HAM! HAM! (See the movie to understand)
What was the movie about?
The movie is about a 5-year old boy who finds a magical goldfish princess. The 5-year old is forced to put the fish back in the water. The fish then tries to get back on land as a human and stumbles upon her father's elixir, triggering a chain reaction of events almost flooding the Earth.

What I thought about the movie.
I thought the movie was very beautiful, especially with the water scenes. I can't wait for you to see it (see my question below).

What I learned about making films.
In this Studio Ghibli film I learned that water can really make your movie beautiful. I loved all the fish and beautiful water creatures the way they flowed as they were swimming.

Why I think other kids should see this film.
I think other kids should see this movie because it's really great AND it's good for 5-year olds to see, too! Also, because this movie is recent. This is one Studio Ghibli movie that actually made it to the theater here in the United States. Plus, it's inspired by The Little Mermaid.

Q: When you see the movie, please comment back here and tell me what do you think about the water scenes? 
This meal was in the movie. We made it at home at it was AWESOME!

All of these Studio Ghibli movies can be found at your local library or, sometimes, on NetFlix.

I just wanted to thank you for this review. I saw the movie this weekend and it was wonderful! You are right about the water and how magical he made it.
