Dot, there is a way to make Tonga return to the sea.
She'll return if Moby Dick tells her.
Moby Dick? The White Whale?
But Moby Dick's not true. He's in a story.
He might be in a story, but he's still true. He rules all the seas. He's old and very wise.
Well, let's ask. Come on.
Wait. He's very hard to find.
Does he know about Tonga?

An alert to some of the biggest problems caused by human race
I never heard of this movie before. However, an Internet friend of mine pointed me in the direction of this and I thank him for that. Now that I've watched it, a small opinion.
It's not that the movie is fabulous (in my opinion) but there are many good things about it. For example, it mixes animation and live-action, even if most animated characters could be better drawn at my point of view. Nevertheless, the result is interesting: real seas and waters, a real city, real buildings and cartoon walking there like real people.
This film is also a good alert to global problems caused by humans such as garbage thrown to the oceans and environment, pollution and whale hunting.
The story of this film has a sad side, which is precisely any moment with the whale Tonga, who is at the sea hoping to die but doesn't really want to die. However, the girl Dot, her dolphin pal Nelson and some local boys do their best to help the whale and they don't stop until they're sure the whale is in safety.
I also liked the soundtrack, it is beautiful and has some good messages about preserving the oceans.
One final word about the sharks. It's funny how the dolphin confronts them and how they don't dare to mess with the dolphin. They seem to be more of a comical relief than actually dangerous sharks.
