Thru the story of a man shipwrecked on a tropical island inhabited by turtles, crabs and birds. Recounts the milestones in the life of human
French/Japanese fable “The Red Turtle” is one of those rare animated movies that transports you to a different setting without demanding that you focus on narrative or character development. Instead, viewers are encouraged to fall in love with an environment, specifically a small tropical island on which a nondescript, mute castaway inexplicably finds himself shipwrecked. This focus on setting over narrative is crucial since “The Red Turtle” follows the normalization of one man’s romance with nature. Because this is a fable, the above-mentioned romance is quite literal: our nameless castaway falls in love with a shapeshifting turtle that transforms into a beautiful naked woman. He also inevitably stops trying to escape his surroundings, and starts to build a home on the island.
