A heart-warming love story whose intricate, hand-drawn animation will dazzle the eyes, writer-director Hayao Miyazaki’s eighth film for Studio Ghibli was loosely inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid.” Ponyo is a goldfish living happily with her wizard father and sea-goddess mother until wanderlust brings her to a little fishing village, where she is rescued by Sosuke. Smitten by the boy, Ponyo becomes human with some of her dad’s sorcery, but using those powers throws the whole world out of balance. Will Ponyo choose to live in the world of people or of magic? “This poetic, visually breathtaking work by the greatest of all animators has such deep charm that adults and children will both be touched." – Roger Ebert.
