The Wind Rises – Brought to you by Studio Ghibli
Movie Rating ♥♥♥♥♥ (5/5) Movie Trailer Posted below.
The Wind Rises is a wonderful movie. Even though it is a fictional biography of Jiro Horikoshi it kept some of the fundamental facts right. The designs in the movie that Jiro would dream of are based on the life Jiro’s first prototype design of the Mitsubishi A5M. The movie glorified his young years leaving out the parts where he was sick for long periods of time. He was survived by 5 children and the movie led the audience to believe that his wife left him and he did not have children.
It pulled together his young life in a nice fictional way. I liked how there wasn’t one dull moment or a moment that would leave the audience hanging. I expect nothing less than a superb movie from Studio Ghibli and they delivered. It was better than the trailer made me believe it was going to be. Call me a sap but there were parts I cried.
