Wonderful fantasy for children!,
This review is from: My Neighbor Totoro [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This is a touching story of two little girls who live with their father while their mother is recovering from an illness in hospital. When the youngest, Mae, is lost in the woods, she and her sister come across the Totoro, which I take is some kind of a ghost, but in the story looks like a really big fat teddy bear! It has a happy ending and leaves little ones giggling through most of it.
It's not scary at all, and my young children grew up watching it after receiving a copy from their aunt on her return from studying in Korea. I've just ordered it on DVD to replace that old video, which is much the worse for wear!
