(Hayao Miyazaki / 2009 / Japan / 101 minutes / Cert U / dubbed)
Another modern fairy-tale from master animator Miyazaki who brought us Howl's Moving Castle and Princess Mononoke. A five-year old boy named Sousuke finds a fish trapped in a bottle, saves her and names her Ponyo. Turns out Ponyo is a magic talking fish with a playful personality. Unlike other Studio Ghibli films Ponyo has a simple, child-friendly plot but the complexity of the hand-drawn scenes is typical and mesmerising. Children and adults will be swept away. The film will be preceded by the short 'The House of Small Cubes'.
