Movie Info

Budding genius Aoyama is only in the 4th grade, but already lives his life like a scientist. When penguins start appearing in his sleepy suburb hundreds of miles from the sea, Aoyama vows to solve the mystery. When he finds the source of the penguins is a woman from his dentist's office, they team up for an unforgettable summer adventure!


Critic Reviews for Penguin Highway

All Critics (5)

This odd little story is based on a book and, for an animated film aimed at pre-teen kids, seems unusually convoluted and protracted. But, as always with Japanese anime, it's visually a delight.

For viewers of Aoyama's age this could be a film that lingers in the mind for years to come, like the half-memory of a strange but pleasant dream.

For almost all ages, this is a heart-warming, imagination-tickling joy - and a film that should put Ishida and Colorido on every anime fan's to-watch list.

...a unique, beautifully entertaining and wholly original film.

The folks at Colorido would do well to ignore any such murmurs and simply create the kinds of films they want. With "Penguin Highway," they're on the right path.
