Hayao Miyazaki is considered to be the Walt Disney of anime flicks and given my recent fascination with the genre I knew I had to watch these works of art; this movie I knew well for its obvious environmental message, but once I checked out this picture I knew more of what’s in store here! In the 14th century, the harmony that humans, animals and gods have enjoyed begins to crumble. The protagonist, young Ashitaka – infected by an animal attack, seeks a cure from the deer-like god Shishigami. In his travels, he sees humans ravaging the earth, bringing down the wrath of wolf god Moro and his human companion Princess Mononoke. His attempts to broker peace between her and the humans brings only conflict. An epic fantasy if I ever seen one, plus its lush animation and imaginative creatures are also a sight to behold in this adventure!
