Nausicań of the Valley of the Wind

 (1984)

Nausicań of the Valley of the Wind Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

A thousand years after a global war, a seaside kingdom known as the Valley of the Wind remains one of only a few areas still populated. Led by the courageous Princess Nausicaa, the people of the Valley are engaged in a constant struggle with powerful insects called Ohmu, who guard a poisonous jungle that is spreading across the Earth. Nausicaa and her brave companions, together with the people of the Valley, strive to restore the bond between humanity and the Earth.

Nausicań of the Valley of the Wind Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Disney's exceedingly respectful 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer is almost as striking as the film's soaring visuals. Colors aren't as vibrant as some might expect, but there's a solemn strength, a sand-swept beauty and an organic restraint to Miyazaki's dusty watercolor palette that, in many ways, is far more evocative and arresting than the alternative. Detail is just as admirable. Every fluid stroke of the animators' lineart has been perfectly preserved, their ink-work is deeper and cleaner than it's ever been, and their hand-drawn backgrounds and airships are a stunning sight to behold. Moreover, the film's fine grain structure is intact and, despite its prominence, both consistent and attractive, lending each scene a filmic quality that only showcases the transfer's cinematic integrity. Yes, a number of soft shots pepper the proceedings, slight telecine wobbling is apparent, and negligible cel nicks and specks, as well as some minor print imperfections, appear throughout. However, each and every quote-unquote issue traces back to the original source and very few instances, if any, detract from the overall impact or authenticity of the presentation. The studio's encode warrants even higher praise. There isn't any significant artifacting, banding, ringing, compression anomalies, aliasing or, really, anything at all that might distract seasoned videophiles from Miyazaki's remarkable imagery.

To be clear: Nausicań doesn't look as if it rolled out of an animation studio yesterday, a fact that will probably elicit apathy from viewers hoping for a water-into-wine redux. But as twenty-seven-year old anime classics go, Disney's reverent high definition transfer makes it that much easier to sink into Miyazaki's dazzling vision and float away.


Nausicań of the Valley of the Wind Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Choices, choices. Unlike Ponyo, Nausicań includes a trio of lossless options: a solid Japanese DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track, an equally impressive English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mix and, for those it benefits, a comparable French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 offering. There are a few small differences between the three, the most notable being that voices in the original Japanese-language track are brighter but thinner than their English-dub counterparts. Be that as it may, it's important to remember Nausicań's Japanese cast delivered their lines in 1984 while the film's American cast was recorded some twenty years later. Needless to say, every difference audiophiles will encounter is inherent to each version's original sound design, not varying quality among Disney's lossless tracks. Regardless of whether you choose Japanese, English or French though, dialogue remains clear and intelligible, effects are reasonably well-grounded, low-end tones are granted some relative oomph (despite the lack of any LFE channel support), Joe Hisaishi's score holds its own, and the whole of the soundscape, though dated, is entirely serviceable. I do wish a 5.1 or 7.1 remix were available, if for no other reason than to sweeten the pot, but I doubt many film purists or Miyazaki devotees will be sitting at home shaking their fists at the faithful options at their disposal.
