Totoro' on DVD at last! Hayao Miyazaki had been cradling the idea for this wonderful fantasy for a long time before he finally decided to write and direct it. Although it's set in the mid 1950's in Japan's rural area, the sceneries with lots of trees, of fields and meadows with colorful flowers bring a universal feeling of joy and harmony even to those who have never left the big cities or living in other countries. Another charm of the movie is of course it's heart warming tale of the two little sisters and their relationships with the land's mysterious creatures (including a 'Cat Bus!') whose plots aren't forced or condescending in any way, which makes the film such an enjoyable experience for kids and adults alike. It's a 2-disc set with loads of special features, including a storyboard-to-film comparison for the entire film.
Special Feature / Bonus Track: Storyboard to film comparison, Trailers, Music video, Textless opening and ending, Trailers for other Ghibli films

        My Neighbor Totoro 5

        Another Miyazaki masterpiece. Heart warming, refreshing tinged with sadness as a father and two daughters move to the country. Their mother is in hospital trying hard to recover from illness. Full of magic and beautiful animation. The girls explore the countryside and find the magic that helps them as they deal with separation from their mother. The music as always in Miyazaki movies is excellent.

        Great 5

        I got the new dub from Disney, and I enjoyed it so much that I just had to go and buy the original Japanese version. This movie is so good. This is pure magic, and it makes you feel so good from watching it. Totoro is one of my favorite movies of all time! A must buy!

        Most beautiful animation in the world 5

        To me, this is Miyazaki's best work ever. It is the most charming, beautiful, and most heart-warming than his other masterpieces. Its simple stories lies with ecological themes and great love. Even old school Disney films can't come close to high quality animations like Totoro. It's highly magical from start to finish. Highly Recommend!!
