When Marnie Was There ()

Probable Score
Not Enough Info
Your Rating

Based on a 1967 children's book by British writer Joan G. Robinson. Anna (voiced by Sara Takatsuki), an unhappy 12-year-old orphan who calls her kindly adoptive mother "aunt," and Marnie (Kasumi Arimura), an outgoing, if mysterious, blonde-haired girl become friends while Anna is spending a summer on the Hokkaido coast with her mother's relatives. It quickly becomes apparent, however, that Marnie is not what she seems and that the story will be more than an ode to budding female friendship. (japantimes.co.jp)

Probably the closest thing Ghibli have to a mystery story. It follows the young protagonist Anna who befriends an enigmatic girl named Marnie and grapples with her own past. The beautiful animation and lively characters make it easy to forgive some of the slightly weaker middle part, and I thought the resolution was satisfying and emotionally resonant.

Along with Princess Kaguya before it, this is a welcome change of pace from what we've come to expect from Studio Ghibli. Whereas that film set itself apart in style and grandiosity of story, this does so much more quietly, with a beautifully written, totally relatable main character. I really did want it to turn into a forbidden lesbian romance plot by the end, but what ends up happening is just about as good.

The story is really beautiful, but the presentation and revelation of the mysterious aspects of the narrative is a bit clumsy. It's not Ghiblis best but as usual they just can't seem to fail.

Bags out at the end, concluding with an unsurprising final twist. The film's annoying melodrama in its second half, and unusually bland protagonist ultimately causes When Marnie Was There to slip below comparable Ghibli efforts like Whisper of the Heart and Up on Poppy Hill. [Full Review]

When Marnie Was There looks beautiful, which we have come to expect from Ghibli. Its fantasy elements come more from the psychological aspects of the story than from the visuals. This movie carries a lot of emotional depth, and is honest about adolescent separation. The story is so complicated that the final few scenes that "explain" it come too late.

Beautiful, but ultimately disappointing. The emotions felt lackluster, the plot sloppy, the pacing slow (and not in the good way either). MAN did I ever want this to be some kind of chaste, young lesbian romance ghost story.

Weakest, most conventional Ghibli entry ever made -- and still a heart-warming ghost story about family ties, broken memories and a desperate sense of discovery.

I've never been much of a anime fan so even the great Studio Ghibli films have escaped me, making the Oscar nominated animation film Omoide no Mânî [When Marnie Was There] (2014) the first film I see from this legendary studio. And it took a while before I started to fall in love with it. Always sweet, but it wasn't until hints of what the story was really about that the emotional nerve hit hard and I've got no idea how it did that! All I know is that I had to fight back the tears a long time!

"two hours until high tide..." ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. the first two acts of this movie are nothing but shivers of desperate (gay - and no that isn't negated by the ending IMO) longing. act 3 is too heavy on needless exposition and just generally tidy and safe, but i doubt any other movie this year will so be printed so indelibly onto my memory. studio ghibli has never been more meaningful to me than this decade, and if they fold it'll be a major loss, but i'd be content with this as a swansong.
