Synopsis

Legendary Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki bows out in typically unorthodox style with this visually stunning story of aeronautical engineer Jiro Horikoshi, a peace-loving designer who nevertheless designed the lethal WWII Zero fighter. His life takes in the Great Kato earthquake of 1923, the Great Depression and, most significantly, the flexing of Japan's military muscles as it joined Germany in preparation for war. Miyazaki's swansong proves to be a genuine flight of fancy.
