'When Marnie Was There' Review, Plus Why You Need to Watch It
The movie follows young Anna, a girl who lives with her foster parents in Sapporo, as she's sent away for the summer to recover from a really bad asthma attack. So she now has to stay in Kushiro, a seaside town where she doesn't know anyone, but that's not a problem considering she's quite an introvert. One day, Anna sees an old abandoned house across a seaside marsh and, somehow, it seems familiar. That's when she starts having visions of a little blond girl called Marnie, who soon becomes her friend, but is also filled with mystery.
The animation in this film is breathtaking! Not only every shot in this movie looks like a masterpiece, but the heartbreaking story that we get to see in When Marnie Was There will leave many of you in tears. So anyone who loves animated features should give this a shot, not only because this movie is beautiful in more than one way and makes people learn that friendship can help through tough times, but also because we should support Studio Ghibli for the incredible films they keep giving us.
