Tonari no Totoro

Hayao Miyazaki Japão, 1988

FilmEdie's rating of the film Meu Amigo Totoro

Sometimes I feel like watching Miyazaki is more effective than therapy at remedying the lacks in my childhood. Gorgeous and magical. Mei is badass. The dad wins at parenting. And the catbus is terrifying. I mean, wonderful. But terrifying. Wonderfully terrifying.
