Una película muy bella que derrocha dulzura en todo momento. Explora de manera muy positiva y tierna el amor que surge entre los dos pequeños protagonistas; recordándonos así que los niños son los únicos seres humanos que actúan desinteresadamente y con autenticidad en todo momento.
This is one of Miyazaki’s most visually stunning films, bursting with vibrant colors and elastic, circular motions. When I first saw the film, I was a bit disturbed by the fact that the boy calls his mother by her first name but now, realize that this is consistent with the theme of acceptance, which is the first step to love someone.
Whilst enjoyable the film lacks the compelling emotional power of Miyazaki's best work My Neighbour Totoro, or the well-constructed commentary of Princess Mononoke, landing somewhere in the middle with a simple tale of a young boy who finds a goldfish who has transformed into a young girl. The hand-drawn visuals help give the film charm but the latter stages of the film seem unsure how to conclude the film's ideas.
"Ponyo," another film by Hayao Miyasaki. is a cute and fun story of a girl from the sea wnating to become human. The film focus on the thems of devotion, self-sacrifice and love that combine to make fantastic film. The animation of the film beautiful and just as adorable as you would expect.
Doesn't push as hard on the conservation message as the earlier Nausicaä, but it's made for a different audience, with different intentions. The story is charming & contains wonderful slapstick comedy. The animation style, which resembles organic media, like crayons & colouring pencils, is among the most beautiful of any Studio Ghibli production. Effectively made for young children, the film can be enjoyed by anyone.
A fable on how everything in nature at once seems out of balance in the beginning of love. Lacking in emotional & narrative depth compared to the rest of Miyazaki's oeuvre, it feels a little saccharine & reductive. However, it clearly speaks to a younger audience who can soak up the cutesy & light-hearted story & play between characters. It doesn't have that classic timelessness of his other films but still delights.
