Great movie based on the principles of love. Its originality helps you bypass all (little) shortcomings.

Nowadays, almost all the animated movies which come out are CGI. One of the few who's still holding strong is Hayao Miyazaki. This guy is the living proof that hand drawn animated features are still worth it and can be damned gorgeous to look at. Only just to 'see' this movie, it is definitely worth a look. You have here so many beautiful colors, awesome details and a marvelous combination of real... read more

" The Ups: It is an unique Japanese take on "The Little Mermaid" story mixed with "Ride of the Valkyries" but with the mermaid/supernatural creature changed into a goldfish with a human head. It is pretty cute and refreshingly without any kind of villain characters or noisy scary moments even if there are a big storm and a lot of water putting characters into peril. The water sequences look beautiful and like nothing seen in handmade animation I have seen before. Excellent voice cast as well even"
