One ofour favorite movies - we are huge fans of Studio Ghibli. And so if you love this, go buy Ponyo, Spirited Away, The Cat Returns, Princess Mononoke, Pomkoko, Panda Go Panda, and Howl's Moving Castle. Lovely - story is for younger kids. Read More

Editors Note
Note Departing from the action-oriented plots of his previous films (NAUSICAÄ OF THE VALLEY OF THE WIND and LAPUTA, CASTLE IN THE SKY), Japan's most beloved animator, Hayao Miyazaki, provides a slower-paced, stunningly realistic portrayal of life in the countryside. When their mother is hospitalized because of an unspecified illness, two young sisters spend a summer in the Japanese countryside with their father. The children's strange new environment turns out to be a natural wonderland filled with exotic real-life creatures and a trio of furry, woodland sprites who can only be seen by children. The film evokes both the terrors and wonders that children can experience unbeknownst to adults--a feeling the young Miyazaki knew only too well after his mother was hospitalized because of spinal tuberculosis. With homages to ALICE IN WONDERLAND and MARY POPPINS, the second film from Studio Ghibli delighted audiences and put the young animation studio on firm financial footing.
Plot Summary
Summary Two young sisters move to the Japanese countryside with their father, while their mother recuperates from an unspecified illness back at the city hospital. The children's strange new environment turns out to be a wonderland of living beauty that the two investigate with both curiosity and excitement. In addition to the exotic real-life creatures they encounter, a furry woodland sprite (who can only be seen by children) introduces them to a fantastic realm of tricks and possibilities.

Reviews
New York Times "...[When the film] is dispensing enchantment, it can be very charming....Visually very handsome..." 05/14/1993 p.C14,"[A] gentle, haunting fantasy rooted, as the best fantasy films are, in a strict psychological realism." 03/14/2006 p.E9
Chicago Sun-Times "...MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO has become one of the most beloved of all family films....This is one of the lovingly hand-crafted works of Hayao Miyazaki, often called the greatest of the Japanese animators..." 12/23/2001 p.4
Sight and Sound "[I]t beguiles from beginning to end....What sticks with the viewer is the every-kid credibility of the girls' actions as they work, play and settle into their new surroundings." 06/01/2006 p.89
