Synopsis

Arrietty, a tiny but tenacious 14-year-old, lives with her parents in the recesses of a suburban garden home, unbeknownst to the homeowner and her housekeeper. Like all little people, Arrietty remains hidden from view, except during occasional covert ventures beyond the floorboards to "borrow" scrap supplies like sugar cubes from her human hosts. But when 12-year-old Shou, a human boy who comes to stay in the home, discovers his mysterious housemate one evening, a secret friendship blossoms. If discovered, their relationship could drive Arrietty's family from the home and straight into danger.

Studio Ghibli is quite renowned for it’s rather large portfolio of acclaimed family movies, and you could definitely add Karigurashi no Arrietty to that list. Ghibli usually makes two types of movies, either fantasy movies that focus on themes that are rather critical of problems in society (Miyazaki’s Princess Mononoke and Nausicca come to mind), whereas in more recent times we’ve seen more slice-of-life fantasy adventure movies. Arrietty fits more into the latter, with it’s setting being modern day society with a small little twist; there are tiny, tiny people living under the house, and they borrow from humans to survive.

With Hayao Miyazaki retiring seven times (and returning seven times, too), Studio Ghibli is producing an increasing number of movies directed by new talents, including Hiromasa Yonebayashi. At the time I am writing this review, Ghibli fans around the world are expecting Yonebayashi's new film to premiere this summer... and trust me, those who watched Karigurashi no Arrietty know they're in for a good time.

This is Yonebayashi's directorial debut, Karigurashi no Arrietty, or "the borrower Arrietty", a four-inch-tall girl living with her four-inch-tall family in the nooks and crannies of a country house. They survive by "borrowing" small tools and pieces of food from humans, read more

Recommendations

the same amazing feeling you get while you watch the movie
you keep staring to the screen even after the movie is finshed for a while...!
Auto-conclusive movies and yet masterpieces.
Both have gorgeous art and colors, great romantic, fantasy and supernatural stories.
Both are two pearls of japanese animation.
They both can give you this relaxing calm feeling, and as well melancholic at the same time.

Just a word to describe them: Beautiful.

In addition, Arrietty has splendid music.
