"Come out, come out, wherever you are!

Japan's premier animator Hayao Miyazaki is often described as the "Japanese Walt Disney". Over the years, Miyazaki and Isao Takahata's Studio Ghibli has been responsible for countless animated masterpieces. From the earlier Grave of the Fireflies to the more recent Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke, Studio Ghibli has persistently bestowed aud... read more

Definitely one for a younger audience

Whereas other Ghibli films are more suitable for all ages, I felt this film was far more accessible for younger people. There wasn't much to engage the older viewer.

Set in a picturesque town deep in the countryside, this fantastical story involves two girls who befriend Totoro, a lazy tree-dwelling creature who provides them with all the escapism they need after having to come to ... read more

Two young girls, Satsuke and her younger sister Mei, move into a house in the country with their father to be closer to their hospitalized mother. Satsuke and Mei discover that the nearby forest is inhabited by magical creatures called Totoros (pronounced toe-toe-ro). They soon befriend these Totoros, and have several magical adventures.

"MY NEIGHBOUR TOTORO - WAITING FOR THE CATBUS Frequently named as the best of the Studio Ghibli films and one of the crowning achievements of director Hayao Miyazaki, 'My Neighbour Totoro' is a film whose immense charm and simple magic crept up on me. The first time I watched it, I enjoyed it but its masterpiece status passed me by, probably due to its unpredictable narrative shifts which seem completely logical on subsequent viewings. Perhaps the greatest shock of 'My Neighbour Totoro' for thos"

A Complete Review of Hayao Miyazaki's work (14 movies items)

" What was it about? When two girls move to the country to be near their ailing mother, they have adventures with the wondrous forest spirits who live nearby. My two cents: If I recall it correctly, I first saw this flick in the movie theater, of course, not when it was released (back then, I don’t think Hayao Miyazaki had already had his international breakthrough) but the local Art house movie theater wanted to re-release it for some reasons, probably because of Miyazaki’s impress"

" It's a lovely film. It does run a bit slow a few times, but the attention to detail and imagination in this film is quite spectacular and something to admire. Another thing is how efficiently it treats the playfulness of being a child and how the world looks through the eyes of children. The story loses its track every now and then, but it makes up for that by creating quite a few memorable sequences. "

"4.2. Parasta Totorossa on se, kuinka elävä elokuva oikeasti on. Miten ihmiset liikkuvat, reagoivat ja olevat. Hahmot käyttäytyvät niin käsittämättömän aidosti: kuinka täpinöissään lapset vilistävät uuteen kotiin päästyään, kuinka Mei väsyy isää sateessa odottaen, kuinka lapset (ja aikuiset) reagoivat kummituksiin... Listaa voisi jatkaa loppumattomiin. Superlatiiveja visuaalisesta ilmeestä, superlatiiveja teemojen käsittelytavoista. Superlatiiveja elokuvasta. Toisellaki"
