SYNOPSIS

'Few films better capture the magic of childhood than My Neighbour Totoro. Two young sisters move to the countryside for a long, sleepy summer to be near their sick mother. They soon make a new friend, Totoro, who is kindly, a bit chubby, and overly fond of umbrellas. Totoro also grows magic trees overnight, hops aboard huge catbuses, and is probably imaginary. Creating a magical space where the natural, spiritual, fantasy, and human worlds combine, My Neighbour Totoro revels in — and embodies — a true sense of wonder.' Pacific Film Archive
