Nearly ten years in the making, La tortue rouge is a touching animated tale, sublime in its naturalism. A shipwrecked man struggles to survive on a deserted tropical island teeming with turtles, crabs and birds. His attempts to build a raft are thwarted by a red tortoise. An award winner at Un Certain Regard, La tortue rouge is the first collaboration between Ghibli Studios and an outside artist, Dutch animator Michael Dudok de Wit. The break with tradition pays off: this is a uniquely beautiful and moving film.
