The Red Turtle

The Red Turtle

Japan's famed Studio Ghibli (My Neighbor Tototro, Princess Mononoke) joined forces with award-winning Dutch animator Michael Dudok de Wit ("Father and Daughter") for this impossibly beautiful meditation on life and love. In this dialogue-free narrative, a nameless sailor washes up on the shore of a deserted tropical isle and struggles to survive. In time, he acquires a companion—but the film is more about the slow, steady rhythm of nature than about formal story structure. Despite the fact that little actually happens, you may be surprised at how deeply and emotionally this visual masterpiece washes over you. FULL REVIEW: Silent tale of survival holds surprising depth by Devin D. O’Leary (2/23/2017). 80 minutes PG.
