What is it about?

This is how MyAnimeList describes this anime (animated) movie:

If you could turn all your memories into a song, what would it resemble?

Between being an exceptional student and taking care of the house alone during her mother’s absence, Asuna Watase’s only distraction is listening to her old crystal radio in her secret mountain hideout.

One day, she accidentally tunes to a mysterious and melancholic melody, different from anything she has ever heard before.

Soon after, an enigmatic boy named Shun saves her from a dangerous creature, unknowingly dragging Asuna on a long journey to a long lost land bound to surpass her very imagination, turning her once melodic life into an intricate requiem.

Porco Rosso – Trailer

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this animated movie:

Master animator Hayao Miyazaki directs this tale about a former World War I flying ace who is also a pig.

Slouching toward middle age, Porco Rosso makes his living by flying about in his bright red bi-plane and fighting sky bandits who prey on cruise ships sailing the Adriatic.

When he’s not engaging in dogfights, this porcine pilot lives on a deserted island retreat.

Porco Rosso was once a strapping young man, but after his entire squadron was wiped out, he was mysteriously transformed into a pig.

Rosso is defeated in a dogfight against a dashing American rival, who has been hired by the dastardly bandits.

With his plane damaged, he finds a repair hangar near Milan run by an aging mechanic named Piccolo, and his spunky granddaughter Fio.

Initially skeptical of her mechanical prowess, Rosso is amazed when she and a legion of local women fix his plane. Soon, Porco Rosso is ready to battle his rival.
