The movie sounds beautiful and the review is great Adam-san :) Its certainly does feel nostalgic, and this being Miyazaki's last movie makes it even more special :)

lovely review! I'm a bit sad that this is the last of Miyazaki's movies but I do get it and I agree with you that he poured a lot of himself in this one.

Wonderful review, Bossman. It somehow made me excited to try and watch this movie when I have the chance. Judging from your words, it seems that this is a movie that could really give us some deep reflection and thought. And it's also interesting that you noted the film's message of piece at a time when PM Shinzo Abe wants to amend Japan's pacifist constitution
I might show this to my class whenever the opportunity arises. Thanks for the review, Bossman!

This is a nice review. Given that, I think I'll look into this movie; I'm not usually one for somewhat depressing films (glad to hear it's satisfying overall, though), but it's Miyazaki's last, and it's got that beautiful Ghibli animation, so why not?

Good to see a new movie review from the Bossman. I can safely say Miyazaki leaves Ghibli in good hands, on good terms, and with a fantastic movie as his final mark. In truth, The Wind Rises may not hold the cultural impact that something like Princess Mononoke or Spirited Away hold, but that will come down to the fact if it is honored more through award season. Make no mistake and underrate, as it will be there. Buzz enough will carry it, and the content should bolster it. Thank you Miyazaki-san for your great effort after all these years. We will always have the memories and the movies.
