TEN years after it was first released, Pixar’s hugely entertaining comedy swims back into cinemas in the 3D format.
Marlin (voiced by Albert Brooks) is a neurotic clownfish who has never recovered emotionally from a barracuda attack, which claimed the lives of his wife and all but one of his unborn children.
When his one surviving son, Nemo (Alexander Gould), is plucked from the Great Barrier Reef by a diver and rehoused in a fish tank in a dentist’s waiting room, Marlin embarks on an epic adventure to bring the youngster home.
The clownfish is aided by a friendly blue tang called Dory (Ellen DeGeneres), who suffers from short-term memory loss,travelling through shark-infested waters to be reunited with his boy.
Meanwhile, Nemo hatches a daring escape from the crowded aquarium with the help of the other residents, including a Moorish Idol called Gill (Willem Dafoe), a hygiene-obsessed shrimp called Jacques (Joe Ranft) and a starfish called Peach (Allison Janney).
