Although once a pilot and war hero for Italy, Porco is now a hunted by this same nation, refusing to go along with the hard right turn.
This tale about a pig humanoid sea pilot is more grounded to a simple story than the engrossing Spirited Away , but the same dream world principles apply making for another immensely entertaining , visually pleasing , animated film.
He seems to be a former human pilot in the Italian army, but he became a pig when he left his army friends alone in a deadly air battle, with Porco as the only survivor.
