  It does not have his computer: With technology, the Japanese cartoon classic Hayao Miyazaki created a fairytale world that is in front of big productions like Avatar or Alice in Wonderland does not need to hide. On the contrary, the color and shapes, who have crafted the animators of Studio Ghibli here to the canvas, has a “real” than some creature owes her life to a computing machine. Ponyo – The great adventure on the sea / Gake no ue no Ponyo is a film for children and adults. And not only in the sense that adults have in the adventures of two five-year old fun. Director Miyazaki has woven actually two movies in one. One of them tells a story suitable for children in remote based on Hans Christian Andersen The little mermaid. The other way of association to reflect on what goes wrong in the human world. And this is more questions than answers. Philosophical, ecological, and psychodynamic issues. The small Ponyo is a goldfish girl who lives with his father and many siblings in the sea. Ponyo Actually, it lacks nothing, after all, her father, the stern magician Fujimoto, a powerful man but he frighten off Ponyos mother, the goddess of compassion. She no longer lives with the family. Whether out of a sense of lack or out of pure curiosity – one day books from Ponyo. This is a dangerous adventure. Ponyo ends up half dead on a beach, where they found the five year old Sosuke. From one second to the other Ponyo wants only one thing: Stay At Sosuke and a real human being with arms and legs and all that entails. The problem is: During the transition from fish to humans has released Ponyo magical powers of enormous destructive power. The sea is raging, threatening huge tsunami waves to drown like all of humanity. And no one knows how the whole thing is connected. While the children are offered in the auditorium chair an adventure may be the older viewers are looking forward to a representation of the sea, as it is sensuous hardly conceivable. Hayao Miyazaki has great opera and ballet at the same time. As choreographed as the jellyfish float across the screen, dancing swarms of fish develop their splendor. The sea is becoming the actors and provides links to streams of thought that do not need firm ground under their feet, but may be carried away easily. That nature strikes back, when a man robbed her something like, one come to mind. Or the thought of the psychological dimension of what grows under the surface. But the brooding about the fateful separation of magic from the rational, of instinct and intellect. The film is open to many interpretations – Friends of the Opera will certainly discover further allusions. In any case, the metaphor of the sea invites one to plunge into the depths. This must be one not. On the surface this film is life as varied and diverse. This is perhaps the greatest achievement of the director: the shallow currents of the deeper waters to flow into each other can be so elegant that the whole is a lively bubbling stream remains.
