"Very few films come along that are magical for all ages and are wholsome, sane, intelligent and entertaining. 'My Neighbor Totoro is one of them." -- Roger Ebert, Siskel & Ebert.

Enter a whimsical "garden of earthly delights" (New York Times), in this enchanting fantasy adventure that has become an international favourite of childream around the world.

Deep inside a tree trunk, two children dicover a fascinating new world inhabited by Totoros, amazing, charming creatures who become their friends. Some are big, some are small, but all of them are furry, loveable and ready to do wonderous, magical things... like fly over mountains and make giant trees grow in the middle of the night! Best of all, Totoros can't be seen by adults, only the children who love them.

With its imaginative characters, heartwarming story and striking animation by the award-winning animator Hayao Miyazaki, MY NEIGHBOUR TOTORO is "certain to delight" (Los Angeles Times) again and again.
