Karigurashi no Arrietty (Hiromasa Yonebayashi)

Karigurashi no Arrietty

Hiromasa Yonebayashi | Junior 6+

Tiny, human-shaped creatures populate the nooks and crannies of our homes and quietly lead lives parallel to ours. These are of course the Borrowers, popular heroes of children’s literature and cinema, here in a cultural context that is radically different from their English roots. Miyazaki is very much at the heart of the film, and wrote the screenplay, but he handed the directing reins to another animator.
