In this incredibly sweet and imaginative animated fable, Satsuki and her little sister Mei move to the countryside with their dad to be near the hospital where their mum is staying. The girls soon discover that their new house and the forest surrounding it, are full of spirits - but friendly ones. When they befriend the giant, furry Totoro, and take a ride on a magical cat bus, the sisters can deal with their everyday problems that little bit better. A treat from the director of Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and Howl's Moving Castle.
