Arrietty is an anime version of The Borrowers about little people who live under the floorboards who occasionally come up to the main house to “borrow” things.
I loved the Borrowers as a kid, both book and film, when I saw it was now in cartoon version I couldn’t resist.
It is almost identical to the Borrowers film, just a bit different in a few small ways. But still equally as good, it’s a feel good kind of movie.
This is a must see if you either like cartoons or the Borrowers film/book. I can’t say as I have watched the other Japanese films, but this one is truly brilliant. The anime is perfect, beautiful colour work, a pleasure to watch. I can’t wait to sit and watch it again with my nieces and nephews!
I watch quite a lot of films, especially animated ones, and can soon get bored half way through but this film had my eyes glued to the TV all the way till the end. I can’t wait to get myself some more just like this…
Over all I would say DO watch this if you are a lover of quality cartoon, it will bring out the child in you and your kids will love it.
