The movie was visually beautiful; the attention to visual detail, both exceptional and interesting; accompanying sound exquisite and appropriate; many a wondrous heart-warming visual spectacle. Unfortunately once you get past the eye-candy, the story itself was amateurish. If the producers of this movie had spent a tenth of the time on the writing/plot development as they did the visual – this could have been a very good movie. For those not completely enchanted by Ghibli, visual art, and/or Hayao Miyazaki, but rather see movies to be captivated by story, then this may not be the movie that you think it is. What's up with all of the sighing and grunting? Could they have made Arrietty's mother, a character who plays the part of comedic relief, anymore annoying? Sorry if I've offended anyone, just trying to be honest. I say see it for yourself, but rating this an 8 or higher, come on.
