Hayao Miyazaki, 1992

Before making Princess Mononoke, Hayao Miyazaki made a movie about his favourite subject, aviation!  The film is fantastic, poetic and realistic all at once. He signs here a personal work adapting a manga that he himself wrote. If this is not his best-known film, it’s clearly one of his most beautiful!

In 1930s Italy, a veteran World War I pilot is cursed to look like an anthropomorphic pig.

“Not only does this rank among Miyazaki’s finest achievements, it reflects his personal love of aviation, his political concerns and his fullest expression to date of a non-fantasy world resembling our own.” – Robert Koehler, Variety
