‘When Marnie was there'

2014 | 103min. | PG

Promise we'll remain a secret, forever.

Twelve-year-old Anna believes she sits outside the invisible magic circle to which most people belong, and shuts herself off from everyone around her. Concerned for her health, Anna's foster mother decides to send her to rural Hokkaido to stay in a sleepy town by the sea. As she dreams her days away amongst the marshes, Anna finds herself strangely… Based on the beloved novel by Joan G. Robinson, WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE is the latest film from Studio Ghibli, and the second feature film by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, the director of ARRIETTY.

Presented by Consulate-General of Japan in Auckland, The Japan Foundation

    思い出のマーニー、素晴らしい小説ですね。映画は見たことがないけれど、まだ若い多感な時期に、こういう本に巡り会うことはとても大事だと思うのです。

    私は小説は読んだことがないけれど、映画は見たことがあります。英語の吹き替え版でなかなかよかったです。よくできた映画だと思います。明日の大学での上映会では、日本語版を英語の字幕付きで上映予定です。
