Riffs - Heidi, Girl of the Alps

This shot from episode three of Heidi was riffed by Miyazaki in the stunning flashback scene in Nausicaa.  Both scenes are remarkable to watch, even though the emotional overtones are completely different.  Both share an almost dreamlike quality, presented in visual styles that dart in unique directions.  This willingness to shift gears is a trademark of the Studio Ghibli films.
