The latest Studio Ghibli film The Secret World of Arrietty is due in theaters in February 2012, but you can enjoy the story anytime with this picture book version. Although Hayao Miyazaki was the executive producer in The Cat Returns (2002), he did not direct it.
I believe in this movie we finally get to see what Shizuku was writing about, when she wrote about The Baron’s adventures in Whisper of the Heart.
It’s a fun movie (I especially enjoyed how Haru turns more and more into a cat the longer she stays in the cat kingdom), but I felt it was too hurried, and too short. The story is about Arren a lost prince in a world where dragons (who were once men) roam the skies.
Ponyo wants to be a human girl, and the Goddess of Mercy can make that happen, but at a cost. Written and produced by Hayao Miyazaki, The Secret World of Arrietty (2010) was directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi. In this movie, we see the Miyazaki style in the way non-human creatures are designed, such as bugs… and the cat! Then, there’s the visual storytelling style employed when the humans interact with the Borrowers. News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services. Re-live the fun of The Secret World of Arrietty with this 2-volume series, which retells the story, film comic style.
Only Miyazaki can pitch a story of an anthropomorphic pig – who just happens to be a pilot who is a bounty hunter for air pirates – and receive high praise from the critics. Although, this isn’t the first time Miyazaki creates a great and new fantastic world in film, it is the first time you feel truly immersed.
Theologically instead of having multiple cities in the sky, we have a singular one that reigns over everyone watching from the ground. Even when he’s not directing, it is next to impossible to overlook his flawless writing, especially when adapting books.
Her drive leads her to believe she can do more for her family than she is currently doing, and her curiosity gets her in more trouble than she can bear.
The thing is, that while all that “You need to be with your kind, it’s too dangerous out there” plot is going on, Arrietty and Shawn’s relationship develops.

She and her family live hidden beneath the floorboards of a house, borrowing the things they need from the humans who live inside.

And so, the adventure revolves around Haru, who accidentally goes to a kingdom of cats after she saves the life of a cat prince in the street. The artwork and music in this movie show that contrast well: beauty in an otherwise ugly world. The fantasy mythos is fun, and the dragon bits are a great touch of awesomeness… but overall, this movie needed to be more entertaining.
But where Studio Ghibli really shines is in the minute details (pun intended): things actually behave differently in the Borrowers’ world *because* they are of much smaller size! The simple presence of a human’s single hand, in the home of the Borrowers, is enough to cause an earthquake, stormlike whooshing sounds (when the hand moves), and even a sense of monstrosity when the motions of the human hand are compared to the actions of the little people.
A young boy named Sho befriends Arrietty, but when adults discover the Borrowers, Arrittey and Sho must work together to save her family.Based on the classic novel by Mary Norton The Borrowers, The Secret World of Arrietty is a delight for all ages.
Even if you are not fully aware of the name, on some level you know his work, and you probably already love it. And if that were all – the entertaining misadventures of Porco Rosso – that would be enough. But all of this is present in the background while the story follows the main characters’ exploits.
They are interestingly different from each other, but both are basically under house arrest and when they break those boundaries, the consequences are grave. Again we can appreciate a nice subversion of stereotypes while traveling off to magnificent places. Only Miyazaki can wrap all this up and give you a multilayered experience which is very hard to forget.
Even with an Earth that has deadly flora for every human, it maintains Miyazaki’s charming, and enthralling undertones.
Her resolve is amazing, she is fearless on her mission, and nothing can stop her from changing the world.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. When Arrietty is discovered by a human boy named Shawn, her world is no longer secret and her family is in danger. It reminds me of Labyrinth, because the cat king wants to keep her there and see her wed; plus Haru and her helper friends (which include The Baron) have to traverse and dominate a labyrinth in order to exit the cat kingdom and go home. Maybe it’s *meant* to be based on previous story ideas, but it just seems to me that other Ghibli films had more original story concepts (even the ones that were based on books!).
Arrietty is a teenage little person and new borrower; she is discovered by Shawn (the young boy staying at the house) on her first outing as a borrower. For example, when Arrietty’s mom serves tea, it pours into their teacups drop by drop, and not as a stream! This was a wonderful Ghibli film, and I think my all-time favorite version of The Borrowers. With Hayao Miyazaki, you may be attracted to his work for its visual magnitude but you’ll stay for his impeccable storytelling.
This is where royal line is explored, through the various subplots and character-developing segments throughout the narrative. What the audience cares about is Arrietty discovering that these terrible titans known to us as humans, aren’t the beastly behemoths their kind believe them to be. This means that not everything is sugar-coated, and the story maintains its feet set in the ground.
The cinematography is pretty solid, not many loose ends are left unanswered, and the visual cues that elevate the written dialogue are all in place.
This is the movie that demonstrated what he believes in, and what he will defend with all the resources he has at its disposal.

It seems to me that your belief, that living eco-friendly would somehow be mediocre, is affecting your interpretation. If Arrietty can trust Shawn to protect her, she might discover a friendship she never imagined possible.
The two become friends, though their relationship comes at a great cost to the little people. Making even one film that is accessible to the general public while having deep layers that inspire introspection is hard enough.
So, for everyone that is not yet a fan – or for those longtime fans that want their opinions reinforced, or challenged – in no specific order, here are 10 essential Hayao Miyazaki films every animation fan should watch. A man who is no longer a man but a badass human-like porcine bounty hunter dealing with his predicament with a sunny disposition. In a flashback, we discover what Porco Rosso sees every day in the mirror, and it is a touching moment that adds depth to the character. It has elements of high fantasy, medieval adventure, political commentary, and Greek epic, among others.
Now, even if the subject matter is not your cup of tea, you still have a visually inspiring film that cannot be fully appreciated in just one viewing. She discovers this by getting to know Shawn, a young boy with a heart condition that makes it dangerous for him to become too agitated. There is not one element in this film that outshines the other; it is really a case where all the elements taken together are what create a masterpiece. The detail on the grasslands that portray how mother nature took back her house to mend its injuries makes you even smell the possibly poisonous atmosphere. To me, the story was really about realizing nature is not your enemy, and finding a way to live in harmony with it. Also, the sound design of the film is ingenious; we hear ordinary house noises as musical reverberations, just as Arrietty would hear them at her size! It works beautifully with what we already know of the badass porcine bounty hunter with the sunny disposition. It still haves everything that makes Miyazaki the great director and screenwriter we love and know, even if it has been wrapped in another kind of paper. From the start, your pulse will race at the battles and the beautifully directed action sequences. I can’t say what is my favorite (but Nausicaa does hold a special place) as they are all so good (with wonderful soundtracks, to boot!). Now, add the weight of his past regrets and what is currently going on in his mind, and it makes an unforgettable tale.
At the same time, it is a battle between those up there and these down here – in essence, the privileged and the non-privileged.
You have to ignore the preachy commentary on nature versus human, because even if that’s what the story is about, it is not the central engine of it. Despite the spoiler, I will say that it has the happiest of endings and it succeeds in leaving you wondering how exactly to interpret the conclusion, unexpected surprises and all. And with the whole falling cities debacle, you get a sense of the classic myth the decline of on old kingdom falling to make way for a new, younger more prepared kingdom. At times Arrietty may seem like the typical rebellious, reckless teenager but she’s actually a fully rounded character with a wide range of emotions. Nonetheless, this is a story about a warrior who will not stop fighting for what she believes.
