The latest instalment from the wondrous animation house the world has come to know and love is an adaptation of the classic children's novel The Borrowers. Directed by veteran Studio Ghibli animator Hiromasa Yonebayashi and scripted by the master Hayao Miyazaki it's set in present day Japan.

Miniature Arietty and her family live under the floorboards of an ordinary house in the Toyko suburbs 'borrowing' everything they need from their human landlords. Life is beautifully simple for them until a chance encounter between Arietty and a young boy (the nephew of the human hosts) threatens disastrous consequences. Exquisitely detailed in every way and utterly enchanting.

Japan 2010 Dir. Hiromasa Yonebayashi 94min.
