If you think that the storyline of Omoide no Marnie (When Marnie Was There) is the only thing that will tug at your heart, then you should watch the movie again and listen to its OST. Its songs will knock at your heart and leave a trail of sadness behind.
Studio Ghibli’s 2014 movie Omoide no Marnie was originally a children’s book called When Marnie Was There, written by Joan Robinson. Of course, with any adaptation, there are surely similarities and differences compared to the original material. Let's take a closer look at both the book and movie.
