My Neighbour Totoro (Japan, 1988)

One of Miyazaki’s earlier movies and utterly charming (usually I’d say that as an insult). The characterisation of Mei, a 4 year old girl, is brilliant and the animation brilliantly done. Even though it is a ‘feelgood’ movie the darker elements of life, unlike in Disney, are still present at the end. Great stuff. (DVD). http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096283/
