Jiro dreams of flying and designing beautiful airplanes, inspired by the famous Italian aeronautical designer Caproni. Nearsighted from a young age and thus unable to become a pilot, Jiro joins the aircraft division of a major Japanese engineering company in 1927. His genius is soon recognized, and he grows to become one of the world’s most accomplished airplane designers.
THE WIND RISES chronicles much of his life, and depicts key historical events that affected deeply the course of Jiro’s life, including The Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, The Great Depression, the tuberculosis epidemic, and Japan’s plunge into war. He meets and falls in love with Nahoko, grows and cherishes his friendship with his colleague Honjo, and innovates tremendously, leading the aviation world into the future.
Hayao Miyazaki brings together the engineer Jiro Horikoshi and the author Tatsuo Hori, who lived during the time of the story of THE WIND RISES, to create Jiro, a fictional character at the center of an epic tale of love, perseverance, and the challenges of living and making choices in a turbulent world.Now Showing at
Perhaps the greatest animated film ever made.
-David Ehrlich, FILM.COM
To see "The Wind Rises" is to simultaneously marvel at the work of a master and regret that this film is likely his last.
-Kenneth Turan, LA TIMES
Hayao Miyazaki's hauntingly beautiful historical epic draws a sober portrait of Japan between the two World Wars.
-Scott Foundas, VARIETY
A work like this serves to remind us of the shining beacons Miyazaki's left behind him, the testaments to pursuing beauty in the face of so much ugliness, themselves lasting reminders of the quiet rewards of determination.
