Porco Rosso

Porco Rosso - (紅の豚 Kurenai no buta), is a 1992 anime film about an Italian World War I fighter ace now living as a freelance bounty hunter against "Air Pirates" in the Adriatic Sea. The man has been cursed, and has the head of a pig.

This was originally planned as an in-flight movie for JAL based on Miyazaki's Manga The Age of the flying Boat, but production was overshadowed by the civil war in Yugoslavia which prompted a more serious tone of the movie.


Direction, Original Story & Screenplay: Miyazaki Hayao
Music: Joe Hisaishi Production: Studio Ghibli
