My Neighbor Totoro

My Neighbor Totoro ★★★★★

i've watched this film numerous times since childhood, but watching it last night was the first time i cried during it? the moment satsuki broke down in front of kanta's grandma whilst they were awaiting news from the hospital, and satsuki let out her built up fears crying, i felt myself holding back tears. when I was younger this film was pure wonder, then a few years after my little sister was born i felt like i related to satsuki and mei's relationship, and now watching it all the layers of this film feel like they're unfolding. it's interesting how your experiences and everything change how you view certain things. i hope to watch this again in a few years and find some more new things i never thought about previously.
