Déjà responsable des excellents Toy Story, A Bugs Life et Monsters, Inc. , les studios danimation Pixar récidivent avec Trouver Nemo, fable aquatique animée avec talent par Andrew Stanton.
Après le décès de sa compagne, Marlin le poisson clown a bien du mal à laisser leur rejeton Nemo accéder à lindépendance. Convaincu par les supplications du petit, il le laisse pourtant aller à lécole. Mais Nemo se fait bien vite capturer par un plongeur et atterrit dans laquarium dun dentiste. Pendant quil fomente des plans dévasion avec ses camarades sous verre, Marlin, lui, va parcourir les fonds marins pour retrouver son fils, en compagnie de Dory, une dame poisson bleue, souffrant damnésie instantanée.
Prouvant encore une fois leur maîtrise technique, les studios Pixar offrent avec Trouver Nemo un conte en forme de quête à la structure classique mais dont lefficacité nest plus à démontrer. Et même sil lui manque la jolie ironie qui caractérisait Monsters, Inc., le film reste tout de même un divertissement dassez haute qualité, aussi drôle (grâce à Dory ou aux avides mouettes, notamment) quémouvant. En outre, le double DVD contient toutes sortes de bonus, comme le court métrage animé Bibelot, des jeux de charade, un making-of et un documentaire de Jean-Michel Cousteau, qui suffiront à réussir complètement cette plongée dans locéan.

Finding Nemo arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.78:1 encode. This was Pixar’s fifth film. The transfer is simply perfect, and is utterly jaw-dropping. Pastel tropical colours highlight the exotic, and incredibly detailed, locations that seem to go on forever, until the ocean's depth and darkness swallows all visible light. Certain textures, particularly the rusty red metal buoy and the metal pulley on the fishing boat, appear as photo realistic. While Finding Nemo may not have the textural complexities of Pixar's newer work, the look of the underwater world is oh so realistic. The vibrant colours of different corals, sea anemones and fish simply pop off the screen. Blacks are deep and inky. The part from the beginning of the film, seeing about realistic underwater looks like to Nemo going to school showing off various colourful plants and creatures is a first-class demo material. The whole transfer is simply amazing and magnificent. (5/5)
Finding Nemo - 3D premieres on blu ray with a stunning MVC MPEG-4 encode framed in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio. In addition to a perfect transfer and conversion, this 3D version gives us a totally immersive, first-class experience. While some of the film's water textures show their technological age when compared to their newer films, overall Finding Nemo remains a boldly realized, intricate, and simply stunning universe. There is so much detail, exotic locations, and tropical colours that make CGI animated films perfect HD showcases. Another thing I love about Pixar films is how certain textures, particularly the rusty red metal buoy and the metal pulley on the fishing boat, appear as photo realistic.Read more ›
What's It About?
Nemo is a little fish with a very overly protective dad. Nemo is fishnapped by some humans, which causes his dad to swim off in hot pursuit. Along the way he befreinds a forgetful fish named Dory who attempts to help him on his quest. Much craziness ensues, while as Nemo is plotting his own escape. What will happen? Will a happy ending be in the offing?
Is Ellen The Greatest?
Why, yes she is. Ellen DeGeneres is one of the most amazing voice talents to ever grace the Pixar soundbooth. Every line she utters, every emotions she transmits, brings the laughs and the love right to your heart. How much is scripted and how much she is riffing on, we might never know, but it all is gold.
Can You Speak Whale?
When Dory/Ellen decides to communicate with a Whale in order to secure help for their cause, you will literally convulse with laughter. In fact, let me try to emulate that scene here. "Heeeelllllo!!! Hhhooooowww aaarrrreeee yyyyyouu, haaavvvvvvvviiiiinnggg aaa nnniiiiccceee daaaaayyyy???????" Okay, that sucked big time. Just watch that part of Finding Nemo and ignore my horrid interpretation. Please.
So, this Easter, sometime between all those tasty meals and gobbling down whack-loads of chocolate the Bunny leaves for you, pop Finding Nemo in to your dvd player. And remember to shout "MINE!" a lot.

PIXAR ANIMATION CLASSIC SHORT "KNICK KNACK": The animation short shown in theaters before FN, this 3:50 minute short tells the tale of a snowman in a snowglobe that wants to get out. My son remembered it and asked to watch that first before I'd even popped the DVD in.
EXTRAS FOR ADULTS: Usually, kids aren't interested in the "making of" extras, or "filmaker's visual commentary", so these are pretty much here for grown ups. Oh yeah- there's,also deleted scenes.Read more ›
