Kaze tachinu (2013)

An impressive movie — Written by couvent on 26.09.2022

The wind rises is not what you could expect from a miyazaki movie. More realistic, darker and less dreamy. Yet the blow and the strenght of the movie is really remarkable. The whole life of Jiro Horikochi is told to us and at the same time the tormented pre-war Japan life. You can really feel the whole japan society modernising itself, a movement shown to us with the impressive earthquake at the beggining of the movie. An incredible animated sequence by the way.
A large number of places and characters are shown to us and you can feel that they are tossed around and lost in these troubled times. And Jiro is one of them, trying to achieve his dream of flying and confronting himself to the harsh reality.
