Pretty good story. Though it sort of seems incomplete. The movie never talks about the Porco Rosso's curse nor resolves the curse. The end of the plot summary of Wikipedia said this: "However, a red plane can be seen at the other end of Gina's island." I'm not sure how I missed that... I'll have to watch the end seen again...

Instant Comment:
Haha, the new engine reads Ghibli. [Though apparently that's where the name was first from.]

Summary:
Slouching towards middle age, Porco Rosso makes his living by flying about in his red bi-plane and fighting sky bandits who prey on cruise ships sailing the Adriatic. When he's not engaging in dog fights, this pilot lives on a deserted island retreat. Porco was once a strapping young man, but after his entire squardron is wiped out, he is mysteriously transformed into a pig.
