Caproni: Airplanes are beautiful, cursed dreams, waiting for the sky to swallow them up.
The Wind Rises is not just a brilliant animated film; it has to be one of the finest dramas ever made. And it’s, animation genius, Hayao Miyazaki's final film.
The song playing (Hikōki-gumo by Yumi Arai) during the end credits set the final mood for the film; a song that was written for a friend who passed away. The standout scene has to be where Caproni explains to Jiro the problem with the army - they want everything big (which has an element of truth – see The Aviator).
