I was on the verge of tears often throughout Kaze Tachinu, often for no real reason. The story was just so sweet, sad, and beautifully told.

The use of human voice intermingling with nature and mechanical sounds was a stroke of genius.

I was somewhat disconcerted by passivity the love interest character and what she seemed to represent thematically. I suppose the film was simply honest about women’s treatment in this era.

If it was Miyazaki’s aim to humanize the efforts of these war engineers, to redeem creativity of all kinds, and to put the important things in life into perspective, then I consider this a success.
