The Secret World of Arriety is a fantastic family film filled (all that alliteration! haha) with adventure and heart. This screen play is based on the book, The Borrowers, by Mary Norton. Interestingly enough this Studio Ghibli movie was dubbed into two different versions! Disney took the reigns and also StudioCanal of the United Kingdom produced a version of the original Japanese rendition.
There are two type of people in this world: The Borrowers and the Humans. Borrowers are beings who are like Humans but smaller. They are very intelligent and resourceful. As the name entails, they borrow. They borrow items that won't really be missed. A spare needle becomes a sword. A sugar cube, a clip, a watch, and thimble are all items a borrower may use. Borrowers are usually never seen and sometimes told as a fictional entity. Some humans will hurt or capture borrowers if they spot them.
And their House can be quite regal as well! Very much the same as a human Home! Very Cute! Hayao Miyazaki did a beautiful job of capturing the detail and beauty of the architecture of the rooms and what is within them.
Definitely a great movie! its just fasinating how these mighty borrowers live such a dangerous lifestyle! Its quite admirable really. Thanks for reading this long card! X) Comment if you've seen this film or want to know more or what you thought of it!
@briandiana11 @williamdforney @ZoilaObregon @xDaisyDaysx @DeadlyCyanide Yeah definitely I really love this movie! (: I am trying to get all the studio ghibli movies on DVD. I've seen more than the ones I have on dvd but I have Spirited away, howls moving castle, kiki's delivery service, my neighbor totoro, castle in the sky, from up on poppy hill, and the wind rises.
i love his work! just pure artistic and beautiful animation! this one along with others are my faves!
my wife and I saw this in Hastings and we're just like WE HAVE TO GET IT
@KristianHampton It really is great! I think it was artistically fitting and a great interpretation of the borrowers from the book
This is one of my absolute favorites! I loved the Borrowers as a kid, and I still remember how excited I was when I heard about this movie.
