An instant classic & standard setter for anime films, "My Neighbor Totoro" is an amazing portrait of childhood innocence.

This movie is one that gives me butterflies every time I rewatch it. I can remember the feelings I had as a child when I watch this movie now. No movie is more magical than this adventurous masterpiece. All the spirits are just amazing and have you wishing they were real. The Dust Bunnies, the Totoros, and the Cat Bus are staples of my childhood and have become my child's favorites. This movie has and will stand the test of time and will be hard to match.

Miyazaki breathes life and charm into his signature memorable visuals with a charming tale that blends spiritual fantasy with the reality of children coping with adult issues.

My neighbor Totoro is about 2 young sisters who move to a different country. The bad news is that they live in a haunted house which is very old and looks like it might collapse any second. Also they have a sick mother in the hospital and there father is the only person who can take care of them. Totoro is a giant spirit in which May (the younger sibling) finds out about him. He is a giant spirit who nobody else can see besides May and Sazaki. Besides the point i think this movie would be great for children and adults to watch. It is very interesting and adventurous throughout the whole movie.

By far the sweetest of the Studio Ghibli films I have seen, My Neighbor Totoro is still a cut above most animated fare. Children are guaranteed to fall in love with this, and adults will find it enjoyable as well.
