Dir. Hayao Miyazaki, Japan, 103 mins, 2008
Studio Ghilbi and director Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away) bring to life a heart warming and imaginative retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairy tale The Little Mermaid.
A young boy named Sosuke rescues a goldfish named Ponyo, and they embark on a fantastic journey of friendship and discovery before Ponyo’s father, a powerful sorcerer, forces her to return to her home in the sea. But Ponyo’s desire to be human upsets the delicate balance of nature and triggers a gigantic storm. Only Ponyo’s mother, a beautiful sea goddess, can restore nature’s balance and make Ponyo’s dreams come true.
