Life along the Great Barrier Reef is full of dangers when you're a tiny clown fish. And for Marlin, a single parent determined to protect his only son, Nemo, there are constant fears and anxieties. When Nemo defies his father and swims beyond the reef to investigate a boat, he is suddenly scooped up by a diver as Marlin helplessly watches.
As the frantic Marlin sets off in search of his son he bumps into Dory, an agreeable blue tang who offers to help. The only problem is that Dory has severe short-term memory loss and forgets things as quickly as they happen. Together, this aquatic odd couple set out on an impossible mission.
Meanwhile, in a dentist's office overlooking Sydney Harbour, Nemo has landed in a fish tank that is home to a colourful group of characters. Their leader is a tough moorish idol named Gill, who also came from the ocean and dreams of one day returning. When Nemo is officially initiated into the gang, he rekindles Gill's dormant desire to escape.
On their quest Marlin and Dory battle a trio of sharks; a deadly angler fish; and a tangled forest of jellyfish. They also encounter a blue whale, surf the ocean currents with a herd of hip sea turtles, and fend off an attack by ravenous seagulls, as they make their way to Sydney Harbour.
When word of Marlin and Dory's ocean adventures gets back to Nemo, he is so thrilled to learn of his father's search for him that he becomes motivated to move forward with a daring escape plan of his own.
What the critics are saying:"Managing to move without falling into the jaws of sentimentality, the picture thrills and frightens too. A paean to parenthood and superb for sprogs, it's a perfect piece of storytelling."- Nev Pierce, BBCi"(to) adults who do not have children as an excuse, I can say that "Finding Nemo" is a pleasure for grown-ups."- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times"...combining razor-sharp comic writing with note-perfect vocal performances and state of the art animation to produce the best family comedy of the year."- Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
A largely well-made, strongly acted and enjoyable enough war film, undone by some seriously half-hearted writing. Read More »
