My tribute to the past that never was. Porco Rosso is a story of a World War I fighter ace consumed by survivor guilt, he became cursed pig-man. Turn to bounty hunting, taking a potshot at air pirates in the Adriatic sea.

Character development is well done and the film is fill with Japanese's trademarked cuteness and style. But the real heroes are the sea planes. Inspire by real life flying boat and Schneider trophy racer, these plane truly represent the futuristic nostalgia of the interwar era.

Here's Porco plane, the Savoia S.21
