‘A fable so simple, so pure, it feels as if it has existed for hundreds of years.’
Almost alone in an island paradise.
A man washes up on a sun-kissed desert island that teems with colourful nature. He is preoccupied with leaving, yet finds that each time he tries, a large, powerful turtle urges him to remain on the island’s shores. What can this mysterious creature want from its human companion? This latest animated classic from Studio Ghibli (My Neighbour Totoro, Spirited Away) was ten years in the making with Oscar-winning director Michaël Dudok de Wit. A vivid and moving fable, told through gorgeous imagery and a stirring score.
