Kaze tachinu (Hayao Miyazaki)

The wind rises

Kaze tachinu | Hayao Miyazaki | Junior 9+

An unusual biopic of Jiro Horikoshi, designer of the Zero, the fighter plane that briefly allowed Japan to rule the skies in the Pacific War. An animation film with a paradoxical message: it alienated Japanese nationalists, annoyed by the arguments that condemn Japanese warmongering, as well as Western pacifists, perplexed at the glorification of the man who created a war machine.
