Samuel Bird’s review published on Letterboxd:
Perfect Score Rewatch Fest: 17/18
The only 5/5 animated film of mine and I am very content on My Neighbor Totoro being my favourite animation.
I’ve talked about this plenty before so I’ll keep it pretty brief. This film handles the concept of dealing with fear in an extremely imaginative way whilst handling a comforting, vibrant storyline which will always brighten up my day when I watch it.
A universal message that is timeless- can’t believe this was made over thirty years ago. Marvellous.
Really want a Totoro tattoo.
Favourite line: “Everybody, try laughing. Then whatever scares you will go away”.
