Kaze Tachinu (The Wind Rises) Episode 1

After the end of the Second World War, Jirô revisits his dreams as he did several times in his life, to meet Caproni for, possibly, the last time. Jirô expresses his regret and sorrow of the destruction and devastation his "Zero" fighter had caused during the war. Caproni comforts him, saying that "his dream was nonetheless realized" and that airplanes "are beautiful, cursed dreams". Caproni then directs Jiro's attention beyond the grassy hill they were standing on. Jirô, stunned with joy, sees Naoko coming towards him, holding a parasol in her hand. Waving to Jirô, she calls to him, "you must live, must live!" Jirô, barely able to speak, nods his head. Her last message complete, she rises with the wind, vanishing from sight. Continuing his walk with Caproni, Jirô looks to the sky and the wind, taking his wife's words deeply to heart.

Kaze Tachinu (The Wind Rises) Episode 1


There are two main elements highlighting this path ofinterpretation in The Wind Rises. The first indicator is the quote from PaulValery (1871-1945) from which the title itself The Wind Rises is derived:"The wind rises ... we must try to live" is the first line from thelast strophe of the poem Le cimetiere marin (The Graveyard by the Sea,1920/1922), one of the most important poems of the French literature and PaulValery's most famous poetical work. 041b061a72
