    Great animation

    Posted .

    I had a huge desire to see this movie ever since I first learned about it last year. Knowing that Studio Ghibli produced it got me very excited, and I had to buy the blu-ray. The style of animation combined with the style of storytelling make for an interesting viewing experience. All Studio Ghibli fans need to watch this.

    Red Turtle

    |
    Posted .

    This was a great movie. It was a Sony Pictures film based off the Studio Ghibli films before it that are owned in part by Disney. This is a very visually stunning movie with almost no audio dialogue aside from music and background noise. But with that in mind the movie worked and it sounds stunning.

    Don't Hide in Your Shell

    The Red Turtle is an extraordinary film, a quintessential example of both cinema- and animation-as-art that confidently, gracefully, and definitively straddles that very delicate and very desirable magical line between purpose, presentation, and entertainment value. The film is unique, visionary in its own right, and wide open for interpretation with no wrong serious answers. It will dazzle as it plays and resonate long after it ends.

    Unspoken Mysticism

    |
    Posted .

    Language is not a factor in this one man's stranded survival. Although this is an animated film, I question that a child would remain enthralled for one man's silent solo journey or grasp the contemplations and interpretations inherent in the red turtle's significance. However, for a patient adult willing to take a chance on a meditative animated story that reflects on surviving solitude, this might be the project designed for you.

    Relatively Silent Film

    This is very much a silent film, so our kids did not get it as much as some of the other anime films we have purchased. Regardless, my husband and I found it a beautiful, loving story. Maybe not the best for younger kids, but we really enjoyed the plotline.

    Just about as perfect as a Movie can be

    I'm tempted to say that words cannot describe this movie, in which no real words are spoken. A man is a castaway on an island, he encounters a red sea turtle, then a woman...later the two have a son. A simple fable so beautifully animated that you wish you could go there. This is one those where you keep telling people "You gotta see this movie!".

    Very Unique Story, Very Compelling Drama!

    |
    Posted .

    This one was a unique piece for studio Ghibili, not directed by any of their traditional creator's/director's. None the less a very moving story and brought times of happiness and times of sadness and the drama how people can survive in times of trial and suffering and how in those times you can actually be saved from yourself.

    No really it is a classic, if you like Art, hand drawn animation and stories told with out saying buy one word with deep meaning this is a very moving movie.

    A great movie, more for adults

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this movie and watched it with my kids. It was a great movie, with very great animation, however it seemed a bit more for the adults. It doesn't have any words in it, which is okay, but makes it harder for kids to stay focused and pay attention. Beautiful storyline though and very thoughtful.

    Great Animation

    Possibly one of the most beautifully poetic films; this movie doesn't require any dialogue to convey powerful emotions and an intriguing story. The over-arching simplicity of everything in this film, from the character designs to the background paintings, beautifully captures the essence of life in all of it's states.

    Great movie!

    This film is abstract, artsy and thought provoking. There’s no dialogue and some of the concepts bring you to question the meaning. I would recommend this movie to the type of person who could appreciate staring at art.

    I bought this one for my friend who LOVES turtles. She's also a Studio Ghibli fan and I mean, what would be a better gift? We watched it that night and it was so pretty. A little slow paced with some action in there. Good for any audience!

    A different movie from Studio Ghibli...

    |
    Posted .

    Studio Ghibli is known for their masterful Japanese Anime. This is a European animation where there is no spoken roles... A man is stranded on an island and every time he tries to leave it, a supernatural force prevents his departure. He comes across a giant red turtle and forms a bond for the rest of his life....

    Red Turtle

    Posted .

    One of the calmest cinema experiences ever, Red Turtle carries existentialism into the realms of nature throughout this film. I fell asleep watching the first two times viewing and was truly left with a hope for life on earth by the time I saw the finish.

    Studio Ghibli are back! A beautifully rendered no dialogue animated feast. The story focuses on a young man who is shipwrecked on an island and his struggle for survival with only a red turtle for company. A thoroughly engaging and luscious tale.

    Gentle yet moving animation

    Beautiful artwork and a lovely story that brings to mind some of the Celtic myths of the silky, yet it is a red turtle. The directors commentary illuminates some of the production decisions and gives scope to this artistic endeavor. Really enjoyed this film.

    Good story and visually stunning animation. A movie with little dialog which fits well with the story. You feel the emotion of the characters thru their expression and actions. A worth watching film.
