Ghibli: Princess Mononoke

87 comments
Hayao Miyazaki is considered the master of Japanese animation. Co-founder of Studios Ghibli, he has won over a wide audience with his grandiose films with breathtaking scenery and fascinating characters.
Miyazaki is what you might call a "nature fan". Nature is present everywhere in his films and is highlighted each time. This is particularly the case for Princess Mononoke, which can be considered an ecological fable. 
The forest of Princess Mononoke is a mystical and mysterious forest where deities like Moro, a wolf goddess from ancient times, who raises her cubs alone, and a young human girl, San, whom she considers her daughter, live.
The spirit of the forest rules over this forest, a deer god with a human head who can give life or take it away. Souls of the forest, the Kodama are spirits in the form of small white men who live in the trees and reflect the state of the forest. If the forest dies, they die with it.
And unfortunately the forest is losing its power. The community of men and women rejected by society that Lady Eboshi has formed needs iron to live and fight against the samurais who covet their land. And for this Lady Eboshi does not hesitate to clear the forest, even if it means confronting the deities. With her new harquebuses, she hunted Nago, the boar god, who in his fury was conquered by a demon. Chased south, Nago attacked the village of Ashitaka. Ashitaka had to kill him but the curse fell on himself, he had to leave his village and go north to find the source of the evil that was eating away at him. He will arrive in this forest where San, a girl raised by wolves, lives and fights against Lady Eboshi.
