The thought-provoking, aesthetically pleasing animated films of Hayao Miyazaki attract audiences well beyond the director’s native Japan. Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away were critically acclaimed upon U.S. release, and the earlier My Neighbor Totoro and Kiki’s Delivery Service have found popularity with Americans on DVD. This critical study of Miyazaki’s work begins with an analysis of the visual conventions of manga, Japanese comic books, and animé; an overview of Japanese animated films; and a consideration of the techniques deployed by both traditional cel and computer animation. This section also details Miyazaki’s early forays into comic books and animation, and his output prior to his founding of Studio Ghibli. Part Two concentrates on the Studio Ghibli era, outlining the company’s development and analyzing the director’s productions between 1984 and 2004, including Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro and his newest film, Howl’s Moving Castle. The second section also discusses other productions involving Studio Ghibli, including Grave of the Fireflies and The Cat Returns. Appendices supply additional information about Studio Ghibli’s merchandise production, Miyazaki’s global fan base, and the output of other Ghibli directors.

Hayao Miyazaki has gained worldwide recognition as a leading figure in the history of animation, alongside Walt Disney, Milt Kahl, Tex Avery, Chuck Jones, Yuri Norstein and John Lasseter. In both his films and his writings, Miyazaki invites us to reflect on the unexamined beliefs that govern our lives. His eclectic body of work addresses compelling philosophical and political questions and demands critical attention. This study examines his views on contemporary culture and economics from a broad spectrum of perspectives, from Zen and classical philosophy and Romanticism, to existentialism, critical theory, poststructuralism and psychoanalytic theory.

Movie is considered to be an important art form; films entertain, educate, enlighten and inspire audiences. Film is a term that encompasses motion pictures as individual projects, as well as — in metonymy — the field in general. The origin of the name comes from the fact that photographic film (also called filmstock) has historically been the primary medium for recording and displaying motion pictures. Many other terms exist — motion pictures (or just pictures or "picture"), the silver screen, photoplays, the cinema, picture shows, flicks — and commonly movies.

Artist-writer-director-producer Hayao Miyazaki is often called "the Walt Disney of Japan." His animated theatrical features have been smash hits in Japan, and many, including My Neighbor Totoro and Kiki's Delivery Service, are already familiar to American audiences. Now, with Disney-Miramax's imminent release of Princess Mononoke,, Miyazaki's masterwork and one of the top-grossing film in all Japanese history, this "animation master" is about to take America and the world by storm. Mixing first-hand interview and personal insights with critical evaluations of art, plot, production qualities, and literary themes, McCarthy provides a film-by-film appraisal that examines technique as well as message. She reveals Miyazaki to be not just a master of the art of animation, but a meticulous craftsman who sees his work as a medium for shaping the humanistic and environmental concerns of our times. An overview of the artist and his early career is followed by in-depth examinations of seven major Miyazaki films: Nausicaä of the Valley of Wind, Laputa: Castle in the Sky, Castle of Cagliostro, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, Porco Rosso, and Princess Mononoke. Included are design and technical data, story synopses and character sketches, personnel and filmography data, and critical evaluation. Illustrations throughout, in color and black and white, show the detail and vigor of Miyazaki's art. Written for anime fans as well as students of film, literature, and popular culture, McCarthy's book raises animation criticism to a whole new level and is an essential guide to the work of a world-class filmmaker. London-based Helen McCarthy is author of Anime! A Beginner's Guide to Japanese Animation, The Anime Movie Guide, and (with Jonathan Clements) The Erotic Anime Movie Guide. She appears frequently on radio and TV and at conferences around the world.

Set in the remote splendor of the forests of northern Japan, Princess Mononoke is a spectacular "eco-fable" that pits the forces of industry and civilization against the fierce yet fragile natural environment. Drawing on Japanese folklore, myth, and legend, the filmmakers have created powerful gods and spirits who command a lush forest that is being threatened and polluted by the presence of an ironworks. More a chronicle of the struggle between civilization and nature than a battle between good and evil, Princess Mononoke introduces us to such characters as Prince Ashitaka, Lady Eboshi, and, of course, Princess Mononoke herself.

Now the readers can enjoy a monograph about one of the most amazing authors of the contemporary era, Hayao Miyazaki, and written by a great fan and expert of his cinema and his art. After his review on Tim Burton’s work, the young Jacopo Caneva faces the cinema and the music by Miyazaki and the most important production house for animated movies (called anime in Japanese) of the world, Studio Ghibli. This team has produced masterpieces such as Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle and My Neighbour Totoro. Its last production Kaze tachinu (The Wind Rises) surprised the audience at the Venice Film Festival and made a whole country talk about topics like peace and war. Miyazaki’s cinema is a combination of ecologism, pacifism, anti-fascism, strong female characters and considerations about the future of humanity: a mix that could be found only in works by great authors, such as Charlie Chaplin. The young Jacopo Caneva present his peculiar style in describing the movies thorugh the music, which has been mostly composed by Joe Hisaishi. The music is mainly based on piano compositions and emotional orchestra music that hangs between West and East, minimalism and romanticism. Music confers a new dimension to the extraordinary visions of Miyazaki and the other directors from Studio Ghibli; this dimension can live and triumph only in the animated world, which represent the cinematic form par excellence. A book you can’t miss if you are a fan of one of the directors who marked the history of cinema.
