The art style of “Porcorosso” is characterized by its healing aesthetics, which deeply touches the hearts of the audience. However, what sets it apart is that most of Hayao Miyazaki’s works typically feature young girls as the main characters, whereas “Porcorosso” centers around a middle-aged man with a round face and a bulky physique. The Porcorosso captures the audience’s love through his integrity, kindness, bravery, and depth of emotion, earning him the title of the most handsome pig character on the screen, as described by fans of the film.
This movie completely redefines the concept of attractiveness. The contrasting portrayal of the outward appearance of the Porcorosso and his internal heroism and knightly spirit further highlights his charm. The music and visuals in the film complement each other perfectly, with the collaboration between Hayao Miyazaki and Joe Hisaishi creating ethereal and melodic tunes that beautifully depict the red pig’s sky adventures and romantic love story. It will undoubtedly be a breathtaking audiovisual experience on the big screen.
In Hayao Miyazaki’s animations, kindness and childlike wonder are the most iconic styles. In “Porcorosso”, there are no truly evil characters. Both the protagonists and antagonists showcase their inner kindness and the protection of their cherished beliefs. Even characters like air pirates, typically considered as negative, win the love of adorable children because of their inherent goodness. This is the charm of Hayao Miyazaki. Amidst the hustle and bustle of a busy city, “Porcorosso” always manages to bring a moment of tranquility.
“Porcorosso” has a lighthearted and joyful plot, yet it also involves deep contemplation. Director Hayao Miyazaki uses a healing art style to tell a story of both heaviness and freedom, of profound and beautiful love. It blends a celebration of independent women and the touching friendships amidst the fiery backdrop of war. In “Porcorosso”, the men are heroic and lively, while the women are incredibly charismatic. Despite enduring the brutality of war and facing various hardships, even transforming into pigs, they continue to wholeheartedly embrace and enjoy life.
The reason why the Porcorosso transforms into a pig and whether the ending is satisfactory is a topic that sparks discussion. It is a fairy tale crafted for adults, with an underlying anti-war message beneath the guise of love. There is a hint of sadness in the Porcorosso’s smile, yet it still imbues the audience with the courage and hope to love life. As one online commenter aptly put it, “Even in the face of a harsh world, we should embrace the beauty in life, no longer avoiding emotions and responsibilities. May we all be like Marco, staying true to ourselves and unafraid of societal prejudices.”
In that era of chaos and conflict, all the goodness of justice, righteousness, and love were disregarded by human greed and aggression. As people cheered for the passing tanks on the streets of Rome, they rarely paused to reflect on the reasons for their own battles or consider how to end the cycle of violence. Only Pulloke, the former ace pilot of the empire, distanced himself from the clamor of the crowds and observed with a cool gaze. In the eyes of the world, he became a stubborn and aloof loner, labeled as a defiant pig. By refusing to continue being a killing machine in the hands of dictators, he chose to exile himself in the vast Adriatic Sea and became a solitary bounty hunter. Behind this solitude lies his disappointment in humanity and a last stubborn insistence on his own kindness.
The youth are unfamiliar with the taste of sorrow, but as they enter middle age and face the trivialities and helplessness of life, they come to realize that the lonely pig, who can still soar freely, lives a more authentic and carefree existence than most of us.
