The Red Turtle (2016 France/Belgium/Japan) Cert. PG

Director: Michael Dudok de Wit        
Stars: Emmanuel Garijo, Tom Hudson, Baptiste Goy

 

 

A man is shipwrecked on a tropical island, with only birds and sea creatures for company.

 

 

Tired and hungry, he strives to survive and sail away on a home-made raft – until an encounter with a red turtle changes the course of his life…

This remarkable and mature animation, made in collaboration with the legendary Studio Ghibli, casts an enchanting spell as it charts the relationship between man and environment.

While not a ‘silent’ movie, the film is essentially dialogue free – “A wordless wonder” (Daily Telegraph).

News Update 02 July 2017

Stunningly beautiful animation contrasts with moving romance…….

The Red Turtle on Tuesday, 19:30, gives cinema-goers another chance to appreciate the skills of the celebrated animé makers at Studio Ghibli combining for the first time with a European director, Dutch animator Michael Dudok de Wit. Our audience at yesterday’s screening found this remarkable dialogue-free film an absorbing, touching, and very beautiful exposé of the cycle of life. Both dramatic and charming, it celebrates the beauty of nature with masterful images creating a magic spell all its own…

Perhaps you missed the earlier performances last month of Their Finest, starring Gemma Arterton and Bill Nighy. If so, there’s a repeat showing on 5 July at 19:30. It’s also billed as our Babes in Arms screening on 11 July at 11:00. The film conveys a sense of depth along with some humour but it’s ultimately an entertaining, romantic and touching tribute to the role of working women – particularly pertinent to the world of cinema.
