Arrietty, titled The Borrower Arrietty (Japanese: 借りぐらしのアリエッティ Hepburn: Kari-gurashi no Arietti) in Japan and The Secret World of Arrietty in North America, is a 2010 Japanese animated fantasy film produced by Studio Ghibli and directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi as his feature film debut as a director.

The novel was adapted as a screenplay by Hayao Miyazaki and Keiko Niwa, based on The Borrowers by Mary Norton, an English author of children’s books, about a family of tiny people who live secretly in the walls and floors of a typical household, borrowing items from humans to survive. The film stars the voices of Mirai Shida, Ryunosuke Kamiki, Shinobu Otake, Keiko Takeshita, Tatsuya Fujiwara, Tomokazu Miura, and Kirin Kiki, and tells the story of a young Borrower (Shida) befriending a human boy (Kamiki), while trying to avoid being detected by the other humans.
One of most appealing visualization in this movie is about ‘miniature’ civilization, The Borrowers is small figures who wanna be live side by side with human normal, but no doubt cannot because the fact and situation. In others perspective in visual art, we can get the detailed and match proportion in borrower’s miniature stuff.
