Arete Hime

Arete Hime

AKA: Princess Arete
Fantasy, Drama, Magic - 2001 (Movie)
 
Ranking: 741

Confined in the castle tower by her father, princess Arete spends her days watching the world outside her window. Sometimes she seeks out to watch the common people at work. The knights of the kingdom compete for the right to marry her and rule the land by competing to see who can find powerful magic objects made by a long dead race of sorcerers. Arete wants none of this. She longs to meet the common people and travel to exotic lands she has only seen in the books she keeps hidden under her bed. One day the sorcerer Boax arrives in a fantastic flying machine and offers to take Arete as his wife and transform her into a proper princess. (Source: ANN)

Reviews

   

While it could use a bit more screen magic, Princess Arete is still a good film, if you don't mind that the plot is moving at half-speed at all times. - ThemAnime

    

Arete’s actions during the final arc of the movie are both ironic and admirably heroic. I’m nitpicking by naming this film’s flaws, but the plot occasionally relies on convenient coincidences and the pacing probably severely limits its appeal. But anime that are as insightful and meaningful as this are a rarity. - Nihon Review
