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

"de 3/10 para 6/10 ok poderia ser melhor sim, tem coisas que simplesmente foram deixadas sem explicação ou insinuações pesadas mas ainda sim eu considero Marnie um bom drama psicológico, a protagonista me lembra algo como Shinji ou Houlden Caufield."

Another Studio Ghibli charmer

“'When Marnie Was There' may not be one of Studio Ghibli's best films ('Princess Mononoke', 'Spirited Away', 'My Neighbour Totoro', 'Castle in the Sky', 'Whisper of the Heart' and 'Grave of the Fireflies).

But even when Ghibli are not at their best they still produce films that are better than most studios at their worst, while 'Tales from Earthsea' is from personal opinion their weakest effort it does have enough to make it watchable still. 'When Marnie Was There' drags a little at times particularly in the first half an hour or so, which is somewhat aimless, and some of the supporting characters could have been much better fleshed out.

These flaws aside, 'When Marnie Was There' is still a real charmer, and ranks possibly around higher middle of Studio Ghibli's filmogra” read more

"13.2 Yonebayashi/Japani Yhdentekevimmässä näkemistäni Gibleistä introvertti tyttö muuttaa maalle kesäksi ja alkaa hengailemaan kummitustytön/mielikuvitusystävän kanssa. Kummituksen ja/tai mielikuvitusystävän kanssa koetut jännittävät hetket eivät jaksa katsojaa kiinnostaa ymmärrettävistä syistä. Rantarämeikkö on miljöönä myös tylsähkö. Lentoon elokuva lähtee vasta lopun melodramaattisissa paljastuksissa kummitusta ja päähenkilöä yhdistävästä linkistä."

“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
