Studio Ghibli has done it again. The Secret World of Arrietty based on Mary Norton's The Borrowers has been on my need to watch list since it came out and it did not disappoint. The amazing Hayao Miyazaki co-wrote the screenplay and even though he wasn't animating the film himself you could see his influence in the beautifully drawn world of the Borrowers and in the little details of their lives. Arrietty is a beautiful film that shows proves that traditionally animated movies have not been out dated by CGI. That being said I would really like to watch the original Japanese version--with subtitles of course--to make sure that I didn't miss anything in the Disney transition.
