"Come out, come out, wherever you are!

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

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.

Stunning

“I am a huge Studio Ghibli/Miyazaki fan, and My Neighbour Totoro is no exception. In fact it is one of my favourites from them. There are so many wonderful things about My Neighbour Totoro. It is very simple in story and character but it is all very beautiful, charming and touching. The animation is typical Ghibli, ethereal-looking and just ravishing to watch, while the music is one of my favourite scores in a Ghibli film. The story is simple, but I loved the simplicity, it had such a pleasant atmosphere to it, and the characters are engaging with great chemistry together. I have very little to complain about the voice acting either, everybody did a fine job. In conclusion, in my opinion this is an animated classic. 10/10 Bethany Cox” read more

Movie But Anime (30 movies items)

"This one is pretty popular for Miyasaki as well but I couldn't really like it. It is very quiet and slow. The story did not get hold of me. It just did not compete with Spirited away or Howl's moving castle. "

"FORMAT: 35mm PRINT QUALITY: ★★★★½ NOTES: The Akira print was copied directly from the original Japanese prints, and given the sources of these a Ghibli prints pre-Spirited Away, I felt that it would be clear as day that Totoro’s print came from a more modern method of transferral. Thankfully, it still felt for the most part like it could have come from any time before the 2000’s. The picture for around half of the film was slightly blurred, which did confirm my suspicions, but it wa"
