This is one of my favorite movies. Its set in the middle ages of Japan where gods and demons still walk among us. The prince Ashitaka must go on a long and difficult journey to get rid of curse that slowly eats him alive. He makes new friends and enemies while he is sucked in a war between humans and boars 5 meters (16 feet) high. This movie should have gotten an Oscar for animation or at least been nominated. Its sad to know that outside Japan this movie did not receive the credit it deserved.
