The American English dubbed version (under the title "The Secret World of Arrietty") features some extra narrated dialogue at the end of the film that is not in the Japanese or British English version, presumably to end the film on a more optimistic note. See more »
works always. in each cases. nice stories, delicate colors, sent of childhood as precise spell, fragile joy of little show and great attention to details. Arietti is not an exception. only new page of a impressive tale. tiny people are an old myth. relationship with people - subject of movies and books. and even all is fresh. the sugar cube, metamorphose of Thumbelina, nuances of friendship, condition of a minority, sad story of sick boy are pieces of a fascinating carpet. a film out of images, full of suggestions. trip in the profound spaces of ordinary things and air of hope as blanket. it is strange to define or describe it.wise lesson , like each Ghibli production, it is ball of dreams as glass to understand reality in basic way.
