When Marnie Was There

When Marnie Was There (2014)

Genre: Animation, Drama, Family Film

This is a wonderful and stunning movie that has become one of my favourites from Studio Ghibli 😀 . The story is written beautifully that it keeps you entertained throughout and explored many realistic themes. It explored a rather strange girl (Anna) who can’t connect with others very well and even though she can be rather mean, she is quite likable. I loved the magic hints throughout this movie and the mystery of Marnie 😀 . The animation is drawn wonderfully and the scenes like “the boat on the water during the full moon” are quite pretty 😛 . My favourite of the characters was Marnie and when her reveal appears (when the Anna figures out who she is) is the best scene in this film. It made me cry so much as the way the themes are explored all come down to that scene, which will pull many people’s heart strings 😛 ! The themes that play throughout are loneliness, finding yourself and love. The relationship between the two girls is endearing and sweet 🙂 . The background music adds to the mystery and alluring quality of Marnie that makes you want to solve the story yourself 😛 . I also enjoyed the ending that finished off the film well. Overall, a fantastic movie that I would watch again and again plus would definitely recommend this movie 😀 . Enjoy 😀

I give this film 5 Stars out of 5!

Promise we’ll remain a secret, forever.
