After a hiatus, I watched an animated movie. Disney and Pixar's "Finding Nemo" is no less spectacular than the earlier "The Lion King", "Toy Story" and "Shrek".

The story centers around two clown fishes - cautious papa fish Marlin and adventurous kid-fish Nemo. The young Nemo, on his first day to school, explores a little too far only to be caught by sea-divers. Marlin on learning that his son is in Sydney, begins his journey in finding his lost son and encounters a host of animals ranging from the sharks, whales, sea-gulls to turtles. On his way he meets Dory, a 'literate' blue fish suffering from dementia which adds humour to the sea adventure. Dory is also a polyglot who can speak the whale's language. She helps Marlin through-out this adventure. The movie is interesting to watch for the young ones (and that includes the 40-year olds)

The clown fish which is found in the Australian Great Barrier Reef, it seems lives symbiotically with the sea anemone. The greatest danger to this fish is from humans. All these information is well brought in the film.
