Has anyone seen the movie “The Wind Rises”? It is an animated film about Jiro Horikoshi, Japanese Aeronautical Engineer.

“The Wind Rises” is a fictionalised biopic Jiro Horikoshi (1903–1982), designer of the Mitsubishi A5M fighter aircraft and its successor, the Mitsubishi A6M Zero used by the Empire of Japan during World War II The film is adapted from Miyazaki’s manga of the same name, which was in turn loosely based on both the 1937 novel “The Wind Has Risen” by Tatsuo Hori and the life of Jiro Horikoshi. “The_Wind_Rises”.


It’s not the first time someone has recommended it to me.
Sounds very interesting

Yes, I have seen this movie. It is historically inaccurate, but definitely work seeing, especially if you are into Anime.
