YesAsia Editorial Description

Acclaimed Japanese animation production house Studio Ghibli - co-founded by legendary animation director Miyazaki Hayao - is back with its latest production two years after Ponyo. While Miyazaki co-wrote and produced The Borrower Arrietty, directing duty has been handed this time over to Yonebayashi Hiromasa, who has been working at the studio as an animator since Princess Mononoke. With this film, Yonebayashi became the youngest director of a Studio Ghibli film.

Based on The Borrowers by British author Mary Norton, The Borrower Arrietty takes place in a world in which tiny people called Borrowers rely on "borrowing" tiny objects inside the human house they inhibit to maintain their survival. Young actress Shida Mirai (Nobody to Watch Over Me) voices main character Arrietty, a young Borrower who strikes up an unlikely friendship with a young human boy whose kindness unwittingly sends Arrietty on a harrowing adventure. Taking place entirely inside a Japanese countryside home, the filmmakers' attention to literally miniscule details easily makes up for its simple story and its lack of Miyazaki's brand of grand themes. Also featuring the voices of Kirin Kiki, Fujiwara Tetsuya, and Tomokazu Miura, The Borrower Arrietty is the highest-grossing Japanese film at the Japanese box office in 2010, and it's also the winner of the Best Animated Film Grand Prize at the Japan Academy Prize.

Beneath our floorboards and inside our walls live a tiny race of people called the Borrowers. Pod (Tomokazu Miura), Homily, and their adventurous daughter Arrietty (Shida Mirai) make up one of the few Borrower families that still exist in the world. One day, young boy Sho moves into the house they reside in and notices Arriety briefly. Despite Pod and Homily's warnings about the danger human beings pose to their kind, Arrietty forms a friendship with Sho. Fascinated by the Borrowers, Sho begins to commit acts of kindness for Arrietty's family, only to raise the attention of housekeeper Haru (Kirin Kiki).

Product Information

  那年夏天,我在媽媽的老家渡過了一個禮拜

  在那裡我遇上了媽媽之前說過的小小人少女

  不能被人類發現,那是借物小小人族的規定

  12歲男孩翔因罹患心臟病而極需靜養的他,搬遷至東京郊外老宅休養,由祖母與管家照顧他。在那裡他發現了一個祕密:借東西的小小人族。他們只有約10公分高,住在老宅地板下,每天穿梭在細縫中,與蟑螂螞蟻為伍,人類常常使用的生活用品,對他們而言可以使用上個一年半載,唯一的規則就是不能讓人類發現。

  14歲來自小小人族的女孩艾莉緹,對世界充滿好奇,她終於得到父親的允許體驗「借東西」的冒險,但首次行動就被翔所發現!

  本來小小人若被人類發現就意味著末日來臨,但艾莉緹卻與翔建立出一份特別的感情。到底這段真摯而短暫的友誼,將會為他們的生命帶來怎樣地改變呢?

Its a beautiful movie with amazing art...everything in the movie looks like real photos (besides the people in it) like the scenery and furniture and etc.

Delightful family film Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
"The Borrower Arrietty," Japan's highest-grossing film of 2010, is a gorgeous, traditional hand-drawn anime from Studio Ghibli, the studio that produces Hiyao Miyazaki's gems, including "My Neighbor Totoro," "Princess Mononoke," "Spirited Away," etc. Miyazaki didn't direct "Arrietty", but he did write the screenplay for it (the story comes from a British children's novel) and the character designs carry the familiar Studio Ghibli look.

The story: Hidden away in our world is a race of very tiny people (they look to be about 2 1/2 to 3 inches tall), many of whom live in tiny homes in the cracks and basements of our homes. They make their living by "borrowing" (scavenging, really) stuff from normal-sized people. In the normal-sized world they are regarded as a legend, an old wives' tale. They try to ensure that they remain unseen and, when they fear that they have been spotted, they move to a new home.

Arrietty is one of these little "borrowers." She lives with her pint-sized parents in a home in the country. A normal-sized young boy who has spent his entire life sick with a serious heart condition moves into the home to spend his last few days before having an operation which may help him or kill him. The boy spots Arrietty, then seeks to befriend her. She desperately wants to evade him, but also is curious to learn more about him, particularly as she knows no one other than her parents. The boy's attentions to Arrietty are noticed by the nasty housekeeper, who long has suspected that there might be "borrowers" hiding in the home. The housekeeper is determined to exterminate the little creatures. Arrietty and her parents must decide whether to leave their comfy little home.

The movie is sweet and sentimental, but also includes elements of adventure, as the "borrowers" are forced to confront what, from their perspective, are monstrously large insects, birds, animals, and people. Arrietty and her family prove quite intrepid in facing their challenges and the film does a splendid job of capturing how our world would appear from their perspective. "Arrietty" is a delightful family film.
