It has blown me away.
“Le vent se lève, il faut tenter de vivre.”
”The wind is rising, we must try to live.”
The last time I watched it was eight years ago. (I think) I did not understand it, it was so boring. The day before yesterday i rewatched it and it was a whole new wonderful ghibli experience.
According to Wikipedia Miyazaki didn’t want to make the film as he thought the subjects were inappropriate for children. But one of the staff members suggested that “children should be allowed to be exposed to subjects they are not familiar with” and thus we were rewarded with The Wind Rises.
