Hayao Miyazaki’s Princess Mononoke is a landmark of animation and a film of unsurpassed power and beauty. An epic, eco-themed story of conflict between humans, gods, and nature, the film depicts a mystical battle between Animal Gods of the forest and humans during Japan’s Muromachi Period.
“Beautifully constructed and painstakingly written, this is about as close to a perfect animated epic as you’re likely to get.” – Melanie McFarland, Seattle Times
While defending his village from a demonic boar-god, the young warrior Ashitaka becomes afflicted with a curse that grants him super-human power in battle but will eventually take his life. Traveling west to find a cure or meet his destiny, he journeys deep into sacred depths of the Great Forest where he meets San (Princess Mononoke), a girl raised by wolf-gods who is waging battle against the human outpost of Iron Town, on the edge of the forest. Mononoke is a force of nature – with blood smeared lips, riding bareback on a great white wolf, doing battle with both gods and humans, she is as iconic a figure as any from film, literature, or opera. (Dir. by Hayao Miyazaki, 1997, Japan, 134 mins, Rated PG-13) Please note: This film includes violent battle scenes and frightening fantasy creatures.
