Tonari No Totoro
1988 | Hayao Miyazaki
We open our Hayao Miyazaki series with one of the great animator’s most beloved films—which first debuted in Cleveland at the Cinematheque back in 1993! This gentle, poetic masterpiece tells of two young sisters who move with their father to the Japanese countryside, where they encounter spirits and other amazing creatures who can be seen only by children. One of them, the huge, furry, flying Totoro, takes the girls on a series of fantastic adventures. “The film that first brought Miyazaki to international attention remains an animated achievement almost without parallel.” –Time Out Film Guide.
