In the skies over the Adriatic in the 1920s, the greatest fighter ace is... a pig? 

Miyazaki's nonchalant hero shuns society and his own courageous past, but still inspires those around him. Echoing Powell and Pressburger’s classic A Matter of Life and Death, and with stunning fantasy interlude drawn from Roald Dahl's aviation stories, Porco Rosso includes some ravishing flight scenes, allowing Miyazaki to indulge his love for vintage aircraft.

Ostensibly a romantic comedy, the film makes an effective argument for the place of storybook heroes in a darkening world, reminding us that grown-ups need their dreams as much as children.

1992 Dir. Hayao Miyazaki 102 min.
