***REVIEW IS BASED PURELY ON THE FILM, NOT FEATURES***
I do want to state that I am reviewing this product purely on the film itself as I only have the Japanese version, I do know however that the English version which is due for release WILL have English audio :)
Unlike most Studio Ghibli films which are directed by Hayao Miyazaki, this one was in fact done by Hiromasa Yonebayashi who is apparently the youngest person to ever so far direct a film for Studio Ghibli, do not let this in any way put you off as it has every feel a Ghibli film would have.
The film is based on a very tiny girl named "Arrietty" who is a borrower, she lives with her mum and dad under a house which they borrow from so they can survive, things soon change when Arrietty gets into human contact with a boy named Sho, as one of the main rules of a borrower is not too be seen by a human being the parents get rather worried for their well-being, I can't really go into much more detail without ruining the story so I'll just leave it as that.
Everyone who watches this film will greatly appreciate the work that has been put into the animation & stoyline and will be enjoyed by anyone (child, teen or adult).
I also love the soundtrack which is very fitting to the film, which is done by Cécile Corbel
This film deserves top marks and no less and will recommend this film to all!

Just came back from watching the English version from the cinema, I still really enjoyed it.
Voices for Arrietty and her family were pretty much spot on, however the voice acting for Sho (the boy) could of been done by someone better, it didn't bother me too much, but it was lacking that little something, other than that the film is still top-notch!
