Porco Rosso

1992 PG 1h 33m DVD
  • Overview
  • Details
  • Cast
After witnessing the horrendous deaths of his fellow pilots in action during World War I, an Italian pilot transforms into Porco Rosso, a being that's part man, part pig. Under this confounding spell, Porco Rosso perseveres by taking odd jobs. He manages to romance the ladies (humans, not sows!) and rescue people in distress -- all while looking for a way out of his porcine predicament. Hayao Miyazaki directs this oddly compelling anime.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this animated fighter pilot-themed movie from renowned Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki is packed with cartoonish violence including WWI-era airplane battles and machine gun fights. Characters smoke and drink and there is some romance and references to womanizing threaded through the plot. Underneath the deceptively simple story is a complex exploration of the ravages of war on those who fight.

Sexual Content

One female character is a sultry nightclub singer and there is some romantic attraction between her and some male characters.

Violence

There are lots of cartoonish airplane dogfights in this film, as well as machine gun fights, grenades, and explosions. There is also a lengthy fist fight between two of the main characters.

Language

A few occasions of "hell" and "damn."

Social Behavior

Challenges the traditional ideas of war heroism. Warfare is portrayed in an unglamorous, complex manner.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Porco Rosso is seen drinking wine, and often has a cigar in his mouth. There are also bar scenes where characters drink and smoke.
