    It's a fantastic movie, but I hate it...it will always make me feel sad inside, every time I think about this movie now all I can think of is Studio Ghibli being no more.

    My expectations are always sky high for Ghibli films, but after Princess Kaguya I kept them a bit lower for this one. I'm just glad the studio ended on a high note...REALLY high note! An incredibly well executed character study, thanks to Ghibli's trademark creativity, innocence and visual bliss.

    My only real gripe with it, a personal one, is that they didn't left the ending open to interpretation. You spend the entire movie trying to figure out who Marnie really is, and the movie did a brilliant job at clueing us in to figure it out for ourselves. They revealed it for closure and that emotional punch, which is great but personally I would've preferred to leave it as a quetion Anna has to think over for the rest of her life.

    Anyway, brilliant film! Too bad it's over...so long, Studio Ghibli...

      Editing … Well, better to go with a great film than to just fade off. I don't watch anime but their movies always grab me, they are better than Disney.

      Editing … Me too. I loved anime when I was younger, but now for some reason I just can't stand it. But i'll take a Ghibli movie anyday of the week, love them to death.

      Editing … I think it's because anime has a pretty bombastic style, whereas the Ghibli movies have a more gentle appeal. I've even given Ghibli movies to my mum (Porco Rosso and Howl's Castle) to watch and she loved them.

    I expected nothing, and got a masterpiece. This is my new favorite film of all time. Made me cry no more than 3 times.
