Film title

Ponyo


Synopsis

One day little Sosuke is playing by the seashore when he finds a fish trapped in a jar. Except, Ponyo isn't just an ordinary fish. In fact, soon she isn't a fish at all, having turned herself into a little girl. Sosuke is happy because he has someone to play with, but there are suddenly great storms at sea that seem in some way to be connected to Ponyo's transformation. Made by the great Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki, who is behind such classics as Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle - Ponyo is a magical and touching animated adventure that will prove entrancing to younger audiences.

Contains very mild threat.
