Finding Nemo Special

Teruko Okabe 2004/01/22



In the movie “Finding Nemo,” Marlin, a clownfish, lives in the Great Barrier Reef with his wife Coral and their hundreds of eggs. A barracuda attacks them, killing Coral and all but one of their eggs, Nemo. From that day on, Marlin becomes overprotective of Nemo.

On Nemo’s first day of school, Marlin accompanies him but embarrasses him in front of his classmates. To prove himself to his dad and friends, Nemo touches a boat in the distance and is captured by scuba divers.

Marlin sets out to find Nemo but is afraid of everything. While searching for clues about where Nemo could be, he meets a forgetful blue tang named Dory who offers to help him. Together they encounter sharks who have pledged not to eat fish anymore and turtles who ride the East Australian Current (EAC). After many obstacles and setbacks, they finally arrive at the dentist’s office where Nemo is being kept in a fish tank.

Nemo tries to escape with the help of the other fish in the tank but fails each time. Meanwhile, Marlin and Dory devise a plan to get into the office through the plumbing system.

After many close calls with danger including an attack by an anglerfish and nearly getting caught by a group of seagulls, they finally rescue Nemo. However, during their escape, Dory gets trapped in a fishing net that takes her away from Marlin and Nemo.

Desperate to find Dory again, Marlin enlists the help of Crush and his son Squirt who take them on another ride on the EAC. They eventually find Dory tangled up in fishing nets along with many other fish who have been captured by humans.

With some quick thinking from all three friends as well as some assistance from Nigel the pelican and several other sea creatures they met along their journey, they are able to free all the captured fish. Nemo, Marlin, and Dory finally make it back home to the Great Barrier Reef where Nemo reunites with his classmates.

The movie ends with Marlin learning to let go of his overprotectiveness and allowing Nemo more freedom while Dory’s memory is somewhat restored, allowing her to remember her new friends.




Released in 2003, Finding Nemo is a timeless animation that has captured the hearts of audiences young and old. Produced by Pixar Animation Studios and directed by Andrew Stanton, this movie tells the story of a clownfish named Marlin who embarks on a perilous journey to find his lost son Nemo, who has been taken away by humans.

One of the most impressive aspects of Finding Nemo is its stunning visual effects. The underwater world is beautifully rendered, with vibrant colors and intricate details that make it seem like a real underwater adventure. The animation team clearly put a lot of effort into making sure every detail was perfect, from the way the coral sways in the current to the schools of fish swimming through the water.

But what really makes this movie stand out is its heartwarming story. On one hand, it’s an epic adventure tale filled with danger and suspense as Marlin faces sharks, jellyfish, and other obstacles on his quest to find his son. But on the other hand, it’s an emotional story about love, loss, and family that will tug at your heartstrings.

Central to this story is Marlin’s relationship with his son Nemo. After losing his wife and all but one of their eggs during a barracuda attack at the beginning of the movie, Marlin becomes overprotective of Nemo - who was born with a malformed fin - not wanting him to take any risks or explore beyond their coral reef home. This leads to conflict between father and son when Nemo rebels against his father’s restrictions and swims into open water where he gets caught by divers.

Alongside Marlin’s journey across the ocean to rescue his son are countless memorable moments and characters that have become iconic over time. There’s Dory (voiced brilliantly by Ellen DeGeneres) who helps Marlin find Nemo despite her short-term memory loss, the friendly but forgetful sharks who try to overcome their addiction to eating fish, and the hilarious seagulls who chant “Mine! Mine! Mine!” as they squabble over food scraps.

Finding Nemo isn’t just a movie for children, though kids will undoubtedly love it. It’s a movie that transcends age groups with its universal themes of family, love, and adventure. It has great voice acting by all involved, especially Albert Brooks as Marlin and Ellen DeGeneres as Dory. The music by Thomas Newman is also worth mentioning as it perfectly captures the mood of each scene.

In conclusion, Finding Nemo is a true masterpiece that deserves all the accolades it has received over the years. It’s an animated adventure filled with stunning visuals, memorable characters and a touching story that will make you laugh and cry. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a heartwarming tale that will stay with them long after the credits roll.

As a child, I was moved by the movie “The Bad News Bears Go to Japan” where Japanese professional baseball players and American actors performed in front of a large audience. This made me fall in love with the movie. This blog is my review of the movie that I actually saw. Please use it as a reference when renting movies.

For a long time, in between housework,
I would go to the movie theater to watch films and then write reviews of the movies in a diary which I stored away in a closet.
When I showed these reviews to Azesan, he suggested turning them into a website.
I am grateful for this wonderful opportunity. I may be nearing the end of my life, but if reading my reviews can move the hearts of younger people,
I think that would be wonderful.
It may even become a catalyst for various realizations and changes in their lives moving forward.
