Tonari no Totoro (1988)
See all comments
Another great movie from Hayao Miyazaki! I've been watching all the Studio Ghibli movies one by one and I'm absolutely loving the rich colours and detailed animation. Despite the movie having no strong storyline, no villain, no songs as such and Totoro not talking, it was captivating and entertaining to the very end. A fun and happy movie that people of all ages can enjoy!
Beautiful scenery in every Studio Ghibli film that brings the picture to life and makes it all the more real. My Neighbour Totoro, captures the imagination in characters as well as exploring new and unknown places for an adventure to take place, with the melodic soundtrack making the journey worthwhile. Definitely will watch it again.
This was adorable. Kept me smiling all the way through. The plot was barely existing, but even without any real story it was fun and just all around cute. I usually don't like happy movies like this and I don't understand the hype, but it sure was lovely!
