Anna hasn't a friend in the world—until she meets Marnie among the sand dunes. But Marnie isn't all she seems...

An atmospheric ghost story with truths to tell about friendship, families and loneliness. Anna lives with foster parents, a misfit with no friends, always on the outside of things. Then she is sent to Norfolk to stay with old Mr. and Mrs. Pegg, where she runs wild on the sand dunes and around the water. There is a house, the Marsh House, which she feels she recognizes—and she soon meets a strange little girl called Marnie, who becomes Anna's first ever friend. Then one day, Marnie vanishes.

A new family, the Lindsays, move into the Marsh House. Having learnt so much from Marnie about friendship, Anna makes firm friends with the Lindsays—and learns some strange truths about Marnie, who was not all she seemed...

These stories share the same warmth despite being sad. In both movies one of the main characters is sickly and keeps his/her distance from other people until he/she meets someone that helps him/her deal with the difficult situation and emotions. Both movies have a nice mixture of japanese and english themes (such as architechture and music) as they are based on English novels.

Same studio, same director, same quality. If you enjoyed one, it's almost quaranteed that you'll enjoy the other.
