He gave us the delightful Porco Rosso, Mononoke Princess, Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle; his new film, Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea, is, like those others, a children's entertainment, this time loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid.
It is the story of Ponyo, an appealing little goldfish, who longs to become human after she meets Sosuke, a five year old boy: he rescues her after she becomes stuck in a jam jar.
But Miyazaki embellishes Andersen's tale, creating a story that incorporates a lovely relationship between Sosuke and his mother Lisa, and touches on childhood fears about loss, separation and mortality, as well as environmental concerns.
The film is a visual treat. Shapes shift, objects and characters assume new forms; breathtakingly, Ponyo's goldfish sisters become crashing, fish-shaped waves.
One of the rooms where Miyazaki works
The wonderful movie was seen at Venice Film Festival 2008, and you can already see Ponyo in Spain.
Nos brindó las maravillosas Porco Rosso, Princesa Mononoke, El Viaje de Chihiro y El Castillo Ambulante, y su nueva película Ponyo en el Acantilado es, como las demás, para niños, pero esta vez haciendo una adaptación del cuento de la Sirenita de Christian Andersen.
Es la historia de Ponyo, un atrayante pececito naranja, que desea convertirse en humano después de conocer a Sosuke, un niño de cinco años que le rescata de quedar atrapado en un tarro de mermelada.
Pero Miyazaki adorna el cuento de Christian Andersen, creando una historia que incorpora la bonita relación entre Sosuke y su madre Lila, los miedos de la niñez, como la separación y la muerte y también introduce el tema medio ambiental.
La peli es un auténtico regalo y ya se puede ver en cines de toda España!!
