book cover

Fantasy Novel

Notes "My Neighbour Tototo", Movie, 75 mins, 1988
Classification -
Review Somewhat in contrast to Nausicaa, this is an idyllic vision of country childhood. Mei and Satsuki move to an old house in the country to be nearer their mother, who is in a sanatorium. Their father catches the bus every day to go lecture. The girls encounter some woodland spirits - the Totoros.
Voted by some fans as their favourite movie, of any kind, ever. And yes, there is a bit of flying in it... (Available in a low-priced, dubbed US edition.)
