The latest film by Academy Award winning director Hayao Miyazaki, "Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea"is the 2008 No. 1 box office hit in Japan. This timeless tale is brought to life by over 170,000 pages of completely hand drawn animation drawings. The director's attention to detail is what makes this film another Miyazaki masterpiece.
The story is about a young and overeager goldfish named Ponyo who struggles to realize her dream of becoming human and living with a boy named Sosuke after he saved her life by chance. Meanwhile, Sosuke tries to keep a solemn promise to Ponyo that drives them to embark on a magical adventure.Five year-old Sosuke lives high on a cliff overlooking the Inland Sea. One morning while playing on the rocky beach below his house, he discovers a goldfish named Ponyo, her head stuck fast in a jam jar. Sosuke rescues her and keeps her in a green plastic pail.
“I want to be human!” Ponyo declares, and determined to become a little girl and make her way back to Sosuke, Ponyo escapes. But before she does, she empties the Water of Life, Fujimoto’s precious store of magical elixir, into the ocean.
The sea waters rise. Ponyo’s sisters are transformed into enormous fish-shaped tidal waves that climb as high as Sosuke’s house on the cliff. The chaos of the ocean world envelops Sosuke’s little town and it sinks beneath the waves.
A little girl and a little boy. Love and responsibility. The sea and life itself. In an age of nervous anxiety and uncertainty, PONYO ON THE CLIFF BY THE SEA is Hayao Miyazaki’s unreserved depiction of the story of a mother and her child.
