The plot revolves around an Italian World War I ex-fighter ace, now living as a freelance bounty hunter chasing "air pirates" in the Adriatic Sea. However, an unusual curse has transformed him to an anthropomorphic pig. Once called Marco Pagot, he is now known to the world as "Porco Rosso", Italian for "Red Pig".
Yet another great work from Studio Ghibli that brings us that feeling of nostalgia, this time through the beautiful landscapes of the Adriatic Sea, and the memories of long ago from a human transformed into a pig. Sounds silly? Have a look yourself!
