The Wind Rises


Miyazaki’s final movie, The Wind Rises, is released to mixed reviews due to its controversial subject matter – Japan’s role in World War II.  The movie tells the fictionalized tale of Jiro Korikoshi, the engineer behind Japan’s most successful fighter planes during the war.

Jiro Horikoshi was the most gifted man of his time in Japan. He wasn’t thinking about weapons – really all he desired was to make exquisite planes.
