The Wind Rises
I went and saw the film today with my friend. It was very different from any other Miyazaki film but it was also very him. Of course there is the fantastical dreams and warning about the perils of war but it felt very fresh and crisp. A very different taste.
I enjoyed it. It’s embarrassing to admit but I actually cried quite a lot in this film.
Usually when I cry in films I try to act all stoic and have a few tears fall.
But today my nose was running like a tap. I actually wanted to weep at the end but held my self together because otherwise I would have looked like a loony in a moderately full cinema.
