When Marnie Was There

Is it possible to watch When Marnie Was There and not feel like it’s a eulogy for Studio Ghibli? Perhaps you can shake that feeling, but the deeply melancholy at its core and its emotional goodbye feel self-reflective. I think some of this has to do with the announcement of the studio’s closing, which may or may not be temporary, which would make this the final possible film from Ghibli, ever.... read more

Some people're destined to meet the secret friend.

From the director Hiromasa Yonebayashi of 'The Secret World of Arriety' fame. Based on the 1967 English novel of the same name and so the important characters borrowed the western names. This is what I call a fine adaptation, great transformation from the words to the motion picture. Actually, it suited for the narration from the standpoint of Japanese culture and lifestyle, especially for this an... read more

I was recently catching up on Hayao Miyazaki's work and one of my colleagues suggested me to also watch this Ghibli production even if Miyazaki wasn't involved in this project. Well, I have to admit that I really enjoyed it a lot, in fact, I thought it was actually better than many movies directed by Miyazaki. Of course, it had the advantage that it was released only a couple of years ago so the a... read more

“Una película bastante agradable. La protagonista es un buen personaje, al tener un buen desarrollo a través del filme. No hay nada particularmente impresionante en el filme más allá de la animación, pero sigue siendo una película decente ya que no hace algo particularmente mal e igualmente, como dije anteriormente, la protagonista es un buen personaje.

No es muy buena, y si he de admitir algo hace tiempo que no la veo, pero por lo que recuerdo, está bien.” read more

A very good movie

“I was recently catching up on Hayao Miyazaki's work and one of my colleagues suggested me to also watch this Ghibli production even if Miyazaki wasn't involved in this project. Well, I have to admit that I really enjoyed it a lot, in fact, I thought it was actually better than many movies directed by Miyazaki. Of course, it had the advantage that it was released only a couple of years ago so the animation was just gorgeous but I wouldn't expect less from  a Ghibli production. Then, after watching 'Mimi wo sumaseba' and 'Majo no takkyûbin' which both featured some really interesting main female characters, this movie delivered an even more complex and fascinating character with Anna. Indeed, the teenage anxiety, especially among girls, has always been a Ghibli speciality but it had never ” read more

" It's a lot of what you've come to expect from Studio Ghibli. It's imaginative and pretty to look at. The characters are well-crafted and the story delivers on the emotional spectrum. It's not the best from this studio, but it's well worth a watch."

"17.3 Hiromasa Yonebayashin animaatiojälki on esteettisesti huippuluokkaa, mikä tuli jo esimerkiksi Henkien kätkemässä ilmi, mutta itsenäisenä tarinankertojana hän ei yllä lähimaillekaan Miyazakin tasolle. Kätkijöiden tavoin tämäkin on ammentanut esikuvansa brittikirjallisuudesta, tällä kertaa Joan G. Robinsonin samannimisestä lastenkirjasta. Annan ja tämän mielikuvitusystävä Marnien ystävyyttä käsitellään vain lähinnä pintapuolisesti, mutta sentään loppua kohden se"

"31.12. (DVD) En jaksa enää panostaa viime vuoden päivyriin. Muutenkin elokuva tuntui menneen ohi liiallisen pölöttämisen vuoksi. Kai tästä jotain surumielistä haikeutta ja kaikkea muuta olisi ollut mahdollista repiä. Hyvästi vuosi 2017, tere tulemast parempi vuosi 2018."
