Porco Rosso [* * * * * *]

This is a fabulous movie about a flying pig (he's a human under a curse) and his refusal to take part in the WWII. The story is complex and very interesting - a very Casablanca kind of feel to it. Probably the wonderful music.

Lol, I love this! When one of his old airforce friends asks him to avoid arrest for being unpatriotic by serving in the italian airforce again, he says, "I'd rather be a pig than a fascist." Haha! A nice play on the 'fascist pig' insult.:)
The entire movie is very authentic in detail to the time of Mussolini. What a great way to learn history for kids.:)

Well worth a watch!
