Speaking of the cartoons of such brilliant masters as Miyazaki, objective assessment will not can. Due to the fact that, if picture there is a defect, then he more than kompensiruet all-consuming hurricane of positive emotions. But all in order..


Open eyes..

Kusakabe Satsuki and may — two sisters, remaining under supervision of the father until the mother is in the hospital.

Satsuki — the eldest, a remarkably bright, lively and responsible girl. In fact, left the eldest in the family, cares for younger sister and working father the move helps at all.

Especially touching is the relationship between Satsuki and the boy next door. To the tears of cute children's sympathy translates into comic with the heroic deeds.

Mei — younger sister. With stunning, strong-willed and independent nature (another nod in the direction of Miyazaki). Childish, resentful, and stubborn. Loves his family a little soul. She first meets Totoro.

Parents, a neighbor boy and a constant Majakovskaja "grandma" Edges — characters, of course, wonderful and expressive, creating a perfect emotional background for the unfolding of the action and a conductive line under the characters of reality.

Hello, my cute fairy tale..

Blackie — the first greetings from Japanese beliefs. Small, fluffy, black as resin creatures living in abandoned houses. Grandma Kant tells Satsuki and Mei how to get rid of cernosek. (It is, incidentally, explains that they are called Susuwatari — travelling ash) In the same the night of ringlets leave the house and move on tree Totoro.

Totoro — the guardian of the forest. I want to see that Totoro is not a traditional Japanese character, , and from the shaggy head to clawed paws the invention of Miyazaki. Not speaking of adds, by the way, only the charm, publishes only the roar and individual sounds. Totoro in the cartoon, a few. The largest Totoro growth is half to two adults, the small — knee-Mei, then there are about 10-15 cm 

The cat-bus — the presence of bus (unusual creatures) it is easy to explain about Japanese mythology. At belief, cats who have lived for more than thirteen years, or weighing 3.75 kg, or has a long tail can become a bakeneko. It is, simply put, to change the form. On the Bus there is a sign talking about the destination. He moved, with inherent feline speed and agility. Headlights work radiant feline eyes. For most people invisible, and is reflected in their minds only as a gust of wind. Then again we would like to thank the master... More would, if the person is not notice the Bus that all he could see, to see or understand..?


The story on surprisingly uncomplicated. And extends the four parallel lines along the whole movie... But I have said that the seeming lack of plot, confusing story lies a huge pile of philosophical meanings, allusions, irony... in a word, exciting game with mind.

I strongly advise you to look at all. And children, and, of course, adults. Frustration is not will.

Just saw the movie-famous the whole world of Director Miyazaki's "My neighbor Totoro". Miyazaki is famous for its masterpiece "spirited away". So now, if "spirited away" rather for adults, "My neighbor Totoro" in the time for kids. So well I want to assure you that if you don't like childish stories, then You unlikely to enjoy.

One of the main advantages of this film — it is kindness. Here looks like well I get a smile on my face! And it's perfect! All here deep kindness, she is instantly uplifting and this makes you wonder. So that, I can safely say that while watching from You will rise up.

The film teaches that need to be friendship nature. It is clearly, we shows image of Totoro. Mad spirit of the forest with a big heart and heart allows little girls to be distracted, and giving joy, as the audience. He happy little things, which we do not notice behaving strangely. This character is well thought out, it behavior facial expressions, all it looks wonderful. Hero is memorable and does not leave anyone indifferent.

For the 1988 film perfectly legible. All the emotions of the characters transferred well as in General, in all anime. Film pleases the eye with a visual point of view, some of the current cartoons look worse than this. In General, in this respect, the film is excellent.

The humor here is present in large quantity. There are very funny situations that will make everyone laugh, but also, do not have those dumb jokes that are now present in almost all the cartoons, and have a good sense of humor. What is the Totoro!

The music that plays on the duration of the film, has always been to place only betrayed paints what is happening, she just stressed emotions and feelings of the characters in one or another. Even she was often very similar, but as not strange, it don't bother. To the music there is no complaints.

Perhaps the only drawback is the timing of the film, he ended very quickly and after viewing the remains the feeling of emptiness and incompleteness. I was quite surprised when on the screen appeared the titles, the fact that the fairy tale ended.

Result: "My neighbor Totoro" good, instructive film which is safe, although there is no need to show the children. Miyazaki has created something unusual and magical, that will not leave anyone indifferent and will allow find yourself in a fairy tale, filled with only good! Of course, the film deserves attention, and see it is, is only 86 minutes, and I'm sure not good in watching the movie is time.

A wonderful cartoon! And although I tend not to succumb to such strong emotions when watching animated creations, but really, it is that would view and admire. What same? And that's is the most difficult question of many arising later.

I want to note that accuracy which has been drawn outside of the heroes of the world that for Miyazaki is quite common. Fairy forest as if life on screen, and wind ruffle at the water seemed so real that surprised — it was just paint, and not computer graphics... but these colors of the childhood. Paint from those still intact gray the insignificance of the real world, dreams, fantasies and naivety of the first steps.

The main characters at the same time and ridiculous sad. In the depths of the soul, projecting the picture in life, you know that this fervent laughter and incredible familiarity with the forest Ghost — departing. Sweet creature Totoro (actually do do h), a kind of big, shaggy Pikachu is the warmth of childhood, which lives in each which is many overwhelming, considering feelings and emotions a sign of weakness.

Can long to analyze the images of the characters and the subtext, which has invested in a cartoon. Every scene and text separately. Meaning, I have to every minute of the film... Which is only meeting on the bus stop is perhaps the most powerful of the load. BUT! Not forget it is a cartoon from which you want to have fun, even if you have long been .... dtsat!
