Princess mononoke forest spirit head
Moro: Silence boy! Ashitaka is exiled by his village and sent westward to find the cause of the demon's corruption as well as a cure for his curse. The curse gives him superhuman strength, but will eventually spread through his body and kill him. The first performances were scheduled for London's New Diorama Theatre and sold out in 72 hours, a year in advance. Ashitaka is told that the mark will spread throughout his body, killing him. The film was extremely successful in Japan and with both anime fans and "arthouse" moviegoers in English-speaking countries. The villagers discover that the demon was a boar god, Nago, corrupted by an iron ball lodged in his body. Showbiz have said that the translation from Japanese to English and the alterations in which it has resulted have weakened the film somewhat.
