Arrietty summary: 14-year-old Arrietty (Ronan) and the rest of the Clock family live in peaceful anonymity as they make their own home from items “borrowed” from the house’s human inhabitants. However, life changes for the Clocks when a human boy discovers Arrietty. Sounds interesting!

    This is laughable, The Borrowers is a typically British story and this looks heavily animated in a manga-inspired style which I find totally lazy, tacky and out of character and they also want to use american accents?.

    Mary Norton would probably be turning in her grave about now, even Bedknobs and Broomsticks which was adapted from her book was made in Britain and had British actors.

    Fine I can understand they want to bring the story to new generations but they had a hugely successful tv series in the 1990′s with Jim Broadbent and also a film, if they really wanted to do another version should have done it justice and gone down a more classically animated version.

    I’m guessing you’ve never seen a Studio Ghibli film before? They are a very competent animation studio, whose output could easily be said to match Pixar in quality. If you don’t like the style I can’t change your mind, but if you say the animation is tacky and lazy then do look again. The characters might be done in an anime style but the backgrounds are stunning work.

    Your complaint is that its not a British production, but you shouldn’t reject it out of hand for that reason. You mentioned Bedknobs and Broomsticks – made by Disney, an American company (gasp!) using american screenwriters (double gasp!!) and american animators (triple gasp!!) who outsourced their cell colouring to Taiwan (quadruple gasp!!!!). It’s a bit of a silly example.

    Also, out of interest, I wonder if you’ve ever watched and enjoyed movies such as The Departed, Vanilla Sky, Twelve Monkeys or The Magnificent Seven? They’re all adapted from foreign source material. Do you have the same feelings about those movies? Are they laughable?
