Hayao Miyazaki's magical box office hit in Japan is re-presented here for the US and UK market using voices of Hollywood stars such as Claire Danes, Billy Crudup and Minnie Driver. Ashitaka (Crudup) is a young warrior who travels to the forests of the west in order to search for the cure which will save him from a terrible curse. But almost as soon as he arrives he gets caught up in the prolonged battle which rages between the humans and the forest animals, the former being led by Lady Eboshi (Driver), and the latter by San (Danes), a young woman raised by wolves.
Young warrior Ashitaka receives a wound that refuses to heal in a battle with a cursed beast. Searching for a remedy for the supernatural injury, he leaves his remote village for the forbidding forests of the west, where he finds a human enclave under siege from divine powers: deities of times past, the wolf gods, and San, a wild girl of the forest.
Hayao Miyazaki's masterpiece depicts the clash between the natural world and its old gods, and the rise of humans and the beginnings of modern civilisation. It shows three elements of the Japanese psyche warring for supremacy in an epic ecological fable of stirring mythic power.
The first of Miyazaki's films to gain mainstream attention in the West, Princess Mononoke features an English-language script by Neil Gaiman, author of Anansi Boys and American Gods, and vocal performances from Claire Danes, Minnie Driver, Billy Crudup and Gillian Anderson.
