My Neighbor Totoro Reviews

Incorporating a whimsical dose of fantasy in the form of three creatures living inside a nearby tree that seemingly only children can see, the film is light on plot but gorgeously animated and touchingly gentle.

Devoid of the folklore and much of the fantasia of his more outwardly visionary work, My Neighbor Totoro nevertheless endures as Hayao Miyazaki's most beloved work.

Blessed with gorgeously clear transfers of the hand-drawn magic, it's worth picking up for any anime lover.
