My Neighbour Totoro (U) – 1988, Japan, 86 mins, English language version
Director: Hayao Miyazaki
When two girls move to the country to be near their ailing mother, they have adventures with the wondrous forest spirits who live nearby. Simply magical.
“Here is a children’s film made for the world we should live in, rather than the one we occupy. A film with no villains. No fight scenes. No evil adults. No fighting between the two kids. No scary monsters. No darkness before the dawn. A world that is benign. A world where if you meet a strange towering creature in the forest, you curl up on its tummy and have a nap.
”My Neighbor Totoro” has become one of the most beloved of all family films without ever having been much promoted or advertised. It’s a perennial best seller on video. On the Internet Movie Database, it’s voted the fifth best family film of all time, right behind ”Toy Story 2” and ahead of ”Shrek.” The new Anime Encyclopedia calls it the best Japanese animated film ever made. Whenever I watch it, I smile, and smile, and smile.”
Doors open 7:00pm. Film at 7:30pm.
