Movie Info

In Italy in the 1930s, sky pirates in biplanes terrorize wealthy cruise ships as they sail the Adriatic Sea. The only pilot brave enough to stop the scourge is the mysterious Porco Rosso (Shuichiro Moriyama), a former World War I flying ace who was somehow turned into a pig during the war. As he prepares to battle the pirate crew's American ace, Porco Rosso enlists the help of spunky girl mechanic Fio Piccolo (Akemi Okamura) and his longtime friend Madame Gina (Tokiko Kato).

Audience Reviews for Porco Rosso (Kurenai no buta)

  • Nov 26, 2013
    Miyazaki indulges himself in his passion for seaplanes with this very enjoyable project of most personal interest, an always entertaining film that benefits from a beautiful soundtrack, a spot-on sense of humor and, even better, a lot of heart.

    Miyazaki's loving tribute to early aviation. The story is more male-oriented, straightforward, and based in reality (set between the two World Wars) than some of his other works, but still retains that vintage Miyazaki magical feel that we all know and love. The title anthropomorphic pig (who ladies strangely fawn over) and his sidekick, a young mechanic girl named Fio, make for a greatly fun duo and play off each other nicely. Miyazaki really demonstrates his love for planes and there is a breathtaking fantasy sequence involving a fleet of planes flying above the clouds that alone makes the film worth a one-time viewing. It's not as profound as some of his other works like 'Spirited Away' but it still works wonderfully as a nice undemanding action/adventure, although it is admittedly far from his best work. The first hour of the film was excellent but the climax was pretty weak (sinfully teasing at an epic airplane fleet battle that never takes place) and the closing epilogue narration felt extremely rushed (also contains a gimmicky "The end?" line that you'd think Miyazaki would be above at doing). Despite a weak ending, 'Porco Rosso' remains a quality effort from the master himself.

    1 of the best Studio Ghibli movies and one of the most unseen as well. Porco Rosso has every genre in film making rolled into 1 in this. Amazing flight sequences, funny humor, fast paced action, romance, and as always with Miyazaki movies, a heart filled moral. A most see.

    In spite of having poor characterizations and some bad lines, Porco Rosso is a fun, often humorous, well scored, and exciting film.
