When you look at the list of artists that came to Northeast Ohio during the 1980s, Cleveland seems like the epicenter for rock music it was long touted as. This may seems like a noob question but there are no seeders (or perhaps my internet connection is horrible). Ghibli announced the film in late 2009 with Yonebayashi making his directorial debut as the youngest director of a Ghibli film. Released in Japan on July 17, 2010, The Secret World of Arrietty received critical acclaim, all of whom praised the animation and music. The story takes place in 2010 in Koganei, western Tokyo and like the novel revolves around a group of "tiny people" who are 10 cm tall and live under the floorboards of a typical human household.
A boy named Sho arrives at the house his mother lived in as a child, to live with his great aunt Sadako. That night Arrietty's father Pod takes Arrietty above the floorboards to show her how he gets sugar.
The next day, Sho leaves the dropped sugar cube beside an underground air vent where he first saw Arrietty, but Arrietty's mother Homily warns them not to take it because their existence must be kept secret from humans.
Sho learns from Sadako that his ancestors have seen Borrowers in this house, and they had the dollhouse made especially for the Borrowers, with working electric lights and ovens. Pod returns injured from a borrowing mission, helped by Spiller, a Borrower boy he met on the way.
Mirai Shida[8] as Arrietty (??????Arietti?): A 14-year old borrower who lives with her parents under the floorboards of Sho's house.
Ryunosuke Kamiki[8] as Sho(??, known as Shawn in the United States version): A 12-year old human boy who becomes Arrietty's friend.
Keiko Takeshita[8] as Sadako Maki (? ??Maki Sadako?, known as Jessica in the United States version): The younger sister of Sho's grandmother. Tatsuya Fujiwara[8] as Spiller (????Supira?): A tiny bow-wielding boy who helps Arrietty's family move.
Tomokazu Miura[8] as Pod (???Poddo?): Arrietty's father who often borrows in order to provide for the family. Kirin Kiki[8] as Haru (???): Sadako's maid who is determined to find the truth behind "little people".
Arrietty is screening on 26 November (Sydney) and 4 December (Melbourne) 2011 at the 15th Japanese Film Festival in Australia. In truth, the best kids movies are treated with as much seriousness and stylistic prowess as a live-action art flick for adults.

She eventually befriends Sho, a human boy with a heart condition since birth who is living with his great aunt Sadako. Miyazaki supervised the production as a developing planner.[5] The voice actors were approached in April 2010, and Cecile Corbel wrote the film's score as well as its theme song.
When Sho leaves the car, he sees a cat trying to attack something in the bushes, but the cat leaves after being attacked by a crow.
Their first stop is the kitchen, then they walk within a wall to reach a dollhouse in Sho's bedroom, to get tissue.
Spiller suggests some places the Borrowers can move to, and, after he recovers, Pod goes to check them out. While Sadako is out, Haru locks Sho in his room, unearths the Borrowers' house and puts Homily in a jar in the kitchen.
In this whimsical adventure, tiny 14-year-old Arrietty lives under the floorboards of a sprawling mansion set in a magical, overgrown garden with her father and mother. 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.

When Sadako's maid Haru becomes suspicious of the floorboard's disturbance, Arrietty and her family must escape detection, even if it means leaving their beloved home. Before Arrietty and Pod can leave, Arrietty notices Sho is awake, and accidentally drops the sugar cube they got.
Sho uncovers the floorboards above the Borrower household, uproots their kitchen and replaces it with the kitchen from the dollhouse. He gives her a sugar cube as a parting gift, and tells her the Borrowers' fight for survival has given him hope to live through the operation, which will happen in two days' time.
Pod and Homily realize they have been discovered, and decide the family must move out of the house. During their subsequent conversation Sho theorises that the Borrowers are becoming extinct, which hurts Arrietty. When Arrietty returns to find Homily missing and their house disturbed, she goes to Sho for help. In the English versions, Haru was voiced by Geraldine McEwan in the United Kingdom dub[12] and by Gracie Poletti in the United States dub. Everything they have, they borrow or make from the things they have borrowed from the old lady who lives in the mansion.

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.
Apologising, Sho reveals he has had a heart condition since birth, and will have an operation in a few days.
Arrietty helps Sho break out of his locked room, Sho then carries Arrietty to the kitchen and distracts Haru while Arrietty rescues Homily. Their peaceful life is dramatically changed when the ever-curious Arrietty accidentally allows herself to be seen by Sho, a lonely 12-year-old human boy. 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. Few figures in animation are as poignant and as victimized as Shawn, the sickly human boy who befriends the eponymous borrower. Haru tries to prove to Sadako the Borrowers really exist, but Homily has escaped, and there is nothing below the floorboards: The Borrowers have already set off on their move, and Sho has destroyed the remains. Characterized by a rare fatalism, Shawn accepts the prospect of death if surgery fails to correct his heart condition. 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. 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. 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 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.
