Plot Ponyo (Cyrus), half-human, half-fish, escapes from her father, marine lord Fujimoto (Neeson), and is adopted by young Sosuke (Jonas). But with the balance of the elements thrown askew, the natural world begins to go wonky. Verdict Miyazaki’s back, and still a force of nature. A weird, wonderful aquatic romp, Ponyo is also a meditation on the state of this blue planet. Catch it.
