Porco Rosso |
Set in Italy during the 1930s, Porco Rosso follows the high-flying adventures of Marco, a pig who is a renegade ace pilot with a fondness for beaches and old French songs. After rescuing his mechanic, a tomboyish 17-year-old named Fio, from a band of air pirates, Marco finds himself pursued by the Fascist Italian police and an egotistical American flying ace.
Miyazaki's films are known for their fascination with flight, and Porco Rosso features some of the most thrilling aerial scenes ever drawn! You wonÕt soon forget the sweeping panoramas of wind, cloud, smoke, and waterÑand the breathtaking feeling of soaring through the air in an open cockpit. (94 mins., 35mm, rated PG for violence and some mild language, English-language version)
Studio Ghibli founder Hayao Miyazaki insisted that this North American retrospective be presented on beautiful 35mm film, so donÕt miss this rare opportunity to immerse yourself in a modern classic on the big screen and on film.
So that it can be easily enjoyed by younger viewers, this Studio Ghibli feature is presented in a skillfully produced English-language version. (Film fans take note: many of the Studio Ghibli dubbed versions were overseen by PixarÕs John Lasseter.)
