Hayao Miyazaki Japan, 1997

Jye Sherwell's rating of the film Princess Mononoke

The animation is beautiful, the music especially wonderful and the story is fantastic. I love the friendship they showed between Ashitaka and his Elk. I found it truly touching. You couldn't ask for a better hero than Ashitaka. He's brave and compassionate. This film is also quite epic. They don't hold back the violence but that's a good thing. Another great one from Miyazaki.
