Movie synopsis
Departing from the action-oriented plots of his previous films (NAUSICA� 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.

Editorial reviews

"...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..."
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert (12/23/2001)

"It 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."
Sight and Sound - Matthew Leyland (06/01/2006)

"...When the film is dispensing enchantment, it can be very charming....Visually very handsome..."
New York Times - Stephen Holden (05/14/1993)

"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." -- Grade: A
A.V. Club - Sam Adams (05/22/2013)

"A gentle, haunting fantasy rooted, as the best fantasy films are, in a strict psychological realism."
New York Times - Dave Kehr (03/14/2006)

"The film moves freely between delicately observed adolescent emotion and wondrous imagery."
Entertainment Weekly - Entertainment Weekly Staff (05/24/2013)
