Princess Mononoke

Hayao Miyazaki, Japan, 1997o

Ashitaka, a prince of the disappearing Ainu tribe, is cursed by a demonized boar god and must journey to the west to find a cure. Along the way, he encounters San, a young human woman fighting to protect the forest, and Lady Eboshi, who is trying to destroy it. Ashitaka must find a way to bring balance to this conflict.

There is a remarkable scene where San and Ashitaka, who have fallen in love, agree that neither can really lead the life of the other, and so they must grant each other freedom, and only meet occasionally. You won't find many Hollywood love stories (animated or otherwise) so philosophical. Princess Mononoke is a great achievement and a wonderful experience, and one of the best films of the year.

Roger Ebert

Das düstere Öko-Szenario ist nur die vordergründige Botschaft dieser Allegorie, die Egoismus und Rivalität beklagt, Harmonie und Versöhnung einfordert. Das Meisterwerk von Zeichner und Regisseur Hayao Miyazaki ist von einem tiefen Humanismus und freiheitlichen Geist geprägt. Und da er weiss, dass die Wirklichkeit komplexer ist als Theorien und Vorurteile, zieht er keine scharfe Trennlinie zwischen Gut und Böse, Profitmachern und Naturfreunden.
