Overview

Porco Rosso

Master animator Hayao Miyazaki directs this tale about a former World War I flying ace who is also a pig. Slouching towards middle age, Porco Rosso makes his living by flying about in his bright red bi-plane and fighting sky bandits who prey on cruise ships sailing the Adriatic. When he's not engaging in dogfights, this porcine pilot lives on a deserted island retreat. Porco Rosso was once a strapping young man, but after his entire squadron was wiped out, he is mysteriously transformed into a pig. Rosso is defeated in a dogfight against a dashing American rival, who has been hired by the dastardly bandits. With his plane damaged, he finds a repair hangar near Milan run by an aging mechanic named Piccolo, and his spunky granddaughter Fio. Initially skeptical of her mechanical prowess, Rosso is amazed when she and a legion of local women fix his plane. Soon, Porco Rosso is ready to battle his rival.

Keaton was quite deadpan in his voice work for Porco Rosso but the story is a good one. I am a big fan of Studio Gimli.

middle age crisis, this is just the movie to cheer you up. It has no magic spell (except for the one that turned himself to a pig), there are no robots, violence or super strong heros and/or villians involved. In fact both hero and villians shows human weakness that makes them almost loveable. The theme of the story is about freindship, the forever boy in every men and forgiving love of a woman. In Japan the DVD was released with a French overvoice with Jean Réno as Porco, I wonder how Michael Keaton plays this role.

I must say, this is one of the more interesting Miazaki films that I have seen. The main character himself, Porco Rosso, is a man who makes me think of my dad. Must be the attitude and the fact their both middle aged...I liked the story, and the way Porco and other men in the movie act. And even the women have their quirks. Think plane shop where all the workers are women. I swear, this is like the Miazaki film for middle aged men! But it is fun to watch, and I really think anime fans of all sorts will find something to enjoy in this movie.
