Porco Rosso (1992)

Cautiously Recommended
Miyazaki Hayao's much-loved Porco Rosso is a colourful and mildly entertaining though slight and vaguely forgettable '30s-set animated fantasy.


"Acclaimed Japanese animated feature from Studio Ghibli. Set in the 1930s, the film follows Porco Rosso (Shûichirô Moriyama), a talented fighter pilot who is turned into a pig by a magic spell. Adapting well to his porcine transformation, Porco sells himself out as a pilot for hire, until a big shot American flyer arrives, looking to make a name for himself by shooting down the Crimson Pig. With his feisty sidekick Fio (Akemi Okamura), Porco gets his battered plane back into shape for the big showdown." Studiocanal
