Princess Mononoke Cert. PG Picture house at FACT

  • Running time133 minutes
  • DirectorHayao Miyazaki
  • GenreAnime

This magnificent epic traces Japan’s move from the Middle Ages to modernity with a breathtaking artistry that first brought Miyazaki to the attention of Disney, who distributed the film in the USA.

Out of the woods leaps an extraordinary beast, a gigantic Boar God writhing with snakes, causing death and mayhem on its rampaging way. Young Prince Ashitaka slays the beast, but receives a wound in his arm and becomes infected with the same sickness that had enraged the Boar, a sickness stemming from disharmony between humans and nature.

Ashitaka sets off to find a cure, travelling westward through the forest, where he encounters Mononoke, a human girl raised as a wolf who now leads the battle between forest gods and the encroaching settlement of iron miners – who themselves are under attack from a group of samurai.

The intricacies of this world make for a refreshingly complex moral order, and all choices are hard ones. It’s a story with depth and force, leavened with generous touches of the utterly unexpected – a convocation of head-wobbling forest sprites, for example.
