Neighbors For Life: A Review of MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO

To say that I am a Miyazaki fan is a great understatement. I put his film fight up there with Disney classics. The smoothly painted and animated images that dance on screen just as colorful, with the exception that Ghibli films are animated 60 frames per second instead of Disney’s 40. This gives his work a very realistic motion. Of course Studio Ghibli fan will recognize Totoro, the Micky Mouse of the studio as it were; becoming the mascot and logo for the company. This is Miyasaki’s most beloved film worldwide, and for good reason. Many of his films deal with concepts of human arrogance: pollution, deforestation, good characters being forced to do bad, greed etc. My Neighbor Totoro deals with a very simple, yet all encompassing concept, life. Growth, youth, death, and spirit are the things that our lovely neighbor brings to light in this film.
