"An emotionally, beautiful, piece of traditional-animated film!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

“A beautiful, hand-drawn feature-length animated film that the story is about a shy, artistically-driven young girl named Anna who was sent to a rural, coastal town for health reasons, when 1 night she discovered a mysterious young, blond-haired girl named Marnie where both shall form a inseparable friendship for life”.

The film tackles various themes like emotion, mystery, discovery, generosity, and friendship that both girls must endure & tackle along their life.

Unlike any other Studio Ghibli films, this is the first Ghibli film that isn't involved or directed by the founder (Hayao Miyazaki) due to his retirement from feature-length films back in 2013. To take over future Studio Ghibli film projects, the director's role was promoted to none other than Hiromasa Yonebayashi, who directed “The Secret World Of Arriety” (2010).

This is got to be my favourite Studio Ghibli film since Spirited Away (2001).

Highly recommended for all Studio Ghibli/Japanese Anime fans!

Description

Twelve-year-old Anna believes she sits outside the invisible magic circle to which most people belong, and shuts herself off from everyone around her.

Concerned for her health, Anna’s foster mother decides to send her to rural Hokkaido to stay in a sleepy town by the sea. As she dreams her days away amongst the marshes, Anna finds herself strangely drawn to the enigmatic house which sits upon the edge there. This is where she meets Marnie, an energetic young girl who seems to appear from nowhere. The pair quickly become inseparable.

One evening, Marnie makes a heartfelt request of Anna: “Promise me something – that we’ll remain a secret, forever.” Anna begins to wonder about her newfound friend and is compelled to investigate the truth about her. As she is drawn deeper into Marnie’s world, she begins to learn about family, friendship and kindness.

Based on the beloved novel by Joan G. Robinson, WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE is the latest film from Studio Ghibli, and the second feature film by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, the director of ARRIETTY.
