Ponyo – 崖の上のポニョ


I took my grand daughter to Hayao Miyazaki’s movie “Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea”. She watches Miyazaki’s anime with concentration at home, but I was slightly nervous because it was her first debut to the cinema before 3 years old.
Miyazaki was reluctant to rely on the efficient computer graphics and all the 170 thousand frames were hand-drawn going back to the origin of animation in this title. I on the other hand had to give up the nostalgia for film because the digital cinema exceeds film in color quality and stability already. I checked with T-Joy Oizumi theater in advance and chose the digital screen.
The debate already started about the new movie, but as long as this is a fairy tale in the small world as ours, I would simply accept it. “Totoro” is the same kind. The Goddess in the sea and the magic are the elements of the same vision of Miyazaki’s world. By the way, Ponyo's real name is Brünhilde under the sea.
My grand daughter only complained for a sooner start during the series of trailers, and watched the show to the end without raising questions.
