My neighbor Totoro

Porco Rosso

In French, this could be translated as Cochon rouge. And if the title refers to Italy, it is because the action takes place in Italy. Indeed, Porco Rosso is an Italian aviator, half man, half pig.

The end of Evangelion

Evangelion is a series, but this title is a movie, hence its place in this top. As for Naruto and Pokemon, a movie has been made from it.

It is therefore preferable to dive into this cyberpunk world via the series available in the catalog. It is cult in Japan, as much for its reflections as for its bloody scenes. The End of Evangelion is the conclusion of the anime,

The castle in the sky

In this adventure film released in 1986, two young people go in search of an island. This island, it seems, contains great wealth. It is this treasure that the young girl and the young boy covet. The film takes the audience, young and old, into a wonderful imaginary world.
