Kari-gurashi no Arietti


As a warm up to Showcomotion 2012, another chance to see one of last year's festival favourites.

Sho moves into his great aunt's house. Living there already are a group of tiny people, the Borrowers. A 14-year-old Borrower named Arrietty strives to prove herself by helping her father gather materials that her family needs from Sho's new home. Arrietty soon discovers Sho breaking the rule that humans must not know about the Borrowers' existence. As Sho and Arrietty's relationship develops, human interference endangers the Borrowers' lives.
