Another beautiful film from Studio Ghibli and of the brilliant Hayao Miyazaki. A key feature of the master is a sense of presence in created worldwide and though it does not matter how it is fantastic. At the time of viewing its films smile never goes my face. They always give a positive charge and "Arietta" not exception.


The basis was taken from the novel by Mary Norton under the name "Dobyvaci". Dobivanie called the midgets, because they"produce" all but people. Of course the prohibition of them, it to be discovered by people. How you know the ban is not apply to the main characters of such works, so and our Arietta is breaking it. It I saw a boy of fourteen years and named Shaw. With this time starts the main storyline. The juxtaposition of two worlds, each has their own life, their life and their problems, but only the moment they could get close and maybe be a little better.


The main character, Arietta — a brisk, spirited girl, able for themselves, but at the same time obedient and docile. The boy Sho — kind, calm and sometimes apathetic. Despite the strong character of the heroine, in the world of people she small and helpless. This type of characters desire them to protect than and do Sho. But learning about it more becomes unclear who of these two need it.

This short story evokes mixed feelings. Joy and sadness overwhelm me under the end, but I always listen to music looking at the title smiling face.

This is of course my personal opinion, but there can't be another, on my account. If you look at the work of Miyazaki — so you live. Not always on the contrary, of course, but the details which had its place in this masterpiece, forced smile many, many times. For the soul takes, do not argue. Stunning little men-dobyvaci, characters which subtly thought out, memorable places that are in every home, but, just maybe, we had no desire to find them.

Of course, the duration of the cartoon in the soul's hidden desires that here, now, Arietty and Sho look at each other in the eyes, read in them the sympathy and will be dobyvaci live happily under the wing of good fellows.

Only here a woman — the maid, who is the embodiment of vile reality in the work of Miyazaki, with his dripping tar on honey amber color on the entire cartoon. What is, what kind of people went.

Not be surprised so I took seriously. After this it is impossible to deny that the idea that there are no little men hiding from people are fighting for their existence in our world.

As for the characters themselves. As I have no characters well designed, Arietty is one of those desperate heroines who are respected Miyazaki and depicts them always good veryuschy in miracles. Girl owns boyish, she I wonder how is that peace and the courage just overwhelms to the dangers, but that she was so easy to strike down only one number indicating the number of "large" people on the planet.

The end I do not surprised by the fact that Arietti stays with his family and the boy learns life again and preparing operation. How would be expressed. Happy ending, laced with reality, everything happened exactly as it would it is better for both parties. I think Hayao wanted to convey to us thinking — not to interfere in what we one or do not know about. Of course, met a boy and a girl loved each other, but that's the noise caused. By the way, about their feelings nor never mentioned in forehead this style Miyazaki — paints a picture of not diluting the paint and its possible interpretations.

Assessment? Yes, who am I like this to appreciate Miyazaki.

In the magical worlds created by Hayao Miyazaki, it is impossible not to fall in love. Touching tale of dobivanii — a living example.

Plunging head this just want to get away from him back to its unloved reality.

The boy Sho was lucky - he didn't just meet some of the magical folk, but managed to get close to one of them — with the brave girl of Arietty, which gave the dying boy the hope and belief in life.

Incredibly impression on me was made by a combination of French and Japanese culture. Not know if so all or only my version, but I have the characters eating sticks and immediately spoke French! It became me a pleasant surprise.

Separately want to mention the music that has influenced on me very much. Very quiet and touching melody was forced to listen to them again again.

Hayao Miyazaki was able to do something that I not so much enough. His works, he created my personal childhood, filled with magic, care, kindness, and, of course, love.

because it is not can be different! I had dipped with a head, though, and not for long, in ultimately everything is possible! Where good always wins out, where miracles happen, where animals can become best friends, where there are only pure intentions, and where everyone will definitely find your love!

Of course,
