Help! I'm a Fish

Director: Stefan Fjeldmark, Michael Hegner
Year: 2000
Stars: Alan Rickman, Terry Jones, Pil Neja, Mortten Kern Nielsen, Sebastian Jessen (voices)

This seemed like a reasonable thing to want to watch on a Saturday morning to me. It follows the story of a brother and sister and their cousin, who find a professor and then get turned into fish. They have to find the potion within 48 hours to make sure they can become human again.

Very definitely a children's film, it is nevertheless enjoyable and fun to watch. And if you look hard enough, you can even see some allegories for "evil fascism" in there. Nothing amazing, but a perfectly acceptable Saturday morning distraction. And I still love the title.

Rating: 3 out of 5

About Me

My photo
I live in Bristol with my husband Dan (who I married in July 2007), my son Joe (born 2012) and daughter Jess (born 2015). I work at UWE (the University of the West of England) in Bristol as a Research and Open Access Librarian. I'm orginally from Exeter, so moving back to Bristol is a bit like coming home - especially as I studied for my undergraduate degree here (also at UWE). I love travelling and movies, although I get to do a lot less of both since the birth of our children. Although we have still managed to fit in holidays to the Isles of Scilly, Chamonix and a summer in California since Joe was born.
