NOTE:  Another of Miyazaki's animations that I absolutely love.  The animation, of course, is unique and beautiful to look at and of course the story is nothing less than great.  Touches lightly on environmental awareness regarding pollution in our oceans but not to the extent that it is annoying.  I thought the film was great and is a must watch for kids and adults too.
