Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea

Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea or Ponyo (崖の上のポニョ) as it is known in Japan is a Japanese animated fantasy film released in 2008, written and directed by Japan’s master animator Hayao Miyazaki. The animated adventure centers on a goldfish princess named Ponyo who befriends a 5 year old human boy, Sosuke and wants to become a human girl. It is set against hand-drawn watercolour backdrops of sea and sky, and is a poetic adventure for all ages.

I love this movie for its cute characters, fantastic animation, great music soundtrack and warm heart-felt story.

The film has won numerous awards both in Japan and Internationally.
