"Another good one from Ghibli Studios"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Another gentle little tale, strongly in Japanese idiom. A good message in caring for others and the environment, but its approach, being Japanese, will need a bit of familiarity with that idiom. The effort required will be worth while.

"A Charming Little Gem"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Yet another Hayao Miyazaki classic. Ponyo is suitable for young and young at heart! A sweet story about a little boy who finds and helps a goldfish who turns into a little girl. They both then learn about helping each other and how being responsible for others is an important thing in life. Filled with beautiful design and charming characters, Studio Ghibli has done wonders again.

Description

Ponyo (Special Edition)

(Gake no Ue no Ponyo), initially titled in English as Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea, is a 2008 Japanese animated family fantasy film written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki of Studio Ghibli and Toho.

One morning near his seaside home, five year old Sosuke discovers a goldfish he names Ponyo. Her head stuck in a jam jar, he rescues her, and fascinated with each other, they promise to stay firm friends. When Ponyo's father, a powerful underwater sorcerer, forces her to return to the ocean depths, Ponyo is determined to join Sosuke on the surface and become human. What follows is an amazing underwater adventure for all ages.

From the Studio Ghibli Collection.

Critic Reviews:

  • " Miyazaki's pa­interly eye keeps things afloat " – Rafer Guzman
  • " Miyazaki's back, and still a force of nature. A weird, wonderful aquatic romp, Ponyo is also a meditation on the state of this blue planet. Catch it. " – Nick De Semlyen
  • " We're drawn under the waves of the sea to a hidden enclave of neon-hued aqualife more vibrant, surreal and enchanting than any of the floating 3D whatsits in ‘Avatar’. " – David Jenkins
