enjoyed what I saw

My three year old kept starting this at different points so I'm not sure I ended up seeing the entire movie, but I really enjoyed what I saw of it. I never quite figured out what was wrong with the mother though.

A magical tail!

I am sure there are no other sotries like this one! totally original and beautiful score!


My kids (7 and 5) absolutely loved this movie. There were so many laughs. I'm so glad that I checked it out on a whim.

Love it

Love this movie. Great family movie with adorable animation



The Most Adorable Movie Ever

I love this movie because it shows a wonderful relationship between sisters but also because Totoro is the cutest animated movie character that has ever been. I highly recommend watching this movie, if only for the cuddly feeling you get when you meet Totoro.


It's very cute and beautiful. I absolutely love it and have watched it so many times.

My Neighbor Tortoro

This is probably my favorite Miyazaki movie ever!


Great movie - highly recommended!


I loved this film so much as a child. The story of a family moving to a different home and having to adjust with the mother hospitalized is very touching. This film filled with magic, cute Totoro and the Cat bus, dust bunnies, the majestic tree. The relationship of two sisters, discovery, and family are all special elements of the film.

Imagination and fantasizing are GOOD!

This is a very sweet story that handles some serious subject matter with a light touch. Just goes to show that kids CAN use their imagination, and yes, even fantasize to help them cope with their fears.

A perfect children's film

For children under ten or if you are just having a bad day, there is no better film than this. Period.
