The film’s breathtaking animation, coupled with a poignant score by Joe Hisaishi, creates a visually and emotionally immersive experience. “The Wind Rises” is a contemplative journey into creativity, love, and the moral complexities inherent in the pursuit of dreams, elegantly crafted by Miyazaki and his talented team.
