Once they are found, they have to move out. That is their rule, but one day, Arrietty happens to be found by a boy living above the floor. . .

          The Borrower Arrietty 5

          The latest Studio Ghibli masterpiece is here, in its definitive Blu-ray release! Based on the classic children's book The Borrowers by Mary Norton, this is the story of the young boy Sho who comes to live with his great aunt in a house also inhabited by Borrowers, a little people who live in harmony with humans, but usually invisible. The tale of Show's relationship with Arrietty, a Borrower girl, unfolds with the usual Ghibli touch for whimsy and magic, under the hand of new director Hiromasa Yonebayashi and the guiding influence of writer Hayao Miyazaki. This deluxe Blu-ray edition comes with an amazing amount of extras, including a "picture within picture" feature of the storyboard played alongside the film, the voice actor's recording script, two interviews with Miyazaki (24 minutes) and Yonebayashi (41 minutes), a commemorative featurette on Ghibli released along with Arrietty (43 minutes), a promotional video featuring Arrietty composer Cecile Corbel, and a collection of trailers and promotional shorts. The film itself is 94 minutes, with audio tracks in Japanese, French, Korean, Mandarin and Cantonese, and subtitles in Japanese, English, French, Korean, Mandarin, and Cantonese. The whole thing spans two Blu-ray discs and is packed in a distinctive lovely book-style archival collector's case - a beautiful issuing of a film that's already on the way to becoming a new Ghibli classic.

          Oscar Worthy Again 5

          This is an absolutely beautiful movie, and a fantastic adaptation of the book. As well as the beauty of the animation the soundtrack that goes with the movie is also fantastic. If you can it is worth the premium to buy it on Blu-ray over DVD to fully appreciate this master piece from Ghibli. One final note to say that the subtitles are miss translated as "human beans" is wrong as that is what the Borrowers call humans in the books and its nice to see that they haven't "corrected" that aspect of the story.

          The Borrower Arrietty - BD 4

          Error in English subtitles. Human beings are constantly referred to as "human beans". Beautiful BD picture! Great DTS-HD MA sound!

          Absolutely Brilliant ^_^ Pre-Release Comment

          I loved watching this last Summer in Japan, I went all the way from the UK to Japan just to see this film in the cinema in Tokyo ^_^ I loved the film so much I nearly cried, being English made this film more special for me because the original novel was written and based in England and this anime film is based in Japan which made this even more special ^_^ Thank you Studio Ghibli
