About the Filmmakers
Finding Nemo was produced by Walt Disney Video and directed by Andrew Stanton and Lee Unkrich. Find out more about the film at findingnemo.com.
“Such is the power of this fish story about father and son clownfish who become separated and must struggle to find their way back to each other. Marlon is a loving but neurotic and overprotective father; Nemo is a frustrated young fish who wants to be independent and see the world and resents his father for preventing him from doing so. We see an ocean (read: the world) that is a terrible, heartless, and yet joyous place that we frail fish must confront, as best we can, because there’s no alternative. Though I wish Nemo would win all of the big Oscars (Best Picture, Director, Screenplay), I doubt Academy voters will choose it over its live-action competition. And yet, I will be very surprised, if a better picture — live-action or animated — is released this year. Finding Nemo is truly a find.” – Nicholas Stix, The Critical Critic, Amazon
