Porco Rosso (1992), JPN



Quite a bizarre film. It’s Sunday so I thought i’d watch some kind of animation, so this was it!

I’ve heard of this film quite a lot, I see it on the shelves at various shops in the World Cinema section. It wasn’t what I thought it’d be. It’s all about a man who got turned into a pig but now flys a plane to capture/kill pirates lol. He has his own quiet little island where he lies on the beach waiting for a new job.

porcorosso202The story is mostly about Porco (or Crimson Pig in English :S, it’s Porco Rosso in German), trying to beat the American pilot to save himself financially and stop a girl he’s looking after to not marry the american.

porco_rossoIt’s a little stupid in parts, and I can’t believe they could turn it into a 1 & 1/2 hour movie. It was interesting to watch but maybe I wasn’t in the mood for it. It was also nice to see a Japanese film based in a different country (Italy).
