When Marnie Was There

When Marnie Was There

7.8 out of 10

Twelve-year-old Anna Sasaki lives in Sapporo with her foster parents, but she remains emotionally aloof, conscious that they are only taking care of her because the state pays them. Following a severe asthma attack in the city, Anna's foster mother Yoriko sends the girl to spend the summer with relatives Kiyomasa and Setsu Oiwa, who live by the sea where there is less smog. In this coastal idyll, Anna is inextricably drawn to a crumbling mansion, located across an overgrown salt marsh.
