Miyazaki presents take on 'Little Mermaid'

Miyazaki presents take on 'Little Mermaid'

Here is the scoop

Oscar-winning animator Hayao Miyazaki foregoes computer graphics and returns to the pencil and crayon for his latest film, an East-meets-West nod to Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid.  Already a hit in Japan, Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea opened Sunday at the Venice Film Festival, where it's competing for the coveted Golden Lion. Ponyo tells the story of a goldfish who longs to become a girl after getting a glimpse of the human world when she's rescued from a jam jar by Sosuke, a 5-year-old boy who lives on a cliff above the sea. As in The Little Mermaid, Ponyo's transformation is opposed by her father, an underwater sorcerer who once was human, and she must make a sacrifice, in this case her magical powers, to become human
