The Red Turtle
Dir. Michael Dudok de Wit | France | 81 min | PG
Studio Ghibli teams up with Oscar winner Michael Dudok de Wit to produce a truly unique animated film. A man is shipwrecked on a beautiful but deserted island and must use the habitat in order to survive. Astutely observed by a group of sand crabs, he builds his own raft in order to escape but is constantly thwarted by the cruelly changeable weather and a red turtle with an apparent vendetta. The result of a co-production between Studio Ghibli and Oscar winner Michael Dudok de Wit, this mature, dialogue-free animated film is the work of a true auteur, a brilliant twist on a familiar premise that is packed with an emotional punch.
