    Do not go into this movie, expecting Kiki or Castle in the Sky, because it's not. It truly is something different by Miyazaki, and in a way it pays an homage to Takahata's Grave of the Fireflies. However, it provides the same inner warm feeling you expect when watching the incredible animation of Studio Ghibli.

    Kaze is sentimental drama, and during the entire 2 hour long run, you will truly understand Jiro Horikoshi. This movie is insightful and will leave you staring at the Japanese film credits long after the movie finishes. It's packed with a familiar and breathtaking score from Joe Hisaishi and still manages to provide the magical Ghibli moments that people have become familiar with.

    This is the only film I've ever written anything about, and probably will be the only film I ever write a review about. This is Miyazaki at his finest; perhaps not the imaginative super spiral that Spirited Away was, but definitely a sentimental and powerful film that has a great deal of messages; I think this was the movie that we were waiting for from him.

    The announcement of this film was a pleasant surprise after Ponyo and From Up on Poppy Hill, which both had simple, childish plots. Few films in Japan have tackled the lives of imperial period heroes; the ghosts of the 1960s urge people to denounce what really happened in that time and memorialize an imaginary anti-war movement, for example in this year's film "Shounen H". For Miyazaki to choose a subject like this showed that he was really going for a huge challenge. Miyazaki is of course anti-war and environmentalist. But Ghibli films are never negative. What sort of positive image of the Zero bomber inventor would Miyazaki produce?

    The result is astounding. As everyone has noted, this is not a children's movie. It's complex, so it doesn't have the epic sense of Miyazaki at his best, but history and adulthood are just as complex, and Miyazaki does justice to both. The film indeed stays positive throughout, by showing from start to finish how everyone wishes they themselves would behave, rewarding the viewer with virtue and beauty, but without being condescending about the hardships of real life. In a sense, the film is about the "importance of dreams", but it's also about what it means to be a dreamer in real life, and how our highest fantasies can be turned into beauty if we put our minds to it. The cartoon medium is put to full, extravagant use in dream sequences that merge right into the narrative. Certain elements at the end of the film leave the obvious unsaid in a peculiarly Japanese and fulfilling way. The most classic films of Japan, like the great works of Akira Kurosawa and Yasujiro Ozu, say something profound about the meaning of life, and Kaze Tachinu deserves a place among those ranks.

    First of all, let me start by telling "Woah, What a great movie".

    Hayao Miyazaki's latest movie The Wind Rises is one of his best movies till date though the story line and plot is completely different from all his other movies which had a magical and fantasy feeling to it. It's nowhere near Spirited Away his best work till date but it ranks 3rd in my ghibli list after Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke.

    The story, partly non-fiction, evolves around a young mechanical designer whose dream was to build beautiful airplanes. He ultimately succeeds in building fully up-to-date planes, but which went to war, and none came back.

    His personal life is set in Japan when people were facing great uncertainty after the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, the Great Depression, and preparation for the war with China, then America, and Britain, and Netherlands, and the Soviets … He and his colleagues do what they do best and what they are supposed to do under those circumstances: make planes. Just do it.

    His life enters into a new stage when he meets again accidentally with the girl whose life he saved during the earthquake. Their beautiful romance and eventual marriage is however overshadowed by her disease (tuberculosis, which was incurable at that time), and war.

    The ending completely pays off and blew me away in every term. The Movie is what we wanted from Miyazaki though intended for Mature Audiences only, I suggest everyone to watch this movie and I am sure that you will receive 1 ounce more pleasure than I did.

    10/10 For this Masterpiece.

    This is a beautiful fictionalized story about Jiro Horikoshi who was a designer of Japanese planes that were used in world war II. That's the challenge. This could have easily been a movie about the person who invented machine guns or chemical weapons. I am sure somewhere in those people's lives is a beautiful and touching story. Yes the Japanese went through a tough time in WWII but then so did the people and countries they went to war with. I believe this film would be more acceptable had it not been a biopic so it doesn't have that baggage of reality.

    In an interview with Japanese actor Ken Watanabe on another war movie "Letters from Iwo Jima" points out "…Unfortunately, most Japanese people aren't aware of this tragedy; even I didn't know until I did the film. It's difficult to say why, but perhaps it has something to do with the lack of a good education. This film deals with only one of many tragedies in the history of the world, but hopefully it will get people to think more about these forgotten incidents." In watching this film, you need to take into account the context that Miyazake is trying to operate in. He wanted to remind people of the past but he clearly takes pride in his culture and history but has to side step the accountability of this main character to a certain degree. This is very hard to do. But whether this is intentional the main character's tragic loss in the end seems to suggest that karma like accountability.
