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.

Unbelievably amazing movie. I first saw this before it was translated while with a dear friend. I next saw the preview screening only to discover Neil Gaiman was sitting behind me (he adapted the English translation). Very cool guy to talk about it briefly.

Watched it again tonight (for maybe the 5th or 6th time). So beautiful. And the music is perfect.

The kiddos loved it. First time for them.

This might be one of the best Anime movies I've seen, despite being over 20 years old at this point! The beautiful hand-drawn animations and moving music create a magical yet imperfect world. An imperfectly human world. This movie holds its ground against the many movies that depict the Humanity vs Nature archetype. You cannot help but be provoked by the fragility of life and the depiction of life and death in the movie perfectly describes how life ebbs and flows. All of this heavy and philosophical reasonings about life are nestled within a story that even a child could understand. No character seems to be truly evil, and the only one that seems truly good is Prince Ashitaka. But even he is struggling with his corruption.

This was a masterful story that kept me in awe and entertained all the while a philosophy of life was weaved throughout. Well done Studio Ghibli.

Reviewing a film two decades after release is a fickle matter, and while the initial impact and cultural context are lost to the new viewer, the themes and messages aren't. Princess Mononoke is a proud and patient venture into the literary familiar.

Literally my favorite movie. I first saw it when I was 10 and have loved it ever since. I love it's environmentalist message and gives me greater pause to consider our effects on the earth we live on. It has, in my opinion, only gotten more relevant in time, especially in light of the recent election here in the US. It makes me work on striving to see with eyes unclouded by hate even when the horrors of the world make it hard to do so. I see something I didn't notice before each time I watch it. It is simply a masterpiece.

Level "Marvellous" • 9 :heart: • Very Recommended.

I found this movie really interesting, but difficult. Maybe it is due to my western education. It is very different from Disney movies. This is an animated film for all family because its subject is greater than a simple story, it talks about life, human relationships and our relationship with nature. Characters are very complex. There are no true villains or so I understood.

If there is a reason this movie is legendary, I must have taken a very wrong turn.

I'm sorry, but the story is just boring. A deer God? Demon boars? Really?
I didn't find anything catching in the story. Maybe kids would like it, but not me. I tend to analyse the story, and if the story doesn't make too much sense or is at least interesting, I dislike the movie.

Studio Ghibli never ever disappoints. The mythology used here to elevate the issue of industrialisation vs nature is insane, and so striking. The attention to detail always blows me away.

Like an acquaintance's b-day party, I enjoyed this one without feeling overly passionate about it.

In fact, I really wish this movie had been 'Princess Mononoke' and not what it was, because it would've been fascinating to watch a movie based on an enigmatic young woman who leaves her people to live with Gods and spirits in nature.

The film should have instead been called "Prince Ashitaka", because he's the true focus of this fantasy anime. The well-written story follows his hero's journey from his lost natal village to the magical forest where he fights both natural and supernatural monsters.

The animation is fantastic, the editing is on point and the arc of the film is satisfying, I just didn't find myself mentally cheering for the good guys to win and praying for the bad guys to lose.

I really enjoyed this movie, like most of Hayao Miyazaki's well known work. It was just way too long.

I remember watching it when I was a kid and it seemed really creepy. Now I'm 26 years old and it still creeps the hell out of me.

A great poetical film. The animation is fantastic!

Epic story and breathtaking visuals.

Another great movie by Miyazaki, solid 8.5 stars. It was really sad to see forest Spirit die because of greed. As many movies of Miyazaki this is a critic of society, we have greed, hate, destroy the environment and mass murder animals so that we can eat their flesh.

As habitual from Ghibli, very well drawed, but the story of pig gods, and wolf gods i simply doesn't like it.
the story is bad

I guess it is good for anime. It did look amazing. I'm thinking anime is just not my thing. Why do so many have to be about demons and spirits? I just can't relate. It was a real struggle for me not to fall asleep in the middle of it. No matter how hard I try, I always seem to find anime a bit too ridiculous.
