The Wind Rises is the 11th animated theatrical film directed by Hayao Miyazaki at Studio Ghibli. Based on Miyazaki’s own manga and the 1937 short novel of the same name by Tatsuo Hori, this is the story of Jirō Horikoshi, the aircraft engineer most remembered for his design work on the Mitsubishi A6M Reisen “Zero”, Japan’s famous World War II fighter aircraft. During the WWII years, the Miyazaki family business manufactured aircraft parts, including the windshields and rudders used on the Zero.

Beautiful, heart-warming and tragic events entwined in this amazing movie - a true Miyazaki, nothing less.

I absolutely wanted to love this film, but even with tons of things to like, I don't feel the heart, blood and sweat that usually seem to go into Ghibli movies. It felt by-the-books, pleasure-less, unexciting. I was bored.

¿Quién ha visto el viento? Ni tú ni yo lo hemos visto, pero el viento sopla y hace que tiemblen las hojas.
Que el viento haga vibrar estas alas para llegar a ti.
