Critic Reviews for My Neighbor Totoro
Despite these limits, My Neighbor Totoro is a gentle and affirming film.
Miyazaki's appreciation of miraculous possibilities and childhood visions is what drives Totoro.
The world the characters inhabit is less expressionist than impressionist, blessed with a delicate evocation of natural light and color that subtly incorporates Miyazaki's environmentalism.
Obviously aimed at an international audience, the film evinces a disorienting combination of cultures that produces a nowhere land more confused than fascinating.
Audience Reviews for My Neighbor Totoro
No plot and a little slow, but super cute and fun.
An enchanting movie for children, so beautiful in its wonderful simplicity, innocence and sweetness that it feels like almost impossible not to be touched by such an adorable story devoid of clichés and with no need to rely on villains or contrived conflicts.
Not usually the biggest Miyazaki fan, but maybe I just needed to try out one of his kid movies. I could actually figure out what was going on in this one, and it was sweet and whimsical, if still a bit slow.
