    Extremely Slow. I think it could have been done in 60 minutes with a little faster pace. Really disapointed specially because I saw the 7,5 from the user score than normally is pretty fair compared to my film-taste

    It's a movie for anyone who, like Miyazaki himself, can still happily commune with his inner five-year-old.

    Though targeted at tots, Ponyo may appeal most to jaded adults thirsty for wondrous beauty and unpackaged innocence
  3. Don't tell Walt Disney, but Hayao Miyazaki really holds the keys to the magic kingdom.
