Porco Rosso is a 1992 Japanese animated comedy-adventure film written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki. It is based on Hikotei Jidai, a three-part watercolor manga by Miyazaki. The plot revolves around an Italian World War I ex-fighter ace, now living as a freelance bounty hunter chasing "air pirates" in the Adriatic Sea. However, an unusual curse has transformed him into an anthropomorphic pig. Once called Marco Pagot (Marco Rossolini in the American version), he is now known to the world as "Porco Rosso", Italian for "Red Pig". Having successfully defeated the airborne pirates, Porco retires to the Hotel Adriano, which is run by his long-time friend Gina. Porco shot down in his plane by Curtis who proposes to Gina and is turned down. Porco visits his friend Piccolo, his mechanic to repair his plane.. He learns that Piccolo's sons have emigrated to find work elsewhere, and much of the engineering is done by his granddaughter Fio. His plane is restored only to battle Curtis again. The film ends with Fio's narrating that in the end Porco outflies the Italian air force and is never hunted by them again; Fio becomes president of the Piccolo company, which is now an aircraft manufacturer; Curtis becomes a famous actor; the pirates continue to attend the Hotel Adriano; and Fio decides to leave it a secret whether Gina's hope about Porco Rosso was ever realized.
