Synopsis

A young boy named Sosuke rescues a goldfish named Ponyo, and they embark on a fantastic journey of friendship and discovery before Ponyo's father, a powerful sorcerer, forces her to return to her home in the sea. But Ponyo's desire to be human upsets the delicate balance of nature and triggers a gigantic storm. Only Ponyo's mother, a beautiful sea goddess, can restore nature's balance and make Ponyo's dreams come true.

3 words describe this movie: Death By Cuteness [Note: This review is based off of the Japanese version, not the Disney dubbed one!]

If you thought Totoro was cute, you ain't seen nothing yet. Ponyo is the cutest little...fish-girl ever. The movie is loosely based on "The Little Mermaid," but don't think Disney. Think instead of when you were a kid, and the world was brighter, magical, full of wonder and delight. Those are the feelings which describe what happens when you enter the world of Miyazaki.

Story - Although there's more story to Ponyo than your average Miyazaki film (eg: Totoro again), the film is geared read more

Recommendations

Both stories involve a friendship between a kind-hearted human and an innocent fish (taking on the appearance of a human). Ponyo is about an innocent love between two children, where Tsuritama is about creating friendships and working hard to understand each other.
Both are movies from Hayao Miyazaki, and both are feelgood movies with a touching story and ending.

"Gake no Ue no Ponyo (崖の上のポニョ)" by Fujioka Fujimaki and Nozomi Ōhashi
