As I already wrote on the other blog, I am a huge fan of Miyazaki’s works. So when the FNAC (the equivalent of HMV in France) sold three Miyazaki’s DVDs for the price of two, I am taking the occasion.
I have been watching Porco Rosso several times over in French, dubbed by Jean Reno for the eponymous character, whose true name is Marco Pagot.
But with the DVD I took the liberty to watch it in Japanese. This was a great experience as I really like this language.
The story as taken from Wikipedia :
The story is about an Italian World War I fighter ace, now living as a freelance bounty hunter chasing “air pirates” in the Adriatic Sea. The man has been cursed and transformed into a pig. Once called Marco Pagot, he is now known to the world as “Porco Rosso”, Italian for “Red Pig”.
Evironmental issues are not present in this one. This film is more focusing on friendship, courage, persistance, love, dedication…
Full of great characters, great views of the Adriatic sea, awesome planes… It is as always with Miyazaki a must watch. If you haven’t watched it yet, please take 90 minutes of your time and watch it 🙂
