Oh man... How do I start...
This movie, the whole 2 1/2 hours... was beautiful.
It's like Hayao Miyazaki put all of his movies into one. You get a taste of each aspect that every single one of his films has included in this movie. The general theme of the movie is light, like wind. In addition, Joe Hisaishi's music has yet again gorgeously illustrated the mood of the film.
One thing I really love about this movie, or any movie by Miyazaki, is that he is able to show that everyone has the ability to love. You'll find that even the asshole characters have a soft side.
of Ghibli's films, this one is one of the most realistic ones. It's not quite fantasy themed (even though the main character does daydream), it's a film that is based on an real person. Thus saying, the movie is relatable in many perspectives.
By the time the credits rolled in, I was crying. REALLY REALLY HARD
. I mean, yes the story was sad and that was a part of what made me cry, but the biggest part was that this film that I had just watched, would be the last of Miyazaki's movies. The last time that I'll ever get to experience a fresh, new story from a masterful creator such as himself. This movie just summed up life. So, so beautifully.
Also, one of the lines in the movie really stood out. I think Miyazaki purposely put them in there, and I caught it. If you don't want to read them because you want to catch them for yourself, then don't! But I'll write them here in small textAn artist is only creative for ten years. Try to live the last years to the fullest
I WAS LIKE OMG I GOTCHA HAYAO I'M GONNA CRY
Anyways, this movie is definitely worth seeing. Go buy tickets NOW!
