Wow! I've finally got to see the uncut version of Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind, the very first masterpiece by the great Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli! Sore wa Sugoi Desu Yo! (Japanese: It's so awesome and amazing!)
Everything is so awesome; the soundtrack, the voicework, the story, the action scenes, the art work, and every thing else is so perfect, and well done too. Everything has been refined to the state-of-the-art level, which is what Studio Ghibli has been famous for. What's more, the message for peace, perseverance and prosperity, along with harmony and enviornmental protection and balance, have really touched deeply in my heart right from the start.
Overall, I'd like to say "Doomo Arigato Gozaimasu" to the great Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli for their great masterpiece, and shall give them 5 out of 5 stars for outstanding performance!

I had this movie in DVD format... with no french language on it and I decided to upgrade it to BLu-Ray, especially because the studio decided to put the French language track on the blu-ray. Well I was not disspointed! The movie is magnificient and it's a must own for all the Miyasaki-Ghibli fans!

I would recommend this film to any Miyazaki fan. If you've seen Princess Mononoke and liked it, this one is the same sort of story. It's a lot older, so the animation isn't as clean, but it's a good watch none the less.
The first time I watched this, it was subtitled in English. The dubbing of this movie is well done, like all the others brought over by Disney. Patrick Stewart is one of the English voice actors, so it's a real treat.
Of course, if you're not sure about it, rent it. It shouldn't be that difficult to find.

Miyazaki is part of the top four greatest animators of all time (Walt Disney, Frédéric Back and Norman McLaren being the three others). This movie, his second full-length feature (Castle of Cagliostro being is first), is proof of how immense his talent is.

The storyline is great, the voice acting is marvelous (especially in French and Japanese — you have to hear Nausicaa's scream when her wounded feet enters a lake full of acid, it's the best pain scream I heard in cinema to this day) and the animation is magnificent. Keep in mind it was made in 1983-84, before the advent of computer-assisted animation, so it isn't as smooth as more recent productions, but it's still amazing to behold.

The music is a mix of classical score and synth music, which was quite popular back in the 80's, and is perfectly suited to the movie.

Most important, Nausicaa's character, the driving force behind this movie, is just amazing. Her courage, intelligence, kindness will touch you (unless you're cynical and feel nothing for nobody but yourself), as will her quest to save the world.

A must-have for animation fans.

Quelle souvenir d'enfance j'ai regardé ce film dans les année 80.
J'ai acheté ce film deux fois car la première fois n'avait pas de version francaise.

Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind is a true classic of animation. It had the same importance to Studio Ghibli that Snow White had to Disney. Both of them were the templates on which the future of their companies would be built. Which is actually quite fitting since Hayao Miyazaki, the co-founder of Studio Ghibli is considered to be the Walt Disney of Japan.

Here in this movie made back in 1984 are all the hallmarks of Studio Ghibli that would be incorporated into all their future productions. Everything from the fluid animation of the plucky heroine, the gentle understated story telling through to the music and the high quality animation; time after time I noticed something that would later appear slightly expanded in their newer productions. But this is where they first pulled it all together. Nausicaa is an absolute must for all lovers of Hayao Miyazaki or of japanese animation!

As for the movie itself, this one is a little more darker and more serious than his lighter works like Totoro or Kiki's Delivery Service. Set in a post-apocalyptic world in which mankind is on the verge of extinction; it's tone is closer to his seminal masterwork, Princess Mononoke. (Considered one of the greatest animated films of all time!) However, unlike Mononoke, I think any kid who can handle The Terminator or Transformers shouldn't have any problem with Nausicaa. Probably even younger if mommy's there to hold them. It does make a great family film.

As for the bluray itself; this is definitely the way to go. A film of this importance deserves to be seen at it's very best and Disney delivers bringing out everything that was in the original and that's an amazing amount for an animated film.

Format: DVD
It was very hard to choose my top Miyazaki film, but I choose Nausicaä of the Valley of the Winds. At first, I had never seen the film, until I had bought the Disney 2-Disc DVD of the film. I thought the dub-casting was excellent, with Alison Lohman as Nausicaa; Shia LaBeouf as Asbel; Patrick Stewart as Lord Yupa, and Uma Thurman as Kushana.

The film is based on a manga made by Miyazaki himself. Set in the year 2984, a thousand years in the future, when global war had incinerate the Earth. The Earth has become an unrecognizable place. Large parts of the world have been swallowed up by forests of poisonous fungi. The remaining humans live near the fungus and it's monstrous insectoid inhabitants, trying to prevent it's spread. One of the human kingdoms, the peaceful Valley of Wind, loves its gentle Princess Nausicaä and her father the king, but their peace is about to be broken, as they are swallowed up in the machinations of their larger, warmongering neighbours. However, Nausicaä has hidden potential, and may yet change the fate of the world.

It's truly Miyazaki's epic masterpiece, and also a good film to show us the seriousness of global war and our environment.
