Very nicely done indeed
13 February 2002 | by (New York NY) – See all my reviews

Saw this Hallmark Hall of Fame presentation growing up, don't know if it's available on video but it absolutely should be. Fine performances all round, with a nice tight script that does full justice to the really important things in the book: the details of how the Clock family live, the amusing relationships between Pod and Aunt Sophy and Arietty and the boy.

Definitely one of the better films for children of the past 30 years. Literate and never condescends. And never falls into the trap of making any of the characters too cute.
