One of Miyazaki's masterpiece.
I finally got to see the English dub and they did a great job with it. I really liked Stanley Tucci as Caproni.
A movie where Miyazaki had the guts to tell a story no one would want to touch. He was also subtle enough to tell the story about the man and not get caught up by the context, huge credit here. However in my opinion the movie is marred by big mistakes like mono channel sound, human generated sound effects, a pointless childhood sequence and side-plots (ie his wife) that keep the pace slow. Out of the duo feature films by Studio Ghibli, The Tale of Princess Kaguya by Takahata is the better film.
