Ashitaka, a prince of the disappearing Ainu tribe, is cursed by a demonized boar god and must journey to the west to find a cure. Along the way, he encounters San, a young human woman fighting to protect the forest, and Lady Eboshi, who is trying to destroy it. Ashitaka must find a way to bring balance to this conflict.

Probably the best movie from Miyazaki. A mixture of old Japanese traditions with the story about the conflict between the industrial human being and the preservation of the Nature.

He is one of the few young men of Emishi people, who had been defeated by Yamato regime (the Japanese Emperor's government) and now live in hiding at the end of the Northern land. He is to be the leader of his people. He has the nobleness of Royal blood and great skills as a hunter. To defend his village, he shot and killed the Tatari God, but in turn, he received a curse of death. He talks little, but has a strong sense of justice.

A girl who was raised by a mountain wolf. She has an intense hatred against humans who invade the forest. With a strange mask on her face, and riding a huge mountain wolf, she repeatedly attacks Tatara Ba (the iron making place). After meeting Ashitaka, her heart sways between the Gods and humans.

A calm and well-composed woman who leads the group of Tatara Mono (iron making people) at the foot of a deep mountain. They dig the mountain, melt iron sand, strike iron, and make Ishibiya (Stone fire arrow - the gun-like thing in the preview). She buys girls who were sold (to brothels), and gives them work at Tatara Ba, where no woman was allowed originally. She treats even outcasts from the society as "humans", and is respected and loved by both men and women.

I go to the movies for many reasons. Here is one of them. I want to see wondrous sights not available in the real world, in stories where myth and dreams are set free to play. Animation opens that possibility, because it is freed from gravity and the chains of the possible. Realistic films show the physical world; animation shows its essence.

Animated films are not copies of "real movies," are not shadows of reality, but create a new existence in their own right. True, a lot of animation is insipid, and insulting even to the children it is made for. But great animation can make the mind sing.

Hayao Miyazaki is a great animator, and his "Princess Mononoke" is a great film. Do not allow conventional thoughts about animation to prevent you from seeing it. It tells an epic story set in medieval Japan, at the dawn of the Iron Age, when some men still lived in harmony with nature and others were trying to tame and defeat it. It is not a simplistic tale of good and evil, but the story of how humans, forest animals and nature gods all fight for their share of the new emerging order. It is one of the most visually inventive films I have ever seen.
