Plot

In Early 1930's era Italy, air pirates, bounty hunters and high flyers of all sorts rule the skies. The most cunning and skilled of these pilots is Porco Rosso, a man cursed with the head of a pig after watching the spirits of the pilots killed in the last air battle he fought in rise to the heavens. He now makes a living taking jobs, such as rescuing those kidnapped by air pirates. Donald Curtis, Porco's rival in the air and in catching the affections of women, provides a constant challenge to the hero, culminating in a hilarious, action packed finale.
 

Comments

Miyazaki is God When I sat down to watch this, I had just seen Princess Mononoke and Nausicaa in the same day, and harbored doubts as to whether Miyazaki could do an all-out comedy. As it turned out, he is as unnervingly brilliant at evoking laughs as he is at fantasy.This is a rare animated film that works on every conceivable level, almost BECAUSE there's no compelling reason for it to be animated.Aside from the hero's identity as a pig (which is never fully explained, mind you), everything here is pretty much real-world (or the screwball comedy version of real world).The level of detail is, as expected, mind-boggling, and the flight models of the maneuvering planes are gorgeous. Fans of animation, aviation, comedy, or pretty much anything else should look into this.
