“Eloquent, profound and moving, it left me with a heart full of bittersweet joy, a head dizzy with dreamy visions and cheeks wet from tears that rolled like waves on a distant beach.”~Mark Kermode, The Guardian

Aroview: The first non-Japanese film to be produced by Studio Ghibli follows a nameless shipwrecked man who meets a giant red turtle on a deserted island. Entirely dialogue-free, this is a magnificent magical-realist fable, rich in atmosphere and deceptively simple.
