Miyazaki’s superbly animated tale is considered to be one of the best-loved family films of all time.
The story follows Satsuki (Hidaka) and Mei (Sakamoto), two young girls who find their new home is by a mystical forest inhabited by a menagerie of fantastical creatures called Totoros. They befriend O-Totoro, the biggest and eldest of them, and king of the forest. While the girls’ mother lies sick in hospital, O-Totoro takes them on a magical adventure and helps them to understand the realities of life.
Containing a powerful ecological theme, this is a lovingly crafted work of depth, import and beauty.
