    About PONYO

    Animation, Hayao Miyazaki, Japan, 2008/9, 101 min. In English - featuring the voices of Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, Tina Fey, Liam Neeson, Lily Tomlin, Noah Cyrus and Frankie Jonas. PONYO (Gake no Ue no Ponyo/Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea) is the latest tour de force from animation master Hayao Miyazaki and his Academy Award winning Studio Ghibli. Perfect for audiences of all ages, PONYO is a return to the innocent pleasures of MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO, with dazzling and entirely hand-drawn visuals that start simply and erupt into fluid, cascading symphonies of color. The story centers on the loving relationship between Sosuke, a five-year-old boy, and a magical goldfish named Ponyo, the rambunctious young daughter of a sorcerer father and a sea-goddess mother. After a chance encounter, Ponyo yearns to become a human so she can be with Sosuke. As to be expected with Miyazaki, the film is awash in pure unbridled imagination and visual wonder-but it is the tender warmth, humor, and devotion of Ponyo and Sosuke that form the emotional heart of this film.
