The Red Turtle
The Red Turtle, a dialogue-less animation film from Studio Ghibli, tells the story of a castaway man in an island.

I liked the film for its brilliant images - The way the film portrays the storms in an ocean, approaching rains in a bamboo forest, a group of young turtles entering the sea in batches - there are many scenes that are remarkable for their brilliantly painted frames and accompanying background music. Apart from the images, the narrative of the film, showing the relationship between the man and a "turtle-woman", as he passes the rest of his life in the island, has elements that would make us ponder over Life in general.
