Here is another of my many obsessions: My Neighbor Totoro. The IMDB site has a few clips from it, but it must be experienced. If there was ever a more charming, feel-good, memorable movie, I haven’t seen it.
Here’s why, in a 10 minute video. There are a couple of commercials in the middle because of course there are, but bear with them for the rest of the review.
From the IMDB.com website:
Two young girls, 10-year-old Satsuki and her 4-year-old sister Mei, move into a house in the country with their father to be closer to their hospitalized mother. Satsuki and Mei discover that the nearby forest is inhabited by magical creatures called Totoros (pronounced toe-toe-ro). They soon befriend these Totoros, and have several magical adventures.Written by Christopher E. Meadows <email@example.com>
He doesn’t mention the tiny soot creatures, who are cute AF, but that’s okay.
Naturally, I have Totoro merch.
And, just in from Mundo de Unas inMexico:
Guess what my nails look like this week.
