The Wind Rises
Director: Hayao Miyazaki
Starring: Hideaki Anno,Jun Kunimura,Mirai Shida,Miori Takimoto
This movie is one of Miyazaki's greatest achievements, and a worthy farewell piece for one of the great masters of animated cinema. His most adult and thought-provoking movie to date. It is the most serious movie Miyazaki has ever made.
The Wind Rises plays with light dreamy sequences and the harsher tones of reality. It is packed with so much emotion and internal struggle, it pulls at the heartstrings and doesn't let go for a long time.
The English voice cast includes Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Emily Blunt, who both perform perfectly, but this movie is even better in the original Japanese version.
