldly experiences, and the connectedness of everything.
