I saw Ponyo on Saturday!

What can I say? Gorgeous movie. Absolutely bursting with stunning nuanced animation, as I'd expect from Miyazaki. Truly a work of art. I loved the "prehistoric" sea creatures. Those scenes with the dappled light filtering through the (mostly underwater) forests, with the kids on the little candle boat were beautiful. (The one thing that didn't quite hold together was the story -toward the end. But, heck, I'd have loved a movie of this artistic caliber ever if it hadn't had a story at all.) Beauty, humor, character, heart...


Go see it, if you haven't already!
