My Neighbor Totoro


Miyazaki’s most well know work, My Neighbor Totoro, is released.  It follows the adventures of two sisters, Mei and Satsuki, and Totoro, a large, bear-like forest spirit.

I can’t make films that are, you know — slay the villain, everybody’s happy. I can’t make those kinds of films. I think that when children become three or four years old, they just need to see Totoro. It’s a very innocent film. I wanted to make a film in which there’s a monster that’s living next door but you can’t see it.
