For everyone else in the village the old house is abandoned, but when Anna approaches it, it's as if time has stood still and the house is filled with life again. Anna and Marnie become best friends, but one day Marni suddenly disappears. Anna starts to question who Marnie really is.

"When Marnie Was There" was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature at the 88th Academy Awards. We can see why.

Studio Ghibli has created so many wonderful movies, including "Spirited Away" and "My Neighbour Totoro". "When Marnie Was There" is no exception.

It's a beautiful movie but there are some dark and dramatic scenes, the age limit is therefore 6 years old. In Norway, you can book your tickets here. Enjoy!
