Ah right, sorry for assuming UK, Marita. Anyway, I hope that the film will come to your local cinemas soon.

This is out on DVD or Blu Ray now. It has the original Japanese with subtitles or the English voice cast. (This is not a US cast; I think the US release is somewhat later). There is a  posh dual disc version (Blu Ray plus DVD) with really nice packaging and pictures.

A lovely film, and so I am reading the original novel to celebrate the disc release.

I saw Arietty on TV (film rented from digital TV provider) and have since seen the DVD in the shop where weíve bought all our Ghibli films. I really enjoyed it when I saw it. It is all done with such care for detail and as you said the gloopy nature of the water is just brilliant.

I'm glad that you enjoyed it, Marita!

I recently watched one of the much earlier Ghibli films on DVD - Laputa: Castle in the Sky. I loved it. It is more of an action adventure, but with a grand fantasy and a hint of science fiction to keep me happy! The mining village in the film is apparently inspired by Welsh mining heritage, the director having visited Wales.

We have ĎCastle in the Skyí on DVD, bought purely because it was a Studio Ghibli film. Another one we have is ĎGrave of the Firefliesí. This is the story of two children in Japan during WWII. Quite different for a Ghibli film as it is based on reality. Very moving without being soppy.
