It's mostly for children, but Miyazaki makes it difficult not to love anyway.

Ponyo is The Little Mermaid filtered through Miyazaki's amazing imagination, but also gets rid of the sexist elements of the original fairy tale by making it about a 5-year-old's pure platonic love, and not taking the fish girl's voice away. It would in fact be pretty easy to miss the connection between the two stories, as Ponyo reinvents even the image of the mermaid. It's a beautiful and charming film filled with magic, and its underwater world is entrancing, though Miyazaki never lets us forget how polluted we've made it (without beating the pulpit). And then there's the port town of the surface world, which is just as distinctive and memorable - is it me or did the bit where the mom races away from the the waves on a curving road inspire a similar sequence in the Aquaman movie? Irrepressibly cute, it's a feast for the eyes and for the soul.

The story is a bit juvenile and simplistic, and this does not have the adult appeal that Totoro or Spirited Away has, but visually stunning, like all of Miyazaki's films.

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 friendship. There are scenes of great details like the way Ponyo sits uncomfortably in the boy's house because she's not used to human life that turns a crazy story line in to a magical one. As 90% of the film takes place in the ocean, get ready for a magical ride with sea creatures so beautifully drawn that it feels like a painting coming to life... Miyazaki is so great. I still wonder to this day how he controls the characters and the environment so perfectly? It becomes so real that even his films made for 5-year-old's entertains adults equally. Ponyo is certainly a great addition to the world of animation that Miyazaki has created and this 19 year old just enjoys getting lost in this world.

Even after being 70 years old, this little man still has a child inside him. Ponyo proves that point once again. Get ready to be dazzled by his incredible artistry seen in Ponyo and you won't regret it.

4.8/5
