From Up on Poppy Hill

JAPAN | 2011 | 86 min | G

A group of Yokohama teens look to save their school’s clubhouse from the wrecking ball in preparations for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics.


In this breathtakingly beautiful Studio Ghibli film, siblings Satsuki and Mei move with their father to an old house in rural Japan in order to be closer to the hospital where their ill mother resides. Very shortly, Satsuki and Mei discover their new home is filled with susuwatari, or soot spirits, which they succeed in convincing to leave the house: however, that is just the beginning of their adventures with the community of spirits surrounding them that adults cannot see. Masterly crafted, My Neighbour Totoro is both a cult favourite and internationally acclaimed, consistently ranking high on lists of the best movies ever made, and Totoro himself has become an icon. – Crystal Madore
