Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A fable, beautifully drawn in calm, soothing colors, it doesn't even have dialogue, let alone a throbbing soundtrack. Those sounds you hear are the sounds of silence, and eventually they become hypnotic.
Fresh: Watching "The Red Turtle" ... is like falling into an 80-minute wormhole of spare artistry.
Fresh: Few films have used color and light with such acuity - from the near monochrome of moonlight on a desolate beach to the infinite, illuminated shades of green in a bamboo forest.
Fresh: Although the story is slight, the film leaves viewers with a lasting, haunting impression.
surprisingly good movie
I let my 6 and 8 year old watch this movie. I was surprised how captivated they were watching it even though there was very little dialogue. The story was good...and when it turned into a woman, they asked me how that happened...I just told them it was a make-belive story and just enjoy it...they concluded that God did not want him to be alone on the island...They really enjoyed the movie...and they were REALLY quiet when watching it because they were trying to interpret the emotion of the movie...They thought it was funny how the only dialogue was "Hey"
Does not live up to tradition.
I was let down by this movie. This is below standard for Studio GhiBli brand. I asumed it would be good just becasue it had the name. Not impressed.
very nice movie that is charming to watch. The art is beatiful and it definitly exeeded my expectations. It had an amazing story and it had a very deep meaning. I definitly recommend watching this film.
