Now our last prince must cut his

hair and leave us, never to return?

Sometimes I think the gods

are laughing at us.

Our laws forbid us from watching you go,

Ashitaka.

Whatever comes to pass now,

you are dead to us forever.

Farewell.

- Ashitaka!

- Kaya, what are you doing here? You know it's forbidden.

Do you think

I care about that?

I came to give you this so you won't

forget your little sister.

Your crystal dagger.

Kaya, I can't take this.

Please, keep it with you,

brother, to protect you.

You must take it with you. Please, I want

you to have it, so you won't... forget.

Kaya, you know I could

never forget you.

A battle?

No. A massacre.

Where are you going?

Come back here, you coward!

They're unarmed! Move in!

Look! Up there, on the hill!

- It's a warrior!

- Good! His head is mine!

You! Stop!

- My arm! What's happening to me?

- Stop him!

Hurry! Stop him

before he gets away!

Let me pass!

I'm warning you!

A demon.

The mark is

getting bigger.

- Who's that?

- I've never seen him.

Are you selling soup

or donkey piss?

Mommy! Look!

There he is now.

I wouldn't get too close to him.

- Will this be enough?

- Hey! What are you trying to pull?

This isn't money.

Give me back my rice, you little thief.

- Excuse me, but might I inspect that?

- Go ahead.

Mmm? My God!

But this is a lump of pure gold,

you silly woman!

However, if it's money you want, I'll pay for

the rice and take this nugget off your hands.

What do ya say?

My good people, is there a money changer

who could tell us how much this is worth?

No? All right.

Now, I'm just a monk, but I'd

say three bags of rice at least.

That's right, maybe even more. Hey,

wait a minute. Where are you going?

Where are you going?

Give me my gold!

Hey! You can't

just rush off now.

Hayao Miyazaki

Hayao Miyazaki (宮崎 駿, Miyazaki Hayao, born January 5, 1941) is a Japanese film director, producer, screenwriter, animator, author, and manga artist. A co-founder of Studio Ghibli, a film and animation studio, he has attained international acclaim as a masterful storyteller and as a maker of anime feature films, and is widely regarded as one of the greatest animation directors. Born in Bunkyō Ward of Tokyo, Miyazaki expressed interest in manga and animation from an early age, and he joined Toei Animation in 1963. During his early years at Toei Animation he worked as an in-between artist and later collaborated with director Isao Takahata. Notable films to which Miyazaki contributed at Toei include Doggie March and Gulliver's Travels Beyond the Moon. He provided key animation to other films at Toei, such as Puss in Boots and Animal Treasure Island, before moving to A-Pro in 1971, where he co-directed Lupin the Third Part I alongside Takahata. After moving to Zuiyō Eizō (later known as Nippon Animation) in 1973, Miyazaki worked as an animator on World Masterpiece Theater, and directed the television series Future Boy Conan. He joined Telecom Animation Film/Tokyo Movie Shinsha in 1979 to direct his first feature films, The Castle of Cagliostro in 1979 and Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind in 1984, as well as the television series Sherlock Hound. Miyazaki co-founded Studio Ghibli in 1985. He directed multiple films with Ghibli, including Castle in the Sky in 1986, My Neighbor Totoro in 1988, Kiki's Delivery Service in 1989, and Porco Rosso in 1992. The films were met with commercial and critical success in Japan. Miyazaki's film Princess Mononoke was the first animated film to win the Japan Academy Prize for Picture of the Year, and briefly became the highest-grossing film in Japan following its release in 1997; its distribution to the Western world greatly increased Ghibli's popularity and influence outside Japan. His 2001 film Spirited Away became the highest-grossing film in Japanese history, winning the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature at the 75th Academy Awards and considered among the greatest films of the decade. Miyazaki's later films—Howl's Moving Castle, Ponyo, and The Wind Rises—also enjoyed critical and commercial success. Following the release of The Wind Rises, Miyazaki announced his retirement from feature films, though he returned to work on a new feature film in 2016. Miyazaki's works are characterized by the recurrence of themes such as humanity's relationship with nature and technology, the wholesomeness of natural and traditional patterns of living, the importance of art and craftsmanship, and the difficulty of maintaining a pacifist ethic in a violent world. The protagonists of his films are often strong girls or young women, and several of his films present morally ambiguous antagonists with redeeming qualities. Miyazaki's works have been highly praised and awarded; he was named a Person of Cultural Merit for outstanding cultural contributions in November 2012, and received the Academy Honorary Award for his impact on animation and cinema in November 2014. In 2002, American film critic Roger Ebert suggested that Miyazaki may be the best animation filmmaker in history, praising the depth and artistry of his films. more…
