Michael Dudok de Wit (1953)

Linda on Cyprus gave me some time in catching up with Game of Thrones and the movie i was looking forward LA TORTUE ROUGE/The red turtle an animation movie by Michael Dudok de Wit, who’s career i have been following since the win of Father and Daughter.

I can not recommend this movie enough. It has a rare quality…it is poetic, dramatic, lifting up and all those qualities combined in a movie made by the Ghibli studio’s with only a sound track to support the story. Ghibli became famous with the Miyazaki movies they made ( the last THE WIND RISES i can also recommend),

but with this de Wit movie they struck gold again and in the combination of these 2 there must be another Golden 3 decades in front of them. Go see THE RED TURTLE and take a look at the books i have on dutch animation at www.ftn-books.com
