My Neighbor Totoro

My Neighbor Totoro ★★★★

80% - Pretty Great

The depiction of the kids in this film are so accurate and it totally encapsulates how it felt to be so young. There’s such a great sense of adventurous fun and discovering this magical world with these two adorable little girls was such a pleasant experience. Their relationship with their sick mother was very touching and it’s cool when you consider that their magical friends were actually coping mechanisms for dealing with this situation. Overall, I loved My Neighbor Totoro and it’s a film I can put on whenever I want to escape to a simpler time.
