When an unconfident young woman is cursed with an old body by a spiteful witch, her only chance of breaking the spell lies with a self-indulgent yet insecure young wizard and his companions in his legged, walking home.
The Clock family are four-inch-tall people who live anonymously in another family's residence, borrowing simple items to make their home. Life changes for the Clocks when their daughter, Arrietty, is discovered.
Reknowned international thief Lupin III (known as "Wolf" in the English dub) comes to the small European duchy of Cagliostro to investigate some excellently-forged money and stumbles across a national conspiracy going back some hundreds of years. Lupin and his friends must rescue the beautiful Clarice from the hands of the evil Count Cagliostro and solve the mystery of a hidden treasure dating back to the 15th century. Written by

After Lupin and Jigen enter Cagliostro, the camera zooms out for a bit and shows them with their disguises off before they actually remove them a moment later. See more »
We got five billion in various denominations! It's a shower of bills, look out!
[a pile falls on Lupin]
There's a lot of them, isn't there? More! Bury me with them!
[Jigen buries Lupin with the bills as ordered, but sees Lupin look downcast]
What's wrong, Lupin?
These are fakes. Good ones, but fakes.
These? It can't be! We stole these from the vault of the national casino!

I just saw this on Madman Cinema DVD. I don't know if this is just an Australian distributor, but believe me, they've got their hearts in the right place! I swear I saw this movie when I was a kid, but I always feel that way when I watch Miyazaki's films. This one is my favourite. In terms of adventure movies, I'd say it's second only to "Raiders of the Lost Ark"! At first it's joyous, exhilarating and kind of sweet. Then watch it again and you'll see how clever the writing is and how tightly written the plot is. It does things in adventure movies that could never be done in live action. If this were a traditionally (Disney) animated film it would have sucked. Same if it were done with puppetry, stop-motion animation or CGI. But in the world of Manga, it's a perfect fit. I found it at a local library. See if you can do the same! It's a masterpiece!!!
