The AMP Reviews The Secret World of Arrietty (2010)
On this episode, Cat and Joe discuss and review Studio Ghibli's 'The Secret World of Arrietty' based on the British children's novel The Borrowers by author Mary Norton. This is the directorial debut of former Ghibli animator Hiromasa Yonebayashi who later went on to co-found Studio Ponoc. Cat and Joe discuss how Yonebayashi successfully creates a believable yet hugely imaginative world of the tiny people who live in our walls and steal our stuff. They also discuss what they would do if they found Borrowers living in their own apartments, and what it would be like to live in a big scary world if you were only 4 inches tall.
