A look at the life of Jiro Horikoshi, the man who designed Japanese fighter planes during World War II.
The original Japanese version of film poster shows Naoko painting alone on a hillside, her skirt billowing in the wind. The US version portrays the same scene, but adds Jiro leaning over to kiss her and a paper plane flying overhead.
Bravo! A beautiful dream.
After Jiro tells Nahoko that he's finished designing his plane, he falls asleep. Nahoko removes his glasses and places them on the floor behind their heads. In the next shot, from behind their heads, there are no glasses on the floor.
