Arrietty is Studio Ghibli’s latest film, based on Mary Norton’s novel The Borrowers from 1952.
Arrietty is set in a Tokyo suburb, even though the people, as almost always in the Japanese animated film, doesn?t look very Japanese. One of the most fascinating things with these books and films is the way the borrowers take things from the ordinary world to make use of in their tiny little miniature home. In the book and earlier films the relationship between Arrietty and the boy of the house is one based on friendship, but Yonebayashi is here rather showing a more passionate affection than that. There is also an almost ecological concern in the film, that we have to preserve disappearing species, as well as a lesson to us not to fear the different, regardless if it?s big or small. In truth, the best kids movies are treated with as much seriousness and stylistic prowess as a live-action art flick for adults. Arrietty belongs to the four-inch tall Clock family who lives anonymously in another, ‘big’, family’s residence and their home is a collection of things they have borrowed from the big world. The narrative is elegant and floats freely, even if the style is almost too polished and impersonal.
These underlying issues could have been more developed as they are here overshadowed by the love story between Arrietty and Sho. To start the day off I just had to go ahead and show you guys how to draw Arrietty, step by step. You will begin by making some shapes and guides to form a workable frame for your drawing of Arrietty.
All you have to do is draw in the top part of her hairstyle which should be like a ball because she has her hair pulled back in a ponytail. For the last drawing step all you have to do is draw the other leg and then draw some of the boot that visible. Japan’s Studio Ghibli, well-known to critics, continues its legacy of sophisticated anime with The Secret World of Arrietty.Based on Mary Norton’s famous children’s novel, The Borrowers, the film focuses on a family of very tiny, very human-like people.
Arrietty is directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi who worked as an animator on Ghibli classics like Spirited Away, Howl?s Moving Castle and Ponyo.
Mary Norton?s novel is a very British product and even though the film from 1997 is set in America, the borrowers remain British. It makes you see your own world with new eyes and how you can make creative use of everything from needles, to corks, old wrapping paper or fragments of glass.
When she stands in his hand and they look deeply into each other’s eyes, while the music score is playing a love song, it gets almost kinky.


The film is otherwise a very well made film that is a pleasure to watch, even though it could have been a bit more creative, fantastic and imaginative.
She is the main character in the Japanese anime fantasy movie ‘The Secret World of Arrietty’. Draw a circle for the head and then add the guidelines for the neck, shoulders, torso, and hips.
The screenplay is written by Studio Ghibli’s leading man, Hayao Miyazaki, who also stands as executive producer for the film. It is, then, a bit strange, but also refreshing to see this setting, even though it is a rather westernized version of Japan. This is actually rather disappointing in this version because most of the stuff in the Clock family’s home are already miniature things.
The father has played a big part in the story in previous adaptations, portrayed by actors like Ian Holm and John Goodman, but he is here reduced to a sullen and rather boring character, while the mother is annoyingly hysterical, worried that they will be discovered and forced to move. I can?t help thinking of King Kong in this scene and it gets even stranger when you think of the fact that she?s only fourteen years old.
One of the reasons why I am so excited to be doing these lessons is because the new film release is by the same individual that brought us ‘Ponyo’, Spirited Away’, and others.
Unfortunately for Arrietty, fraternizing with the housemate Shawn, a human of terrifyingly regular height, renders her living situation short-lived.Despite its roots in American literature, Arrietty eschews its western ties and disappears into the eastern tradition of Studio Ghibli’s gorgeous, pastoral-focused animation. Her fear is justified, though, as the lonely sick boy in the host family, Sho, detects Arrietty and they are then trapped thanks to an evil-minded housekeeper. Arrietty used to be a very strong and independent young girl, but she is here dominated by her father and literally in the hands of the boy.
Disney is presenting the new release which is by Studio Ghurli and it should be in theaters February 17 of this year. This is a film in awe of its environment.Better yet is the film’s maturity, its sincere and honest confrontation with dark themes, proof that a movie’s mass appeal does not rest with its targeted audience. Mary Norton’s classic children’s books have been made into several TV-series of which John Henderson’s The Borrowers from 1992-93 is the most successful, but there has only been one film, Peter Hewitt’s The Borrowers from 1997.
Outside there are so many things that could emphasize the size difference in various fantastic ways, such as larger animals, but we see mostly grass and bushes, which is not that fascinating. Few figures in animation are as poignant and as victimized as Shawn, the sickly human boy who befriends the eponymous borrower. I miss the creative use of material things and the imaginative world of the borrowers and wonder if it has something to do with the fact that it?s an animated film.


Arrietty is a little person that lives in a secret world under the floorboards of home in a suburban area.
Characterized by a rare fatalism, Shawn accepts the prospect of death if surgery fails to correct his heart condition. Everything here is ‘constructed’ and the difference between the real and the miniature world seems minimized. The reason why there is a lot of forest and foliage in her world is because the house that they live under is a garden home. This separates Ghibli from other dumbed down, kid-friendly studios who avoid such pronounced pessimism.Despite plunging its audiences into a fantasy, Arrietty maintains enough humanism to reflect the nature of life, just as a proper fable should. This is surprising since Studio Ghibli is known for their very imaginative, fantastic and exiting settings in films like Howl?s Moving Castle and Spirited Away. The folks that live or own the house have no idea that there is a family of little people in existence. Once and a while they will emerge from their hiding to borrow things like sugar, or anything else they need.
When they are discovered, they move away from the “bigger people” of the world in search of a better life.The film’s sound mixing reflects the movie’s technical skill and demands the audience’s attention.
Arrietty is a fourteen year old girl that who literally puts her family at risk of being discovered when she becomes friends with a twelve year old human boy that comes to stay in the home.
As the camera cuts between kitchen appliances, the audience hears her fear in the form of every noise that one associates with daytime kitchen use.
The film is actually based on a very popular children’s book series called ‘The Borrowers’ wrote by Mary Norton. The sounds echo frighteningly throughout the night, but only in her head.For all its professionalism, The Secret World of Arrietty, like the borrowers themselves, is a scaled down version of Studio Ghibli epics such as Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, and Howl’s Moving Castle.
It lacks the scope, the ambition, and the imagination of the studio’s bold earlier works, which defied logic and convention.
Arrietty is just all too familiar, barely above predictability.Nevertheless, Ghibli remains the Godzilla to our Pixar, making waves in our domestic animated film industry and doing it with class.
