Book cinema tickets for The Red Turtle


Although there is no dialogue, the big questions this exquisite film asks - about ambition, acceptance and the beauty of companionship - ring loud in every frame. A man is shipwrecked on a tropical island inhabited by turtles, crabs and birds. When he builds a wooden raft, he is confronted by the titular turtle.

The story then follows the milestones in his life on the island which include meeting a woman and starting a family. London-based Dutch animator Michaël Dudok de Wit co-wrote the story for this first international co-production for Japanese animation house Studio Ghibli.
