(BGM from The Princess Mononoke Theme)
The latest (and possibly the last) film directed by Miyazaki, "Mononoke Hime" is a story about a mystic fight between the Animal Gods of the forest and humans, which takes place in the Muromachi Period (1333-1568) of Japan.
On the side of the Animal Gods is San (Mononoke Hime), a human girl who was raised by a wolf god. On the side of the humans is Lady Eboshi, who tries to build a kingdom for oppressed people, by cutting down the forest for her iron making operation.
In the middle of this fierce fighting for survival, Ashitaka, an Emishi boy, struggles to find a way for both sides to coexist. But the fighting just becomes more and more bloody and all hope seem to be lost...

My review: The Princess Mononoke, together with Neon Genesis Evangelion, are the BEST animations I've ever seen!
Do you know: The Princess Mononoke is the highest-grossing local movie and the second-highest of all movies (just behind "Titanic") in Japan. It took the FIRST place in the Japanese "Ninki Chart 97"(entertainment focuses chart) and was selected as the BEST movie in "The 22th HOUCHI SHINBUN Annual Movie Award" (another Anime movie, Neon Genesis Evangelion The Movie is also on the top-ten list).
