In my review for Kiki’s Delivery Service I said that I was close to saying I prefer Ghibli to Pixar, well now I can safely say that I love Studio Ghibli more than Pixar.
Princess Mononoke is essentially a war film but told from the perspective of someone who aims for peace. There is no good side or bad side, the villain of the film is the war. There are good and bad characters on each side as with every war.
I absolutely loved this film. The animation is stunning, the characters are all memorable and likeable. As with all Miyazaki films the score is perfect. I can’t praise this film enough.
This is my favourite Studio Ghibli film so far and one of my all time favourite animated films.
