A goldfish sneaks away from home and floats off on the back of a jellyfish. After getting stuck in a glass jar, she drifts to the shore where she is freed by Sousuke, a five-year-old boy who lives with his mother Lisa in a house by the sea while his father Koichi works on a fishing boat. After healing a cut on Sousuke's finger by licking it, the goldfish is named Ponyo by her new friend. Unknown to Sousuke, Ponyo already has a name and a family. Her father Fujimoto, a sorcerer who forsook his humanity to live underwater, searches frantically for his daughter Brunhilde. When found and captured, Ponyo rejects her birth name and declares that she wants to become a human. Using the power received from Sousuke's blood, she grows arms and legs and escapes to the surface once more. But the magic released into the ocean causes an imbalance in nature, causing the Moon to start falling out of orbit and the tides to grow dangerously stronger. Reunited with Ponyo, Sousuke must pass an ancient test to restore order in the world and let his companion live on as a human.

The most child-like Ghibli film is a treat for parents and children alike. It is colorful and full of HAM….I mean good family values!


Maybe the greatest kids movie there is, FUN FUN FUN and once more FUN!


One of my favourite films of all time. I have never felt so happy about life after watching a film.


Ghibli’s The Little Mermaid.


Great movie for kids, and exceptionally cute. The story of a goldfish becoming human to love a small boy.


Pretty good as most Miyazaki’s, however not my prefered


I just remember that Miley Cyrus’s little sister & the younger Jonas Brother’s brother did a duet together for this movie when it came out.
