Kaze tachinu

Director: Hayao Miyazaki
Stars: Hideaki Anno, Hidetoshi Nishijima, Miori Takimoto

A look at the life of Jiro Horikoshi, the man who designed Japanese fighter planes during World War II.

It is unlike the first few Miyazaki films I’ve watched, which are rather feel-good movies. This one’s a drama, and could be dragging perhaps, but I still enjoyed it.
