The Red Turtle

Released 22 May

The Red Turtle adds to Studio Ghibli's estimable legacy with a beautifully animated effort whose deceptively simple story boasts narrative layers as richly absorbing as its lovely visuals. - Rotten Tomatoes

Through the story of a man shipwrecked on a tropical island inhabited by turtles, crabs and birds, The Red Turtle recounts the milestones in the life of a human being.

Studio Ghibli’s first international coproduction is a ravishing castaway fable that combines beauty, mystery, drama and heartbreak – with not a word spoken.


Dudok de Wit’s compassionate, wistfully beautiful film reminds you that the net output of the nature machine is always life.
