A fantastic animated period piece set during the Muromachi era in Japanese history. It follows a young man who is looking for a cure for his curse from a demon before he dies. At the same time, the film explores environmental issues, showing the effects of a brutal war between the nature gods and humans. The story is action packed and fast paced, drawing freely from Japanese mythology and modern hot topic political issues. Similarly, the renowned animation is a combination of classic hand drawn animation and pioneering 3-D rendering.

It’s not just an excellent animated film, but an excellent film period. A mature story that mixes feudal Japan with folklore, complex characters, beautiful visuals, an awesome score that all blend into one masterpiece. This movie does the Man vs Nature story just right. No side is better than the other, and no side is worse than the other.
