starlady: Sheeta & Pazu watch the world open out before them (think in layers)
I went to see this with a bunch of people the weekend it came out in wide release, and the general consensus among our group was that it was beautiful but unsatisfying. In the weeks since I have spent a lot of time arguing with people about it. My conversation with [personal profile] rushthatspeaks in this review of the movie, however, is making me reconsider my perspective and my opinions, and think that I should see it again.

One exceedingly minor quibble: since I went to the trouble of learning classical Japanese, I can tell you that "-nu" is a perfective ending in modern Japanese, and therefore a more accurate translation would be 'The Wind Has Arisen.' /pedantry
