Finding Nemo

Over coffee and popcorn with a friend this week I saw Finding Nemo for the first time. Is this a simple children's film or an allegory upon the totality of existence? Check with Carl Jung or Joseph Campbell, but I loved it.

It was pleasantly surprising to find Australia featured so prominently. Dory is such a sweet character, she is so self-effacing, full of faith and loyalty. This makes her a winner. As I have to visit a dentist soon, this aspect of the film was a little discouraging.

I learnt what a supraesophageal ganglion is. You never know when that kind of information could come in handy.

Surely we can all speak whale if we try.
