Great short film made by a promising young norwegian director, Magnus Biringvad. The first of many.
From a male perspective, this movie is brutal and disturbing to say at least. The breathtaking, abstract first half of the film is perhaps the most scary thing I`ve ever seen. Scarlett Johansson is perfect for the role as this mysterious femme fatale alien, with her russian like hair, tremendous lips and the fur coat.
The score, made by Mica Levi is utter brilliant.
This is my first Studio Ghibli film and I`m stunned.
Ponyo is a charming and gorgeous animated movie about a boy and a girl who develops a beautiful friendship. But what really made me fall in love with the film, was all the amazing colors and drawings and the things Ponyo learns and discovers for her first time. I felt like going to the pet store, buy a goldfish and name it Ponyo.
Cant wait to watch more movies from the studio and Hayao Miyazaki. This is perhaps one of the most beautiful things I`ve seen so far when it comes to animated movies.
