The Red Turtle

I recommend watching the movie The Red Turtle from Studio Ghibli. This animated fantasy film tells the story of a man lost at sea. He becomes stranded on a beautiful yet desolated island. He starts getting used to living in isolation, tormented in his effort to escape the island by a giant red turtle. One day in a fit of rage, he turns the turtle upside down, stomps on it, and kills it. Stricken with guilt, he sits by the dead turtle until morning brings a surprise. Inside the broken turtle lies a woman. Together they create a family together.
