''Ponyo loves Sosuke! I will be a human, too!''

An animated adventure centered on a 5-year-old boy and his relationship with a goldfish princess who longs to become human.

A good movie

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

Ponyo caught my attention ever since I heard it was going to be Miyazaki's next film and I like his films. Ponyo reminded me a lot of the Disney classic The Little Mermaid as I was watching it. It is a beautiful film for the family. It is a story on love, bravery and friendship which made it a personal film. Like all Miyazaki animated films, the audience are entering a different world. I mean, Pon... read more

Films that I don't think are that great (12 movies items)

" 92% on Rotten Tomatoes. This is definitely Hayao Miyazaki-sensei's strangest work. While I think it's quite good, it's not on par with his other works. Being a Miyazaki film, the animation is stellar and one of a kind. The characters are very likeable and the story is a clever adaptation of The Little Mermaid. My problem with the film is that it was just uncomfortably strange. I did found some scenes to be quite bizarre and at times disturbing, especially when the island setting has been compl"

"29th of September, DVD Miyazakin tuotannosta on kaikki sanottava jo sanottu, eikä Ponyokaan tee kategoriassaan poikkeusta. Kyseessä on jälleen yksi ohjaajan suurimmista töistä. Ponyo on henkeäsalpaavan upeasti animoitu, mutta ennen kaikkea se vie sydämen mennessään tunnelmallaan ja kauniilla tarinallaan. Juonenrakenne on pohjimmiltaan Pieni merenneito uusine aineksineen, mutta kokonaisuudesta on vaikea olla pitämättä. "

MithilVBhoras posted a review 2 years, 8 months ago

“In 2008, the animation world eagerly awaited for another film from the Oscar Winning Mastermind. Yes, the film is Ponyo. Although the general audiences found this film not one of his bests, but critics like Roger Ebert tagged it a true art film for all ages. Boy he was right! The film tells the story of a goldfish who wants to become a human. She befriends Sosuke, a boy of 5 and the one who names her Ponyo. The film is about this friendship and a love that sprouts between the two eventually.

Yeah I know, same old film cliche of love and friendship. But this is where you are wrong. Miyazaki is expert in capturing the emotions and the movements of the characters. When you see both the kids playing, they are not just playing, you seem to be there too witnessing their beautiful frien” read more
