Dir. Hayao Miyazaki. Japan. 2008, 103 mins. DCP. Five-year-old Sosuke lives in a high cliffside house overlooking the sea. One morning while playing on the rocky beach, Sosuke rescues Ponyo, a half-fish, half-human creature who is fascinated by the boy. Sosuke’s world is turned upside down when Ponyo decides to become human. Wild storms flood the land, ancient fish appear in the sea, and magic overtakes the ordinary. In Miyazaki’s loose adaptation of the Little Mermaid fairy tale, with its wondrous vision of life underwater, there are no evil villains to vanquish, only a tender balance to be reached amongst two little kids, two mothers, a wizard, and a small village by the sea.
Rated G; recommended for ages 5+
