The Clock family are four-inch-tall people who live anonymously in another family's residence, borrowing simple items to make their home. Life changes for the Clocks when their daughter, Arrietty, is discovered.
When an unconfident young woman is cursed with an old body by a spiteful witch, her only chance of breaking the spell lies with a self-indulgent yet insecure young wizard and his companions in his legged, walking castle.
Reknowned international thief Lupin III (known as "Wolf" in the English dub) comes to the small European duchy of Cagliostro to investigate some excellently-forged money and stumbles across a national conspiracy going back some hundreds of years. Lupin and his friends must rescue the beautiful Clarice from the hands of the evil Count Cagliostro and solve the mystery of a hidden treasure dating back to the 15th century. Written by

Because the film had such a tight production schedule (production took only four months), Hayao Miyazaki claimed he had to alter the script in post-production to complete the film on time for release. He has never revealed what his original scripted idea was ever since, and has only expressed dissatisfaction with the completed film. See more »

We got five billion in various denominations! It's a shower of bills, look out!
[a pile falls on Lupin]
There's a lot of them, isn't there? More! Bury me with them!
[Jigen buries Lupin with the bills as ordered, but sees Lupin look downcast]
What's wrong, Lupin?
These are fakes. Good ones, but fakes.
These? It can't be! We stole these from the vault of the national casino!

I've heard of it prior to seeing it but never really expected the movie to be an awesome experience. One of the greatest anime of all time.
Great use of colors. Great flow of storytelling. The landscape is really spellbinding.
Not surprising since it is produced by Ghibli Studio, directed and written by Hayao Miyazaki. This man is the mastermind behind great anime movie such as Totoro:the neighbour, Kiki delivery Service, Laputa the floating castle. That man is a genius with storytelling and spellbinding anime direction.
The movie starts of in cliché style of action movie. As it progress, you are brought along to experience the world of Lupin adventure.
Its really hard to find fault in a movie that delivers such great feeling. Euphoric!
