A friend of mine introduced me to My Neighbour Totoro. I had never heard of the film before and I was intrigued. I like watching and learning new things; I’m always game for a challenge and here I definitely discovered something very beautiful and emotional.
Oh my I was in love – and the first thought, that came to me was how I had never seen anything this cute in my whole life. We agreed upon we both wanted a stuffed Totoro. He looks really soft and I just want to cuddle with him.
Hayao Miyazaki has made an almost complete film: his animation was breathtaking – on the very same level if not better than Pixar Studios in America and the story was just beautiful written. I’m sorry I’m repeating myself, but I think the word “beautiful” is the most fitting to describe the film.
It’s so different from the films I use to watch which is mostly from the Western World like Denmark, Great Britain, America, Germany, Spain, Canada – and occasionally from Sweden. I’m definitely going to watch some of his other animated films whenever I get the chance.
