BIG FISH & BEGONIA COMES TO UK AND IRISH CINEMAS
Dive into a spirit world beyond the sea with BIG FISH & BEGONIA, the beautifully animated Chinese epic coming to cinemas this spring! The film will screen in selected cinemas across the UK and Ireland on Wednesday 18th April.
Twelve years in the making, artful anime feature BIG FISH & BEGONIA is a visually stunning cinematic adventure that captures the unique aesthetics, mystique and rich cultural traditions of ancient China. The film entwines new storytelling, mythical legends and lyrical characters from notable Chinese classics In Search of the Supernatural, The Classic of Mountains and Seas, and Daoist classic Zhuangzi.
“Our dream is to make an animated film that touches people’s hearts and inspires people with love and faith” said writer/director Xuan Liang.
Already a great box-office success overseas, BIG FISH & BEGONIA is China’s foremost anime feature film. Many animation enthusiasts, artists and critics alike have heralded BIG FISH & BEGONIA’s artistic achievement as the forefront of the burgeoning Chinese animation industry. This highly-anticipated movie premiered in competition at Annecy International Animation Film Festival, BFI London Film Festival, and has been selected to screen at New York International Children’s Film Festival in February 2018.
“We are incredibly proud to be bringing this beautiful epic to the big screen in the UK and Ireland,” said Andrew Hewson, Manga Entertainment’s Marketing Manager. “Big Fish & Begonia is a gorgeous fantasy adventure that will transport you right back to when you first watched a Studio Ghibli or Disney film – it is that distinctive and powerful! This is a must-see for all animation fans!”

From ancient Chinese legends comes a beautiful tale of love and sacrifice.
In a world within our world, yet unseen by any human, the beings there control time and tide and the changing of the seasons. On the day Chun turns sixteen, she is transformed into a dolphin to explore the human world. She is rescued from a vortex by a human boy at the cost of his own life. Chun is so moved by the boy’s kindness and courage that she decides to give him life again. But to do this, she must protect the boy’s soul, a tiny fish, and nurture it to grow. Through adventure and sacrifice, love grows, yet now she must release him back to the sea, back to life in the human world.
