In Miyazaki's thematic sequel to Nausicaš, a young warrior under a demonís curse discovers a forest where animal gods, led by their champion San - the Princess of the title - fight a losing battle with human invaders.
Echoing John Ford westerns as much as Kurosawa with its samurai swordfights and climactic showdown this is a haunting and moving allegory for the attack of technology on nature in modern Japan.
1997 Dir. Hayao Miyazaki 133 min. In Japanese with English subtitles
